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

FGo! is a simple GUI front-end for FlightGear written in Python. It takes slightly different approach than any other such application - it combines a simple GUI which allows you to select a plane, airport, runway, park position and scenario. In addition there is text window where you can write more advanced command line options that will be passed to FlightGear.

In its current state it also provides a checkbox for terragear and supports different languages. FGo! is available for download from in the first post of its forums thread.


All one have to know to set it up and run it is in FGo!s README.

Installation prerequisites:


Download and install python-2.6.6.msi and PIL-1.1.7.win32-py2.6.exe. These are the needed Python2.6-libs and binaries.

It may help to rename the file fgo in the root of your FGo!-Installation to fgo.py . Now you're setup for click and fly!


Just install python-imaging-tk (including all it's dependencies) from your favourite software-manager. That's it!
