I'm very much addicted to the idea of getting FlightGear together with
X-Plane and M$FS into a single simulation  environment - last but not
least because this would answer a question we're regularly being asked
whenever the present FlightGear on a public show. So far I'm aware of
the following (commercial) HLA interfaces for X-Plane and MSFS:

X-Plane on Windows: http://www.memention.com/hlaxp/
MSFS: http://www.permian.com.au/products/flight_sim/
MSFS: http://www.acroneng.com/SimX.htm

Acron explicitly state that they're basing on the RPR FOM, Memention
state that they're using their own, Permian doesn't make any public
statement at all.
I neither own a Windows license (just one that runs on my little
netbook) nor do I have a licensed copy of MSFS or X-Plane, I don't even
have a second PeeCee ....  just a little PowerMac which is way to slow
to run any simulation. I might get my hands on this sort of stuff and
try to get the Acron plug-in running, yet I don't know how long it
would take ....

BTW, we're in the process to develop an OpenSource ATC voice
communication system based on Asterisk - just to complete the picture.

We'll see,
 Unix _IS_ user friendly - it's just selective about who its friends are !
