I believe its intended for professional use rather than gamers. It allows companies to create training scenarios. Its built on the MS ESP platform which itself is built on FSX.

Its not really of any use to us as under the skin its just FSX (although apparently the ACES team are behind it so there may have been some fixes or improvements to the engine).
