This is a prototype snap of FlightGear. Only the application is built. The FlightGear data files must be downloaded separately and placed in $HOME/snap/flightgear/common/fgdata. In a future release we may automate this. For now, manually:

mkdir -p $HOME/snap/flightgear/common/

wget -O $HOME/snap/flightgear/common/fgdata.tar.bz2

cd $HOME/snap/flightgear/common/

tar xf fgdata.tar.txz

rm fgdata.tar.bz2

Build from source files at, this is an unofficial package. Please file any issues with this package at
