App description: NOTE: This game requires an iPhone 4s / iPad 2 / iPad Mini 1/ iPod 5 or better.

Snap parts together to build your airplane's body. Place engines to add thrust. Design the wings, and then strap yourself into the cockpit and see how it flies.

AIRPLANE DESIGNER
You will have the tools to bring any aircraft to life. Design your own wings, shape the fuselage, customize propeller engines, and more.

DOWNLOAD AIRPLANES
A thriving community of players are creating next-generation fighters, WW2 warbirds, civilian aircraft, and everything in between. There are well over 50,000 airplanes and they are all free to download and fly. You can share your own airplanes and rise through the ranks to become a Bronze, Silver, or Gold Builder.

DYNAMIC FLIGHT MODEL
Every change you make in the designer impacts how the airplane flies. Weight, thrust, lift, and drag are all calculated continuously while flying.

REALTIME DAMAGE
Parts can break off in spectacular fashion while flying due to over-stress or by hitting something. The fun won't stop there though. You can keep on flying even with a missing wing if you've got the skills...the flight model updates in realtime to accurately simulate any damage to your airplane's structure.

SANDBOX MODE
So, you've had a rough landing and the left engine was knocked off? After watching the engine fly off into the sunset you may decide to go ahead and slap the throttle to full...and give it another go with only one engine. This is what sandbox mode was made for... test your airplane with no restrictions.

CHALLENGES
Land on aircraft carriers, dodge surface-to-air missiles, race through canyons, and much more.

FLOATING PARTS
Create airplanes that can take-off and land in the water, as well as fully functional boats complete with underwater rudders and keels for control and stability.

EDUCATIONAL
Tutorials will help players learn the basics of real airplane design and the considerations that need to be taken when airplanes are made.

Description
Bring all of the imaginative aircraft you've had in your head to life.
Snap parts together to build your airplane's body. Place engines to add thrust. Design the wings and then strap yourself into the pilot's seat and see how it flies.

AIRPLANE DESIGNER
You have the tools you'll need to bring almost any airplane to life. Use the flexible wing tool to change the shape of the wings and build almost anything.
Next-generation fighters, WW2 warbirds, civilian aircraft, and everything in between, some people have even made dragons, trains, and space stations.

DYNAMIC FLIGHT MODEL
Flight simulation at its finest. Every little change you make in the designer impacts how the airplane flies. Weight distribution, thrust, lift, and drag are all calculated before creating the final flight model.

REALTIME DAMAGE
Parts can break off in spectacular fashion while flying due to over-stress or by hitting something. The fun won't stop there though. You can keep on flying even with a missing wing if you've got the skills.

SANDBOX MODE
Test your airplane with no restrictions. So, you've had a rough landing and the left engine was knocked off? After watching the engine fly off into the sunset you may decide to go ahead and slap the throttle to full...give it another go with only one engine.

CHALLENGES
Climb into the cockpit of one of your custom aircraft and see how it does in the challenges. The challenges will keep you entertained for hours. Land on aircraft carriers, dodge surface-to-air missiles, race through courses, and so much more.

AIRPLANE PAINTER
Use pre-built themes, or paint every part of your bird to make it just the way you want. Share your favorite stylings with all of your friends.

CROSS-PLATFORM AIRPLANE SHARING
There are no in-app purchases to get access to the airplanes people have shared; they are all available to download for free from http://www.SimplePlanes.com. You can use them even if they were made on another platform.

CONTROLLER SUPPORT
SimplePlanes has full support for gamepads/joysticks, and provides in-game input mapping for each control surface, as well as throttle, brakes, landing gear, pausing, cameras, etc.

EDUCATIONAL
Tutorials will help players learn the basics of real airplane design and the considerations that need to be taken when airplanes are made.

Good job on posting the game Rich. I don't know how it went under the radar. I posted a thread didn't know you already did.

Yeah, I'm pretty stoked to play this, haven't had the time yet to sit down and tinker. This series is stocked with great games that are always very well put together. Surely TA will see that they've missed this and maybe do a small write up

The content in this app is incredible. I can't believe it isn't getting more attention. Also SimpleRockets is free now I presume to help publicise/celebrate the release of this incredible game.
