oups... the game is made by Microsoft, its called Combat Flight Simulator 3: Battle for Europe, shortly CFS3. its been released at 2002. it belongs to very popular Microsoft flight simulator series, which are all officially able to add own stuff. Microsoft even released source development kit documents, to share how to make it.
some people creating new airplanes, some people new worlds, fx effects etc. usually a lot of stuff is freeware, but there is also plenty of payware available, various quality.
this all keeps such games long living, having zillions of fans up today, just like Il-2: Sturmovik.
btw, there is not unusual some payware add-ons costs many many much more then the original game in its "gold" days
that depends, I suppose... first needs to be "visible" among the other products. next would be fine to be known as a good suff maker. but to be owner of some such related shop would be probably bit surer job.
I think plenty of such add-on makers are retirement age, having a lot of free time and they not doing it for money at first place.
