Introduction to FlightGear

What we’re hoping for here is that this will be a series of articles exploring the Open Source alternative to the commercial Flight Sims out there: FlightGear. Not being commercially funded it might not quite be as polished straight out of the box (there’s also no box) as you’re used to and hopefully we’ll be able to help with that as well as guide you through installing, configuring and finding the real gems within the community which give you a truly free Flight Sim experience. We'll start with an introduction to FlightGear.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at
