Coordinate Systems for Display

The Aerospace Toolbox software lets you use FlightGear coordinates for rendering motion.

FlightGear is an open-source, third-party flight simulator with an interface supported by the Aerospace Toolbox product.

The FlightGear coordinates form a special body-fixed system, rotated from the standard body coordinate system about the y-axis by -180 degrees:

  • The x-axis is positive toward the back of the vehicle.

  • The y-axis is positive toward the right of the vehicle.

  • The z-axis is positive upward, e.g., wheels typically have the lowest z values.
