Excellent overall; some issues

I've had pocket wings for a long time; years. Every now and then I like to buy a new plane and enjoy testing the capabilities of each one. I have found this to be a surprisingly accurate flight model which makes real-life maneuvers like stalls, slow flight, and landing pattern work possible and even enjoyable.

That said, I have found some issues that I'd like to address. With the last update the DC-3 became nearly impossible to fly. It yaws drastically to the right at all power settings.

Something else I've noticed is that many of the jet aircraft bounce like crazy upon landing. I know, it could just be me screwing up the flare but it seems like I can never get a decent landing with a few of the payware aircraft.

On a few of the high performance aircraft the airpseed indicator numbers are mislabeled (300kts where 200kts should be). Honestly not a huge deal.

One suggestion I have, if you were ever to add anything else to this awesome app would be to add an altimeter. Being able to do approaches to the carrier and other airfields would be so much easier or more consistent if there would be a way to see my altitude.

Overall a really awesome little sim that I've spent way too much time on. I don't know if there's any plans for an update but just know you've still got a loyal user here. Thanks!

I think the game should have multiplayer and online gameplay. Other than that this is a very great game.

Good flying game. Airspeeds are fairly accurate. A little tough to control on the ground,rudder controls would help with that Also a helicopter or two would be nice. Overall a low stress flight sim. Good job. PS the Bombardier 415 should be able to land in the water and then you drop the gear and taxi up onto the land. That might be to big of a fix but I thought you guys might like to know.
