Hello to new members! If you're not just starting out here at FGUK, but with FlightGear too, we're here to help you through the potentially tricky problems of installing and starting out with this powerful but admittedly slightly geeky simulator. Almost everyone at FGUK has installed FlightGear several times over, and we're familiar with most of the difficulties new pilots might face.
To this end, I've started a subforum especially for those starting out from scratch with Flightgear. Please feel free to post your questions in there, and we'll do our best to get you in the air as quickly as possible!
