However, the source files used to build the whole FlightGear package are continuously being developed by dozens of contributors, who collaborate using the source code management system Git to create a new "unstable" version every few days. If you want to use one of these unstable versions, or tinker with the source files to create your own custom version, the pages below describe how to compile the FlightGear package from the Git source files (repository at

If you'd like to use an integrated development environment, illustrated instructions for building FlightGear and its dependencies can be found in Howto:_Build_FlightGear_with_NetBeans_using_CMake.
