No. Bold Games (now owned by Destineer Publishing) once (year 2001, if the memory serves) announced that they would port MSFS 2002 to Mac and that announcement got even published on Apple's gaming site, but eventually the whole project turned out to be vaporware.
I remember the announcement too.
If by some strange reason, you've not noticed (not you Ari), the IMG Flight Sim Roundup 2006
is now published. Since 2006 is less than a month away, I decided to give it the 2006 label.
BTW, I don't know how many of you flight sim types read PC Gamer but in the Jan issue some flight sim stats were posted which I'll repeat for some perspective on how weak the flight sim market is even on the PC side. I would assume there are 1/10 the number of Mac gamers (as PC Gamers) and those interested in flight sims are even less so you can see the challenge of producing a profitable flight sim for the Mac...
