Download FlightGear 2018.3.6 – the latest stable, supported release.

Download Latest Preview Release

Preview releases contain features that will be included in the next stable release, but receive only limited testing. As a result, some aircraft may not function correctly (or at all) and you might experience other problems with performance or features. Please give feedback on any problems you find via the forums and mailing list, to help make the next stable release better.

Download Aircraft

The easiest way to install aircraft is via the launcher – this will ensure aircraft are installed to the correct location, and get be updated easily when new versions are released by aircraft developers.

If you prefer to download aircraft manually, you can find download additional aircraft here.

Download Scenery

FlightGear has a seamless, continuous oblate ellipsoid world available for you to explore. Our terrain is based on 90m SRTM data and is very detailed. There are over 20,000 airports you can visit world wide. You can download 10×10 degree chunks of the world, run a utility called terrasync to fetch scenery as you fly (just in time), or purchase the entire world on a 3 DVD set.

Download Source Code

Here’s the best part. Every line of source code for this project is available under the GPL license. Cockpit builders, researchers, do-it-yourselfers, industry groups, and students will all find FlightGear very open, very flexible, very adaptable, and very interfacable.

FTP Mirrors

In the event that the primary FlightGear server is busy or slow we have a number of ftp mirror sites. Note: many web browsers will report a failed login rather than a busy server.

Purchase FlightGear DVDs and Gear

Those who prefer the complete FlightGear set on physical media can purchase a ready to run version of FlightGear (OSX or Windows) as well as the entire world scenery set. A portion of the sales goes towards supporting the project and a portion is donated to charity.
