This is a directory of modeling resources that are freely available on the Internet (for example 3D models, textures, images, sounds and tutorials).

Note  While many web pages offer free downloads and use of files, it may be necessary and indeed is recommended to explicitly ask the individual copyright holders for their permission to include their work within FlightGear.

In order to become part of the FlightGear base package, it is necessary for the copyrighted work to be licensed under the GNU General Public License. However, resources that are explicitly and without doubt in the public domain can possibly be included without an explicit GPL statement, however this still needs to be discussed in-depth within the community on a case-specific basis, as this, unlike GPL licensing, is not the preferred way of contributing contents to FlightGear.
