Xlr8yourmac has posted a small blurb indicating the presence of a free open-source flight simulator available for a multitude of platforms, including the Mac. Titled FlightGear Flight Simulator, the app is meant for academic use as well as recreational.
The goal of the FlightGear project is to create a sophisticated flight simulator framework for use in research or academic environments, for the development and pursuit of other interesting flight simulation ideas, and as an end-user application. We are developing a sophisticated, open simulation framework that can be expanded and improved upon by anyone interested in contributing.Some of the features FlightGear has include over 20,000 real world airports, accurate terrain worldwide, and enough world scenery to span 11 CDs.
Those interested in downloading various related packages, including necessary binaries and executables, can find links to all the versions at the official FlightGear site.
