Tried it. Didn't expect much divertimento for a buck.

It's not a full blown flight simulator like Microsoft Flight Simulator (that I played years ago, 10? 15?) but kind of fun simulator. Flying and landing is easy. Explored the surroundings a bit with the Cessna and almost got trapped in the harbour (didn't find the "exit" in direction to the town) but finally I made it back to the streets. Pretty good flight feeling with three camera views.

Love the propeller in front of my nose. Visual speed of rotation is tied in to the throttle.

Then I had a blast for 30 minutes or so just driving (taxiing) like a car through the streets in the early morning lights (rather dark by 4 clock 30 realtime here where I live). But nobody woke up and cared about a plane driving downtown. Spooky town. It would be nice if there would be some real steep streets like in San Francisco. The simple controls seem to be real.

Looks like this on iPad 3:



Will try to land on some roofs of high buildings as some pilots did it in the other thread:

(Dev is present and gunxsword loves it.)

Then take the other jet plane and do the same with more power. So you have 60 minutes of fun maybe. Will pick it up again for sure when the "massive update" is here.
