Aircraft in FlightGear are often distributed from a hangar. The official FlightGear hangar is called FGAddon and it contains hundreds of aircraft at different stages of development (including aircraft from up to 20 years ago). Many aircraft are also distributed via 3rd-party hangars.
The FGAddon hangar is distributed using the GPLv2+ licensing terms - see the official FlightGear policy document. Third party hangars are free to license their content as they wish.
|Caution If licensing violations are found in a 3rd party hangar - including copying images, sounds, 3D objects or any other content that cannot be legally copied, or any non-legal licensing combinations - the FlightGear developers reserve the right to remove all mentions of that hangar from the official FlightGear web infrastructure (wiki, forum, mailing lists, etc.). The advertisement of illegal content via the official infrastructure could lead to legal problems for the FlightGear developers.|
Official FGAddon hangar
The FGAddon hangar is the official FlightGear hangar.
All official release aircraft can now be individually downloaded and updated with FlightGear itself. This is a nice way to browse new aircraft and make sure your favorites are always kept up to date.
The FGAddon version controlled repository contains in-development aircraft as well as aircraft tagged for FlightGear 3.4 and higher stable releases.
- FGAddon Hangar The Subversion version controlled repository for the official FlightGear aircraft on the SourceForge infrastructure, see FGAddon for details.
- Old fgdata Hangar The Gitorious archive of the official aircraft, migrated to the Internet Archive for archival and history preservation purposes. Aircraft were migrated to FGAddon in September 2014. For further details see the September 2014 newsletter announcement and the announcement topic on the forum
Third party sites
If a hangar provides a catalog URL file (catalog.xml), it can be added to the FlightGear QtLauncher to display all the aircraft of that hangar. You add the URL to the
catalog.xml on the Add-ons page in the Aircraft hangars section.
For details on how to create your own
catalog.xml file, see Hangar catalog.
These are links where you can download individual planes manually.
