Thread: Flightgear flight simulator

  1. Default Flightgear flight simulator

    I just got an advertisement in my email from amazon. It's for a flight simulator, called flightgear. I read some of the reviews on it, and I guess it's free and open source. Anybody ever heard of it?

    Yes it has a forum of it's own on this site, scroll down past Microsoft Flight Sims, XPlane and P3D, and Flightgear is next.

    Yep, it's been around for a number of years. It's nice in many ways, and just keeps getting better.

    I’m surprised there was an advert for it.
    I thought for a moment you were going to say there was a price listed. There are scammers that try to SELL it, calling it a variety of different names, like.. Proflight. I used to be bombarded with emails, trying to sell me the best flight simulator ever! Special offer only £70! Etc of course what they trying to sell me was the completely free “flightgear” - only they would call it something else.

    What do you mean "heading your way"? You're behind times, Charlie. It's now over with. The high country got 10-20" and here at the house we got around 5" or so, and it's now 13ºF after a low of 8º.
