GeoFS is a multi-platform amateur flight simulator based on the Cesium WebGL Virtual Globe. The game features a variety of planes including aircraft contributed from the community, and makes use of satellite and aerial imagery. The game also features multiplayer environment for pilots to interact with each other. In Q4 2018, the GeoFS app was released for both Android and iOS devices. GeoFS on mobile features the Original, as well as a Lite app. The main difference between the two is that the Lite version is Single-Player, while the paid one also features multiplayer.
Created by Xavier Tassin, GeoFS was launched in October 2010. It was originally built on the Google Earth plug-in as GEFS-Online (Google Earth Flight Simulator). On September 1, 2015, support for the Google Earth plugin ended, which nearly resulted in a complete shutdown of GeoFS. In January 2016, in light of the Google Earth plugin's termination, GeoFS migrated to CesiumJS, an open source virtual globe platform.
