Anyone remember this game?

I hope this isn't too off-topic, but I've been trying unsuccessfully for many years to track down a particular Apple ][ game that I remember from 1981. It was my first ever experience on a personal computer and very instrumental in what ultimately became a 16-year-long career as a professional game developer.

The game itself was text-based graphics and you flew an airplane delivering mail from airport to airport. The "camera" (for want of a better word) was in front looking back. You got exposed to various elements (strong winds etc) and when it was time to land you got a notification so that you could prepare for touchdown. The "graphics" looked roughly like this:

              --------X--------
                     / \
                    o   o

  
               ----------------


My family never owned an Apple ][ (despite me desperately wanting one), does anyone remember a game from that era that fits this description?
