That sounds interesting, but it's not completely clear to me what they
acutally did to achieve this  ;-)
Did they create an interface within their own simulation that connects
to stock FlightGear, did they extend FlightGear with their specific
interface (source code available ?), did they modify the existing
FlightGear interface to match their needs ?

And a second question, please: Does their "Aerospace Blocks" have any
relation the "AeroSim Blockset" by U-Dynamics as presented on these
