Installed it: what I see is: watch ads to get coins. Repeat. That's for 10 minutes of playing.

Compete quests for coins, watch an ad for extra coins.

Ads are optional? I progressed from year 1920 or so (the start) to 1970 in one run. Maby in a bit more than a hour. No timers.

No timers , adds are optional.

Hi here, there are no timers, nor are adds required. beyond a few premium aircraft all other content can be unlocked by simply playing the game.

There's a deep management engine underneath the game that gets more difficult as complexity increases.
If you prefer a challenge without missions and progression, there's an advanced mode that can be activated from the settings. This gives you a clean start where the only objective is making enough money to progress each year. Basically a bit more of a simulation style game mode that doesn't try to hold your hand.

Actually the "quests" are only a tutorial to progress you through the timeline to unlock more complex features. It seems like a simple game at first, but after a while managing your network becomes an actual strategic venture.

I suggest you play beyond 1945 after which you get all the globe spanning airplanes and things become a lot more interesting/difficult.

There's actually a tremenedous amount of free content here.

ingame screens

Here's a screen of a small/medium network with its planes flying around realtime, there are over 70 possible airports/destinations to connect to. Each with different airports and setups


There's more than 25 airplanes in the game, besides a few fun IAP ones all are unlockable through play without videos or iaps, and all are based on historical airplanes and specs


You get to design each airport and upgrade it per building


once you have a big enough network things can get challenges, with lots of cascading problems, luckily there's loads of micromanagement you can also do.

You need to build more terminals/gates
each terminal comes with 2 gate slots (in the old one you build gate as an upgrade, don't know by hart if the new one also requires u 2 build new gate upgrades as well)

go to a city, and press the zoom in icon in the middle
you'll see the airport lay out, go to the building shop and purchase a terminal and some gates (if gates are required) you can then place them where u want, and new connections are unlocked.

If you'r still in the london/amsterdam part of the missions, you'll get a tutorial on terminals in a bit probably (or you tapped passed it)

but if you only have london and amsterdam, other connections aren't neccesary.. you first need to buy landing rights to another airport first (just tap on a nearby city on the globe and the buy/cost window will popup)
