FlightGear is an open-source flight simulator. It supports a variety of popular platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.) and is developed by skilled volunteers from around the world. Source code for the entire project is available and licensed under the GNU General Public License.

The goal of the FlightGear project is to create a sophisticated and open flight simulator framework for use in research or academic environments, pilot training, as an industry engineering tool, for DIY-ers to pursue their favorite interesting flight simulation idea, and last but certainly not least as a fun, realistic, and challenging desktop flight simulator. We are developing a sophisticated, open simulation framework that can be expanded and improved upon by anyone interested in contributing.

    add_ppa_via_cli(ppa_line, codename)
    File “/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintSources/mintSources.py”, line 32, in add_ppa_via_cli

    Please disregard my earlier comment. I found the correct info here:http://desktoplinuxreviews.com/linux-tips/ubuntu-linux-tips/install-flightgear-flight-simulator-2-12-in-ubuntu-13-10-13-04-and-12-10/
    I wish the developers who post articles here would actually read the comments so they might update or correct data which is causing problems.
