FlightGear is a free, Open Source flight simulator in development since 1996 and features many additional planes, helicopters, and scenery updates you can download.
FlightGear has the advantage of being around a long time and is probably the best, most developed free flight simulator you're going to find out there. It's better than many shareware sims. You can fly numerous planes, helicopters and download hundreds of additional models for free.
Being Open Source, you will find that many commercial games are based on older versions of FlightGear, including Earth Flight Sim, Flight Pro Sim, Flight Simulator Plus, Pro Flight Simulator, Real Flight Simulator, and Virtual Pilot 3D. So, if you're considering a shareware commercial flight simulator, we recommend you try this one first.
The goal of the project has always been a sophisticated and Open Source flight simulator for research or academic environments, pilot training, and of course, fun, realistic, and challenging desktop flight simulator for anyone to enjoy.
Due to the large size, links take you to Sourceforge for the download. Similar:
