- Professional Flight Sim -

POSSIBLY THE MOST REALISTIC FLIGHT SIM AVAILABLE!

Product Introduction

This flight simulator software offers a sophisticated, dynamic and realistic flight simulator experience with a high degree of accuracy.

A fully detailed flight simulator with support for over 20,000 of the worlds airports, extensive scenery packs as well as support for over 100+ different planes from Concordes, F16's, Migs, Boeing 747's, Helicopter's and much more.

You can quite literally fly anywhere in the world and land at any airport you wish.

Flexible and Open Aircraft Modeling System
FlightGear has the ability to model a wide variety of aircraft. Currently you can fly the 1903 Wright Flyer, strange flapping wing "ornithopters", a 747 and A320, various military jets, and several light singles. FlightGear has the ability to model those aircraft and just about everything in between.

FlightGear has extremely smooth and fluid instrument animation that updates at the same rate as your out-the-window view updates (i.e. as fast as your computer can crank, and not artificially limited and chunky like in some sims.)

FlightGear has the infrastructure to allow aircraft designers to build fully animated, fully operational, fully interactive 3D cockpits (which even update and display correctly from external chase plane views.)

FlightGear realistically models real world instrument behaviour.

Moderate Hardware Requirements
The intention of FlightGear is to look nice, but not at the expense of other aspects of a realistic simulator. Our focus is not on competing in the "game" market and not on the ultra-flashy graphic tricks.

The result is a simulator with moderate hardware requirements to run at smooth frame rates.

That said, the more hardware you throw at FlightGear, the better it looks and runs, so don't feel like you have to chuck your expensive new hardware if you just purchased it.

Networking options
A number of networking options allow FlightGear to communicate with other instances of FlightGear, GPS receivers, external flight dynamics modules, external autopilot or control modules, as well as other software such as the Open Glass Cockpit project and the Atlas mapping utility.

A generic input/output option allows for a user defined output protocol to a file, serial port or network client.  A multi player protocol is available for using FlightGear on a local network in a multi aircraft environment, for example to practice formation flight or for tower simulation purposes.

The powerful network options make it possible to synchronize several instances of FlightGear allowing for a multi-display, or even a cave environment. If all instances are running at the same frame rate consistently, it is possible to get extremely good and  tight synchronization between displays.


Hardware requirements
It requires a reasonable hardware accelerated 3D card to achieve smooth frame rates.  On a 2-3Ghz class CPU with a GeForce card, frame rates in excess of 60 fps are reasonable to expect in most situations. The actual frame rate varies of course with scene complexity (which changes from area to area and changes as your view direction changes) and the specific details of your hardware.
