What is an .PAR file?

.PAR is FMS Aircraft Parameters File

A PAR file is an aircraft parameters file used by FMS (Flying-Model-Simulator), a flight simulation game for Windows. It saves the airplane geometry and physics properties such as mass, center of gravity, and inertia moments. PAR files are used for creating custom aircraft to fly in the game.

PAR files are one of several files that comprise the total aircraft data for the game. For example, there may be other 3D model files, texture bitmaps, and sounds.
