Best ATC sim but...
...still has a long way to go.
The aircraft control menu, which is what you use to give instructions to the aircraft is way too small for a touchscreen, probably fine for the pc version. Airplanes disappear when they touch the ground, there is no simulation of landing ground roll, which should be a factor for this game. The awesomeness of the variety of traffics and aircraft vanishes the time you instruct a Cessna 208 to increase airspeed to 250 kts, and it complies... or a C172 climbing at 150 kts... the terrible performance simulation is the single worst thing of this game, and the dev seriously should work on this... PLEASE!
Another feature that is missing is weather, there is a METAR report, but no wx radar feature to guide aircraft around cells.
Other than that the airport packs are a bit pricy, so it feels as though a great feature of the game would be to have a ton of different airports to play with, but only playing 3 or 4 because you are not spending 8 more bucks on 3 more airports. BTW, an airport request: Seoul-Incheon
Best ATC game on the market!
Pros - real schedules, real weather, change time of day so you can practice during lighter traffic times, controls are easy
Cons - add legacy airports to this version. I bought ATL and HNL when they were alone, don't play as well as the newer versions (can’t assign Sid/star, I’d buy them again for that feature). Group airports by region or sell individually instead of 3 at a time.
Overall, love the app, been playing for years!
Not bad, but download model makes it unbearable
This a better TRACON sim for iOS. Aircraft performance isn’t realistic for GA aircraft, but it’s not bad overall.
What makes the app unbearable is the way the developer groups airport downloads to squeeze the most amount of money out of you. For example, if you’d like to control aircraft in the metro NY area, you have to buy three separate expansion packs, at $8 each, because JFK, Newark, and La Guardia are each on separate expansion packs. Similarly, Miami and Fort Lauderdale are on separate packages, as are Chicago Midway and O’Hare. I bet the developer would see more downloads(i.e., make more money) if he packaged airports by region instead. I’m more likely to buy a NY package and a SOCAL package, than packages that include African and Asian airports I’ll never play
