Flying is safe, but are you prepared to cope with emergencies?

This 3D game has been developed in the context of an international, aviation safety research project (, aimed at exploring possible new approaches to safety education, and featured on important media such as TIME, Popular Mechanics, Discovery Channel, and Fox News (see

Prepare for Impact is the world-first game that reproduces the experience of real aircraft emergencies from the passenger’s viewpoint, with the highest fidelity allowed by today’s mobile devices. In each virtual emergency experience, the player can try first-hand right and wrong actions that a passenger can take, and see the positive or negative consequences those actions have.

Your goal is to take all the right decisions to come out from the plane unharmed as fast as possible.

The different levels of "Prepare for Impact" depict major types of emergencies, such as in-flight decompression, ground collision, runway overrun, water landing, crash landing, rejected take-off, and fumes in the cabin. Moreover, they are able to simulate the different threats that can make aircraft evacuation more complex, such as fire, smoke in the cabin, water, unusable exits, and others. The latest version of the app also includes a level editor that allows players to create personalized evacuation scenarios.

The game also offers the option of publishing your best evacuation results on world leaderboards.

Well it just ends

I was enjoying the game but then it just ended no more missions. I got bored and deleted it and downloaded it 5 times but I still always get bored.
Your game is great but it’s boring, if you could add features like, choosing your plane in crash generator, and actually enjoy the flight and feel like you’re riding on a plane then the ride goes wrong and crashes. I also mean boarding.

More Planes, and how about this...

I want updates. We all do. I want a Boeing 737 MAX 9, a DC-10, an MD-11, and a Lockheed L1011. We want Aircraft selectors. We want to choose where the mission starts. We want to be able to go into the cockpits and bathrooms. We want to be able to create our own levels from the start, like this:
Select Your Aircraft: Boeing: B727, B737, B757, B767, B777, B787. Airbus: A320, A330, A340, A380. Embraer: E170, E190.
CRJ: 1000, 200, 700.
Select your role: Pilot (Make this like X-Plane 10, but with directions how to Crash like nose down, nose up, left, right... etc) or Passenger.
Select Crash Type: Dual Engine Failure, Dual Engine Fire, Lack of Fuel, Pilot Error, or Forced Water Landing (US Airways Flight 1549), Runway overrun, Emergency Landing, Sick Passenger, Pilot Suicide, or Fly A Normal Everyday Flight.
Where to Crash, or fly to:
A mountain, the ocean, a river, the runway, an Isolated Field, or a building.
Damage: Whole Aircraft, Left Wing, Right Wing, Both Wings, Tail, half of Plane, Cockpit.
Flight time: Short Flight, Long Haul, Medium Haul.
Airport Origin/Destination: Any airport you can pick in the world
Then the play button.
