Scenery, a world class on its own

Scenery is the landscape in FlightGear (or any other simulator) and is therefore an essential part of the simulator. Contributing something back to the FlightGear world (literally) is both fun and rewarding.

One of the best aspects of FlightGear's open source character is the global scenery database.
