FGx is a cross-platform open source graphical launcher application for FlightGear using Qt. Development began in early 2011 with the purpose of creating a fast and easy to use tool to launch FlightGear on OSX/Mac hence the "x". While initial development targeted the Apple Mac architecture, the Qt development environment allows for cross-platform compatibility between Windows, Mac OS and various Linux distributions.
