Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, FlightGear is the most popular, open-source, flight simulator, running on Linux.
It is a realistic game, being played by both normal users and future airline pilots, because of its accurate details. It allows the user to fly aircrafts, helicopters, airliners or modern combat aircrafts on many tracks. The latest version available is FlightGear 3.0, which has been recently released. For information about it, see this article.
