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

The goal of the '''FlightGear''' project is to create a sophisticated flight simulator framework for use in research or academic environments, for the development and pursuit of other interesting flight simulation ideas, and as an end-user application. We are developing a sophisticated, open simulation framework that can be expanded and improved upon by anyone interested in [[Volunteer|contributing]].

FlightGear comes with a set of illustrated documentation, notably "The Manual," which is included in the installation package. This wiki provides additional documentation on both user and development topics.
  
There are many exciting possibilities for an open, free flight sim. We hope that this project will be interesting and useful to many people in many areas.
