When I sat down to play Airplane Fly 3D, I had one burning question in mind: can an airplane flight simulator be any fun? I went in with an open mind, and I am glad to say I was not disappointed. As far flight simulators go, this one is worth picking up. No wonder it has over 5 million downloads on the app store.
Airplane Fly 3D Flight Controls
Although the words “flight simulator” are being used to describe the game, the learning curve is not that hard. Your plane on the runway and you are required to get it to an attitude that allows it to take flight. This can easily be achieved by pushing the thrust lever at the bottom right-hand side of the screen up to gain speed.
Once the airplane has gained enough speed, it can take off. You can tell it has gained enough speed by looking at the meter on the right-hand side of the screen that tells you when you can take off. Just pull the yoke (control wheel), found at the bottom right-hand side of the screen, down and you will take off.
If you pull the thrust lever down, the airplane will decelerate, even in the air. While in the air, you can control the direction in which the airplane can go using the yoke. I must admit, this was difficult the first few times I tried it, but by the third time, the plane got a lot easier to control.
Fly to Different Airports Around the World
The objective of each level in Airplane Fly 3D is to fly from one international airport to another. There is no story, so I usually imagined that there are passengers in your plane. Anyway, to navigate to another airport, you have to fly through various checkpoints scattered throughout the airspace. Once you hit the final checkpoint, you will be told to land the plane, which will complete the level.
Passing through the checkpoints offers a challenge, and can be tough and nail-biting trying to hit those checkpoints. This requires you to think of the best tactics. Fly too fast and you could miss it. Fly too slow and you could run out of fuel. Oh, and that’s the other thing, you have a limited amount of fuel to get from one airport to another. And you have to be quick and methodical because the fuel drains fast.
When you complete the levels, you will get money for your troubles. This can be used to purchase a variety of different aircraft to fly through the skies. Trust me, no two planes are alike, and you will want to unlock them all and give them a spin.
Airplane Fly 3D is a fun flight simulator that offers enough to keep you playing for a long time. Plus, the variety in planes is a welcome addition that compels you to grind for money to purchase a shiny new aircraft. For lovers of flying simulators, this game is a no-brainer. And even if you are not a fan, the game is worth checking out.
