Game Introduction

This very difficult simulation game challenges you to figure out all the quirks of flying a commercial airliner, from takeoff to landing, mastering all the intricate steps and maintaining a smooth flight so that the passengers stay happy.

Game Play

The game focuses on the two trickiest parts of commercial flights: takeoff and landing. In both parts, you must go through all the correct procedures (including talking to the control towers), maneuvering the throttle and positioning your plane correctly. You must also maintain a smooth approach to avoid riling the passengers. After each segment, you will be graded on your performance and you must earn a passing score to continue the game.
