HOTAS For Xbox One
If space/flight simulators ever do make it to Xbox One we're going to need the appropriate controller. It would be perfered if we could use our current PC HOTAS controllers and plug them into the Xbox One, but considering all the different models would need different drivers/firmware to work on Xbox One it would be understandable it couldn't happen. I'm sure mad catz could produce a decent one for the Xbox One...just make sure it's a HOTAS.
Any update on this? Would love to play Elite Dangerous with One X enabled enhancements (assuming they happen), and be able to play with a flight stick.

No news for date in the horizont.
Thrustmaster hasn't even given a release date for this product.
It may not even happen.
The HOTAS controller has been confirmed. Thrustmaster is the company that has one coming out soon. Check there Twitter for the new.

Gets my vote! Fingers so crossed I can't open my bag of Wotsits. Seriously though, Elite Dangerous alone needs this support. Would purchase one the instant it became available.

This really needs to happen for elite dangerous considering playstation already has hotas support from war Thunder why has Xbox and not stepped up to the mark
Got to happen!!
This is just a basic. I have a hotas for gaming on my Windows 10 PC. I want to buy some of the same sim games on the Xbone but will not do so without HOTAS support. Microsoft said they would implement this like 3 years ago. What is the hold-up? Flying games are just not the same without throttle and stick. Rudder peddals should be supported too, but i'm less worried about that. MS supposedly going all Win10 across all platforms, blah, blah, then why can't I plug in a standard USB peripheral and have the Xbone pull the drivers from the cloud or internet?
Yes! That would be pretty sweet!
I can't believe the Playstation has HOTAS but Xbox One does not..... share this idea everywhere!!!! let's make it happen people!!!

Can't believe there's a steering wheel but no flightstick for the "new" console. It would make flying games so much more enjoyable! Maybe they'd bring back games like Star Wars Starfighter and Battle For Naboo!!! I'd buy one immediately, if it was anywhere close to a reasonable price!
The lack of hotas and vr gear makes me consider swapping to PlayStation

Almost three years since this idea has been expressed and still, less than a thousand votes. Let's face it boys, we don't have any weight in this discussion, manufacturers will never provide a specific hardware for sim fans nor Microsoft invest time to code the support of Windows HOTAS :|
Get this in the pipeline already! It's a no brainer.
I would definitely be in favor of HOTAS support on the XB1. And if Microsoft needs any further encouragement, it's already been confirmed that HOTAS support will be baked into the game's release when it comes out on the "competition's" console soon. So unless they want a mass exodus of Elite Dangerous players moving to another console, it's in everyone's best interest to start thinking along the lines of adding support.
With all the space/flight sims already released and upcoming for Xbox One (Elite: Dangerous, Everspace, Ace Combat 7, CDF Starfighter), why is there still no HOTAS support? That's simply the most immersive way to experience a flight sim (especially combined with VR for on Scorpio).
