The only thing remotely close to a flight simulator is Certain Impact. It's more of an arcade game than anything, but it is cool anyways. IT's a WWI biplane game, where you have to blow up the train before it gets to it's destination, while avoiding and destroying the enemy planes sent to intercept you.

There are no doubt other simulators, but they are extremely hard to find, lost to time, or jealously guarded by the military branches that own them. I think there was an F-14 simulator for one of the Onyx systems and maybe even an F-18 simulator(seen in demo), but good luck finding them.

There was a version of FlightGear available long time ago for Irix, which I didn't run for ages. I don't know if a newer version could be compiled, though.
Have a look there:
:Onyx2: : oxygen (4xR12k400) / :A3504L: :A3504L: : neon (16xI2 1.6, 9MB L2) / :O200: :O200: : beryllium (4xR12k270)
:Fuel: : nitrogen (R16k800) / :Octane2: : carbon (2xR14k600) / :Octane: : lithium (R10k400) / :Octane: : fluorine (2xR12k300) / spare 2xR12k360
:O2: : hydrogen (R10k195) / :O2: : sodium (R5k180) / :O2: : R5k180->200 MB and PM only
:Indigo2IMP: : helium (R10k195, HighImpact) / :Indigo2IMP: : boron (R4k250)/ :Indigo: : magnesium (R4k100) / :Indy: : aluminium (R5k180)
