Personally, I’ve never tested FlightGear due to the platforms obvious technical limitations and visual quality shortcomings.  Nonetheless, it’s certainly an interesting development to follow, congratulations to the open source development community for a job well done!  Being open source, the software is of course completely free and available to all.
