Fun Simulator with some good effects

I found a lot of the simulations to be fairly accurate and thus, rewarding to an experienced pilot.

I don't recommend using a wireless keyboard, however as it has some limitiations and some lag time. Corded keyboards will work better and faster.

No instructions and very few hints make it a difficult simulator for non-pilots in particular. You have know your air craft to guess at things like stall speeds and there is no cockpit instrumentation. I stumbled into a cockpit view from the 747, I have no idea how that happened !?

It took me about 4 hours to get to Level 25. The acrobatic flying was the most difficult. When you roll the plane, it pitches up and when you loop it, the images disappear for a while. Trottle settings don't have to change to do a loop, but you need to reduce it for downhill racing.

I had to guess about what was the object or goal, other than flying a mission without crashing. I can see there are time trials, too. You have to be a little inventive at times, like learning to dive into the water perpendicular to the flight path in the forest fire scenes. Also, water bombing doens't work from too low or too high. These are hints that aren't obvious. I fly about 1000 feet AGL most of the time, but it's fun to skim the ground a lot, too.

It's an App. It won't show up on your desktop or dock - you have to go to Launchpad.

I rated it a 3 out of 5 because it lacks a manual or user guide, references, and because it's still buggy. It did hang on me several times, but I was able to wake it up.

There is an accelerator (R key).

Lots of fun

Very good for the price. Terrific artwork and aircraft models. The scenery is basic but adequate. Operation is smooth and forgiving. I have the desktop version and use the keyboard, but I had to guess at the keyboard controls - where is the key control map?

fine for the price, but not a real flight sim

It's perfectly fun, but be warned that this isn't really a flight simulator. all of the controls are limited to being confined to pitch, roll and yaw the plane by only a few tens of degrees in each axis, and it's artificially hard to crash/stall/roll any of the planes
