Firemint has just announced that their widely popular Flight Control for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch will be making its way to the Mac sometime later this month via the Steam platform. In case you are not familier with the popular game Firemint has a nice summary:

In Flight Control HD, you take on the role of an air traffic controller at an increasingly busy airport. Using your mouse or trackpad, you can select a plane and trace a path to the correct landing zone. As the airspace gets more and more busy, your challenge is to land all flights safely, without collisions!

Here’s the announcement regarding the Mac version of Flight Control HD:

The Steam version of Flight Control HD will feature a brand-new, exclusive map. The new “Stunt Flying” map will introduce an exciting new gameplay element, where you can score extra points for flying through a course of stunt cones before landing. This adds a new challenge to the much-loved and insanely addictive gameplay first made famous by the worldwide iPhone hit that has now been downloaded more than 3 million times. Flight Control HD for Steam will also feature Steam achievements and leaderboards, and will be available world-wide.

Firemint notes that a version for the upcoming Mac App Store will be available when the store launches in around 90 days from now. In the meantime, you can start practicing on your iPhone and iPod touch or iPad.
