Hello there,

I bought an I-Mac for a wonderful price. Smile .. The first reason was for my photography and then I thought that if I could play Flight simulator it would be great...

The question is: can I buy Flight simulator for my Mac? Or any other flying games?

Cheers guys Smile

They don't make it anymore, but if you can find a copy of Fly! for cheap (I bought one for $5 a few weeks ago), you won't regret it. That was my first simulator back when I had a Mac (can anyone guess why I turned to the dark side?  Wink ), and even though it was five years ago, it still beats MSFS silly in a few areas (panels and clouds).

I recommend Fly2K if it's compatible with the current OS versions. If not, Fly!II will suffice. You might want to look in the Avsim forums, where there is a bunch of Fly! devotees who are trying to keep the program going (the distributor rushed a really buggy Fly!II out the door way before it was ready, apparently so that it would die a quick death - which I guess it did, and the responsibility fell to third-party programmers to do what should have been done in the original release). Be warned, you'll have to do some patching, but it's still very worthwhile at the price.

Hello Mir,

A great price... So I may purchase it

Cheers for the recommendation.

I use X-Plane, it is an awesome simulator but ideally need a G4 processor to benefit with the graphics.
Instructions, manuals a/c and other downloads are available from www.x-plane.org.

Well worth buying as the demo disables vertical control after a few mins and trying to fly with the trim is useless!!!!

Try this, just found it;
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/m...htGear-0.9.8.dmg?use_mirror=heanet

its for mac.
