So I made a simple flight simulator to learn OpenGL which uses SFML for context creation, input/events as well as loading images.

Update: See this

The plane can be controlled with WASD or the arrow keys. The interface is also quite simple with only some command line arguments.

Here's a video of it in action!

Looks quite neat! :)

Do you plan on using it to create something bigger or do you move on with other OpenGL development?

I don't really have any plans to make this into anything bigger except I could some novelty things like explosions and stuff in the future. This was just a little experiment in 3D graphics.

Good job! If there was a aircraft machine gun, rocket launcher and some enemies, it would be great and fun!  ;)

This is really cool. Even though its more reminiscent of a Pilot Wings type of game, my first thought was that of X-Wing / TIE Fighter.

Update:

I've added collision detection and and a particle system for explosions!
Other than that, smoother controls, fixes and now the camera can be rotated/zoomed with the mouse.

And a longer video with the improved controls: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5BADaksV78
