This wiki page lists all information required for participants to the FSweekend and the attached multiplayer event(s). FlightGear will be represented by a team of five and two half developers.

Booth information

This year's booth will probably exist of:

  • an UMTS usb stick for unlimited date use at high speed, so users from all over the world can visit us virtually.
  • a bunch of 3D glasses, to demo the anaglyph ability of FlightGear.
  • a FlightGear based procedure trainer.

Flight information


Activities will mainly take place at and around Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (EHAM), Lelystad Airport (EHLE), Volkel Air Base (EHVK) and EH0001.


All charts that you may have to use on your flights are available at http://ais-netherlands.nl (AIS Publications > Integrated Package). Please note that these are the most up to date charts available, so certain situations might not have been changed in FlightGear (EHAM, EHLE and EHVK taxiways should be correct though).

Parking positions have been created for most of the Dutch airports including EHAM, EHRD, EHVK and EHLE (A1-A6, B1 and B2).

All named airports are for civil usage, except for Volkel Air Base (EHVK). This base will be occupied by the (AI) F-16 squadrons and likely one setup in Lelystad. Feel free to join with your F-16 or other Dutch mil aircraft.

Weather information

Reallife weather information can be found at the KNMI (Dutch Meteological institute) website.

  • METAR current weather at airports
  • TAF expected weather at airports


We will be using newly generated scenery in Lelystad.


We are currently discussing the possibility of a special TransGear(-like) event throughout the weekend.
