Is there a Linux-compatible R/C simulator that works with real radios? [closed]

My Dad flies radio-controlled (R/C) aircraft. He used to run a simulator called "RealFlight" which allowed him to connect his actual radio to his computer and fly simulated craft. He learned enough to fly actual planes, but he wants to move up from "trainer" aircraft to higher-performance craft. After some crashes, he'd like to go back to the simulator for a while. The catch: he's given up Windows and is now running Ubuntu.

Flightgear is compatible with this R/C USB-Interface for flight simulators (which is compatible with Linux)."
