App description: Ever wonder if you've got what it takes to control the skies?

SkyTroller is an air traffic control game for the iPhone or iPod Touch. From the vantage of your radar screen you watch as flights from across the country converge in your airspace high over Kansas. But don't get too comfortable... you have only seconds to react and keep aircraft in your sector safe as jets bear down on each other at nearly 900 miles per hour.

Air traffic controllers need cool heads and strategic minds as they strive to avoid "Critical Separation Losses". Plan ahead and respond quickly by assigning new flight levels as traffic conflicts arise, and you can stay on the job to play another day.

See if you've got what it takes! Score high enough and you never know, the FAA might call.

I wish the game descriptions told you how you would be manipulating the jets

...hmmm, tho I'm not sure if the directions make it seem fun or if it's a game designed to give you an ulcer


They should have named the game "Pushing Tin"

So the only control you have is changing incoming planes' height?

ya I know, I'm kinda sad. Was hoping that it was going to turn out to be good cause it sure does look realistic all the way down to the flight progress strips which are used in real life. There's gotta be something good....

Altitude Separation

Thanks for the comments. FYI, SkyTroller was built to teach the basic skills of ATC and to give people a feel for what the job is really like within the confined spaces and capability of the iPhone or iPod touch. Since there was already a game out there that relied entirely on vectoring around an airport, we thought it would be fun to offer another view of the sport.

Altitude is called `the controller`s friend`for good reason. It is the primary tool by which separation is effected, with vectoring (changing direction) and speed control used very sparingly, especially in enroute applications. Terminal and airport control, not so much.

We`re already taking suggestions and dreaming up how we can add more features in the future. In the meantime, *IF* you can solve the puzzle using altitude separation alone, the FAA wants to hear from you!
