App description: Now this a FUN little App.
Because you asked for it, we give you: X-Plane SEAPLANE.
We are starting off with a Canadair CL-415 Water-Bomber, Cessna 172 on floats, and a SeaKing twin-turbine helicopter to take driving, flying, and swimming.
All of these craft are amphibious, so they can handle water ops, as well as land on the paved runways.
Can you master the water take-offs and landings as well as the ones from dry-land?
Can you descend from hover in for a smooth water landing the SeaKing helo?
All of the dynamics here are realistic, and the new water rendering is pretty impressive can you handle these flying and swimming challenges?
We can.. and they are pretty darn fun!

Looks good, but I hope they will release this for X Plane HD as an add-on.

Okay, what is this "X-Plane" series all about? I am so out-of-the-loop here

It's an amazing Flight Simulater app, they have all different types of planes and made each new series a new type of plane.

Probably just me but I bought X-Plane Extreme and I wasn't all that impressed with it I honestly don't think it's even half as realistic as they claim it to be I mean I managed to land a plane first try while on older PC flight sims it was a major struggle not to mention thousands of little details like infinite fuel.

I'd say it's a decent app to show off but I feel it's just an attempt to cash in with numerous versions of the same game which hasn't really anything to do in the first place.

I think skyracer 2 actually has more realistic flight and a decent cockpit view although I would love to see them really improve x-plane instead of releasing twenty more versions.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out
