MI-17 Helicopter Simulator: FlightGear Core FLOSS Inside

After a year of continous work of the CICTE (Peruvian Army) to develop a new MI-17 helicopter simulator, in the SITDEF the beta release for the solution was properly showed.  ICTEC, my company, as software consultor for the DIDETEC/CICTE, suggest -obviously- FLOSS solutions to make the develop times faster and in this case, the core of the new peruvian simulator is a FlightGear based application.
Many months of training in Blender, Python/GTK/Glade, Databases, etc. allows to the people of the CICTE build now a really good and cheap option (the budget was about US$ 600k, meanwhile the market offers at least US$ 3.5M simulators).  Peru is making our own technology pieces and FLOSS based (wait for more technical news).
We also contribute (and return) to the Open Community with articles like this: Building_terragear-cs_in_Ubuntu_64
