We'll see. As far as I understand nobody has so far seen their ATC
display working and they've not been very communicative about the
We ("The FlightGear Community") already _do_ have a nicely working
OpenSource ATC workplace which is designed to switch different
'frontends' for use with different protocols (FlightGear MultiPlayer,
probably FLARM, maybe even real data according to EUROCONTROL's specs)
and adapting that one to CERTI/VirtualAir ist just a matter of having a
working testbed with FlightGear (which is now available) and at least a
rudimentary Java interface to CERTI.

Indeed, this might pose certain difficulties when visualizing closeup
scenarios, but is pretty much tolerable for long-range and ATC

P.S.: For those who don't know, Jon and I are the two maintainers of
      FlightGears 'Scenemodels' repository at:
 Unix _IS_ user friendly - it's just selective about who its friends are !
