FlightGear Flight Simulator

This is a seriously cool Flight Simulator! There are binaries for various Operating Systems (including Windows) and map data for the entire world. If you order them, the whole set comes on 3 DVD's for $40. I'm thinking a Live-CD with FlightGear module might be kind of cool. Oh, and imagine flying it on the Access Grid...

From the "Introduction" page:

The FlightGear flight simulator project is an open-source, multi-platform, cooperative flight simulator development project. Source code for the entire project is available and licensed under the GNU General Public License.

The goal of the FlightGear project is to create a sophisticated flight simulator framework for use in research or academic environments, for the development and pursuit of other interesting flight simulation ideas, and as an end-user application. We are developing a sophisticated, open simulation framework that can be expanded and improved upon by anyone interested in contributing.
