  Description     : the JSBSim flight dynamics model

JSBSim is an open source FDM that compiles and runs under many
operating systems, including Microsoft Windows, Apple Macintosh,
Linux, IRIX, Cygwin (Unix on Windows), etc. The FDM is essentially the
physics/math model that defines the movement of an aircraft, rocket,
etc., under the forces and moments applied to it using the various
control mechanisms and from the forces of nature. JSBSim has no native
graphics. It can be run by itself as a standalone program, taking
input from a script file and various vehicle configuration files. It
can also be incorporated into a larger flight simulator implementation
that includes a visual system. The most notable examples of the use of
JSBSim are currently seen in the open source FlightGear, Outerra, and
OpenEaagles simulators. JSBSim models the aerodynamic forces and
moments by the classic coefficient buildup method.
