I've always wanted an excuse to get a joystick... might pull the trigger for one. To get into a few of the other games that I put off because of it.
It does work with a 360 controller. Haven't tried it yet though.
For joysticks, your best bet is a Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X. http://www.amazon.com/Thrustmaster-T-Flight-Hotas-Flight-Playstation-3/dp/B001CXYMFS
Dirt cheap and works great. And ignore that Playstation bit in the link, it works on both that and PC.
The hardest thing with joysticks is getting proficient with the twist for rudder. I'm terrible at it as I tend to twist inadvertently, the T-Flight also has a rocker on the throttle that is better, but still not as great as proper foot pedals.
