Pilot's Path - Open World, Helicopter Flight Simulator Coming Soon

Pilot's Path is an old-school, open world helicopter simulator where you play a dishonorably discharged USAF ace pilot. Without anywhere else to turn, you delve deep into a criminal underworld where kingpins and drug lords call upon your expert services to deliver certain... illicit goods. Make them angry and it'll be more than your career that's dead.

Most folks don't feel secure unless they have both feet planted firmly on solid ground. Long flights just aren't comfortable, and turbulence makes them feel sick. But you're different. You're an artist in a helicopter, and the skies are your canvas. Making a quick buck by slinging goods for the highest bidder, exploring the world from high up in your cockpit, and living life by your own rules - that's the Pilot's Path. So throw away your standard issue pilots' handbook and pump up the throttle.

The world is your oyster:
★ The world of Pilot's Path is unpredictable
★ Randomly generated maps for each new game
★ Explore over 50 islands in 2 huge locations
★ Collect and sell items from across the archipelagos to make more money
★ Visit the mechanic to make improvements to your helicopter
★ Increase hull integrity, fuel capacity, speed, radar capabilities, and more
★ Plenty of missions to keep you occupied

Unparalleled, engaging design:
★ Joystick controls that make flying your helicopter easy and intuitive
★ Beautifully rendered picture cut scenes
★ Unique retro design maximized for retina and full HD displays

Enjoy the flight with an optimized gaming experience:
★ Control remotely with another iOS device (via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth)
★ Play on a TV or a projector (HDMI, Airplay, VGA, RCA supported)
★ Configurable TV resolution
★ Full HD and other resolutions supported
★ Simple, super easy TV and remote setup

We are also looking for beta testers, so please PM me if you’re interested!

Well, not QUITE. No guns in this one, your mission is to collect items, make money, upgrade your copter, and keep exploring the massive areas while completing missions.

But randomly generated levels/areas? That I can promise: different experience each time you play.

So, if not an Instabuy, maybe a 5 minutes after it launches buy?

My suggestion on a non technical level to the developers here is that it would be great to have some kind of gold storage at the base. Perhaps a personal vault of some sort, to ensure that you don't lose all that gold by a mistake by hitting the rotors into a tree.
Taken! We're looking into it now. I'll let you guys know that buying the mechanic gifts will let you update one helicopter upgrade.

Also guys, we had a HUGE response to beta test requests and I'm out of codes. . But the game should be out next week and we'll do some more giveaways and stuff then.

Also, keep watching this forum: a new trailer with gameplay coming soon.
