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).

Atmosphere Model

JSBSim can use its own internal atmosphere, based on the 1976 U.S. Standard Atmosphere, or it can be set at intitialization time to use FlightGear's atmosphere.

JSBSim has three available turbulence models: Milspec, Tustin and Culp. The default model is Milspec. The turbulence model can be set at startup using the property /environment/params/jsbsim-turbulence-model, using one of the following string values:

  • ttMilspec
  • ttTustin
  • ttCulp
  • ttNone
