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.

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.
