A few questions for Matt:

How do you get the 100,000 and 327,000 feet achievements? Is this for future aircraft?

And also: any hints on what's coming in the next update?

Can you plot using VOR? Or is it more like fly around a bit and hope you find an airport with an ILS you can intercept?
You can't navigate using VOR's at this point nope. For the ILS, you can see the equipped runways on the map. Those that have the red localizer paths have an ILS Just create your flight plan through to the points that follow the localizer and you'll vector yourself to the ILS.

You can also get the approach plates on Airnav, input the approach and shoot it

Achievements: Yep, it's for future airplanes
Next Update: No defined feature set at this point but we're working on scenery improvements right now.

Yep. Not as high quality as the other high end devices because of memory limitations, but it'll will have the new stuff.

It'd be nice to have some generic but exciting scenery like mountains or canyons...xplane does this well but this has the potential to be better

I have been "watching" this app for quite some time. I am very interested and I notice that there are a number of very interesting planes and maps which are only available though IAP, so I keep on "watching"...

As a flight sim (combat mostly) and racing sim fan when I was younger (and wild), I appreciate your efforts here and wish there were something remotely close to GPL for racing like what you did with flight sim.

All the best.
