Airbus A310 Landing

Wind is an important part of any flight simulation model. And landing/take off is probably the most critical maneuver if strong wind is involved. To show the capabilities of the FixedWingLib, we have simulated a landing maneuver of an A310 against strong lateral wind.

Below you can find the high resolution version of the videos:

Introducing FixedWingLib Beta Program Blog

As you have probably noticed, we have a new blog, which is dedicated to the FixedWingLib beta program. We plan to share a good amount of information related to our fixed wing realtime flight simulation middleware.

If you wish to join the beta program to get early access to the SDK and use the FixedWingLib flight dynamics in your simulations, please follow this link.


FixedWingLib Beta 1 is out !

Here is a short overview first.

What’s Fixed Wing Lib ?
FixedWingLib includes a general purpose fixed wing flight dynamics model which can be used in flight training devices and other simulation applications. Major features :

  • 6 DOF Reconfigurable Flight Dynamics Model
  • Steering and landing gears
  • Runway friction model
  • Basic control system for stability augmentation
  • Animation API (for animation of control surfaces, gear and other mechanical frames)

What is FixedWingLib Beta Program ?

With the Beta Program, you can get early access to the FixedWingLib C++ Flight Dynamics package. You can add it to your applications. and deliver to customers. We will ask you for your opinion and provide you also with technical support.
