The Flight Gear project is working to create a sophisticated and open flight simulator framework for use in research or academic environments, pilot training, as an industry engineering tool, for DIY-ers to pursue their favorite interesting flight simulation idea, and last but certainly not least as a fun, realistic, and challenging desktop flight simulator.

FlightGear features more than 400 aircraft, a worldwide scenery database, a worldwide multi-player environment, detailed sky modelling, a flexible and open aircraft modelling system, varied networking options, multiple display support, a powerful scripting language and an open architecture.

Aircraft operations: At selected airports, FlightGear can automatically start at an appropriate parking spot based on the size and type of your aircraft. At airports which support this feature, a visual display of the taxi route on the ground guides you to the active runway, while following the correct taxiways. AI system To reduce stuttering during model loading and take further advantage of multi-core CPUs, MP and AI aircraft models are now loaded in a background thread. To reduce load times still further, only the parts of the aircraft currently visible are loaded from disk. AI and multiplayer aircraft are no longer silent objects, they can produce sounds just like the main aircraft.
