Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Revision as of 12:25, 10 January 2012

This list is not updated to include all the official GPL licensed aircraft for FlightGear, but gives a visual sampling of the different types of aircraft and genres of aircraft officially available. See Table of models for the comprehensive list.

The examples listed here are officially available from the FlightGear project, and can be downloaded at FlightGear.org, with installation typically requiring an unzipping program, and manual installation in the FlightGear aircraft directory. More aircraft are available in non-official hangars.

FlightGear aircraft features, quality, and compatibility vary significantly. Their development is dependent on the volunteers who worked on them, with exception of some University and Government funded projects.

Light civilian aircraft

The Cessna 172 is the default aircraft in FGFS 2.0. These aircraft typically have 1-2 piston engines, props, and avionics geared towards those with civilian pilot licenses.

Modern Airliners

These typically have 2-4 turbofan engines and some of the more complicated takeoff and landing procedures (such as multiple flaps). In addition, avionics in real life is geared towards those with professional pilots licenses and special certifications. However, the simplifications of FG make it much easier to fly in the simulation.

Helicopters

1rightarrow.png See Helicopter for the main article about this subject.

Helicopters have fundamentally different controls than fixed wing aircraft (see Flying the Helicopter). Modern helicopter typically feature 1-2 turbine engines, which power a main rotor with 2-6 blades.

Gliders, Sailplanes, & Ultralights

These typically have the simplest controls, with minimal avionics. Flying gliders or sailplanes using thermals can provide more complicated experience. Ultralights on the other hand are among the simplest aircraft in FG.

Lighter than air aircraft (Available from version 1.9.0)

These aircraft take advantage of lighter than air gas to become buoyant. In addition to typical aircraft control methods such as elevator, rudder and engine throttle, ballast and control of gas volume and pressure become options.
