App description: The worlds most advanced flight simulator just got an upgrade.

Featuring brand new Internet multiplayer, combat missions, emergency scenarios, tutorials, 3-D cockpits, and more, X-Plane 10 Mobile is enough to make our desktop users jealous.

Can you race through the Grand Canyon at supersonic speeds in an F-22... or will you end up as another scorch mark on the canyon wall?

After your friend from halfway across the world* fires a heatseeking missile at you, will you be able to shake it off and retaliate?

When a flock of birds takes out your windshield and your engines just after takeoff, will you be able to get safely down to the ground?

If a dozen anti-aircraft guns and a surface-to-air missile launcher stood between you and your target, could you get through and complete your mission?

Will you be able to keep cool when your engine catches fire and fills your cockpit with smoke... or will you go down in the flames?

Do you want to find out?

X-Plane 10 Mobile features 24 challenges, ranging from emergency situations to combat scenarios. In addition, we've added 9 tutorials, teaching the basics of takeoffs & landings, traffic patterns, helicopters, & more.

This all takes place in a beautiful world created with realistic 3D scenery. Airports are populated with terminal buildings, jetways and other airport clutter. Cities are built with 3D buildings.

The app includes the Cessna 172 and CirrusJet SF50 (plus all 5 scenery regions) for free. In addition, the following aircraft are available as in-app purchases:
Airbus A320 Airliner
Boeing B737-800 Airliner
Boeing B777-200ER Airliner
Boeing 747-400 Jumbo Jet
Bombardier CRJ200 Regional Jet
Douglas DC-3 Airliner
McDonnell Douglas MD-80
A-10 Thunderbolt II (Warthog)
F-22 Raptor
F-4 Phantom II
Beechcraft Baron B58
Beechcraft King Air C90B

Plus, all aircraft now feature gorgeous, interactive 3-D cockpits!

Is there an IAP to unlock all the planes? I've just seen the Airbus A320 goes for $5, and there are a dozen planes to buy...

Nope. 6 planes can be purchased individually ranging from 0.69- 2.99, $0.99-$5??.

$31 total if I counted right. Without maps, any sort of route tracking or at.

Well, I've been playing with this for a while this morning, and compared to X-Plane-4G its a lot more accessible, with better UI and more immediate gratification. Aside from the free plane though it seems to have a lot less bang for the buck - those planes better come in packs (like the separate apps previously) or drop in price. If there was a $1 plane I was interested in I'd snag it just to see if the adds (in menu at bottom, not too intrusive) go away. If that A10 was $3 I'd have bought that to go on bombing runs.

With the previous set of apps, you could have gotten them all for $30 (or less - they went on sale sometimes) and gotten a lot more content. The UI was not as clean (the 4G version was almost too bad to read the tiny text, my 6+ has improved that though) and the graphics are not as good, but it's not like the flight sim model is radically different. But it looks like they're all gone from the store, and I checked the IAP and it no longer works.

Certainly worth a shot for free, have fun with that Cessna.

Any means to turn off that ad?
