  • Build airports
  • Create building models according to templates and measures made on map
  • Import OpenFlight models and export them to the FlightGear scenery format

The developer must present binary packages for current Windows and MAC OS versions as well as either present binary packages for the major Linux distributions (namely Ubuntu, OpenSuse and Debian) or present a sufficient documentation for compiling that enables an averagely experienced Linux user to compile the source him-/herself.


The code must be released as Open Source under the GPL or a compatible license
