    I am really concerned running x-plane for an extended period of time because of the heat it generates.

    What temperatures do you experience then? Either report back in Celsius or Kelvin (or Fahrenheit if you must) using iStat Pro or any of the other available Mac Hardware Temperature Monitor applications.

    And in between maybe read this: Those Macs in their heat - a sine of over-heating? - a short story by Mister GGJstudios

    PS: The Mac may feel warm, due to its aluminium enclosure, which is what it should do, due to its use as heat radiator, during CPU or GPU intensive sessions of FriendFace.
