Flightgear is a free, open-source multi-platform flight simulator.
The simulation engine in FlightGear is called SimGear. It is used as in the end-user application and in academic and research environments for the development and pursuit of flight simulation ideas.
This customizability of FlightGear is illustrated by the wide range of aircraft models that are available in FlightGear, from gliders to helicopters, and from airliners to fighter jets. These aircraft models have been contributed by many different people.
FlightGear has been used in a range of projects in academia and industry (including NASA) and even home-built cockpits.
The last version (v.3), came out some weeks ago, bringing a lot of interesting improvements that place FlightGear a top-software for the flight simulation.
