http://www.microprose.com/
It even has a Facebook page, which is how I came across it. It used to be a force in simulations. I still own a few from back in the day. The web page is kind of meager, and it seems to be reaching out for talent. New management?

Geoff Crammond's Grand Prix was an awesome game - that 'take it in turns' multiplayer let six of us run whole F1 seasons before we knew there was an internet. But before that there was Gunship, Red Storm Rising, Silent Service, and Pirates!

So yeah, bring it on :D

I must go up to the skies again, to the peace of silent flight, To the gull’s way, and the hawk’s way, and the free wings’ delight;
And all I ask is a friendly joke with a laughing fellow rover, And a large beer, and a deep sleep, when the long flight’s over.
