The FlightGear Flight Simulator - Realism through Adaptability

The open source flight simulator FlightGear aims to be as realistic as possible, yet run well on a desktop computer system. The many different applications for simulators impose conflicting needs, which historically has led to huge, complex and expensive systems. The open source approach allows the conflicts to be resolved by compile time configuration and module substitutions.

This talk introduces the scientific and engineering challenges and presents some work currently in progress, where the simulator is being optimized to address specific flight training concerns.
