I've played a couple in my time...
The one that was the best was called Tower. It was only three airports though (a fake one, National and O'Hare).
There was also one even from even earlier (we're talking DOS now) called Tracon. It was also good, actually better than Tower in my opinion.
If you have a Commodore 64 emulator, there is a game from 1983 called Kennedy Approach.
I don't know of anything newer though. Tower is probably downloadable around the place if you search for it...
