The Mac OS X launcher.

The FlightGear Mac OS X Launcher was a graphical front end for FlightGear which was included in official Mac releases from FlightGear 0.9.10 to 3.2. It is not compatible with OS X Yosemite (10.10) and later because some libraries required for it to work were removed by Apple (see ticket #1521). For this reason, it was replaced by the FlightGear Qt launcher in FlightGear 3.4 and later.

Launching FlightGear without launcher

Users who have OS X Yosemite or later, but who are still on an older version of FlightGear without Qt launcher, can either:

  • use the command line (Terminal.app) to start the simulator. Open it and issue the following commands:
cd /Applications/FlightGear.app/Contents/Resources
