This is X-Plane-Airliner, a new version of X-Plane for the iPhone that simulates Airliners and the relatively long-range, instrument-capable flying that they do.
X-Plane-Airliner comes with:
The Boeing 777: The gold standard for modern airliner design and efficiency.
The Boeing 747: The big double-decker 4-engine classic Liner of the sky.
The Airbus A-380: The largest airplane in the world, with fly-by-wire controls.
The Boeing 787: The new carbon-fiber, high-bypass, ultra-efficient harbinger of the next wave of airline travel.
The MD-80: A well-known twin-engine pusher workhouse referred to by pilots as the 'Mad Dog'
The TriStar: A nice-flying older 3-engine bird that, while reliable, was retired for being a bit expensive to operate.
As well, X-Plane Airliner gives you control of throttle, flaps, speedbrakes, and trim, giving you much more control over these incredible machines than you can get in the regular X-Plane for iPhone.
In addition to the additional flight controls, the cockpit is a full glass EFIS system, with airspeed, heading, altitude, vertical speed, Mach number, DME, and HSI with localizer and glideslope displayed in the same manner as the real airliners. As well, a moving map glass display gives you complete situational awareness as you fly, as you find in the real airliners.
The regular X-Plane for iphone has 3 airports and 4 NAVAIDs, and a flight region of about 60 by 60 miles. With X-Plane-Airliner, you get 42 NAVAIDs, 98 airports, and about 60 by 180 miles to fly in in the default scenery area! That default flight region in X-Plane Airliner spans from San Diego clear up to Edwards Air Force Base! This large flying area, combined with the 98 airports and 42 NAVAIDs, lets you practice relatively longer flights in any weather, with glass-cockpit 'EFIS' instrumentation and moving maps in the cockpit to make it all easy as you fly the Big Birds across the scenic terrain of Southern California, enjoying the view if you like to do that, or in hardball IFR conditions, using the glass instrumentation to fly the airliners down to minimums in clouds and fog and turbulence at night... or anything in between. As well, a handful of other flying areas are available to try your skills in various different parts of the world!
This is by far the most powerful app we have released for the iPhone, and we are making it available cheap for now so that everyone can get it!
What's New in Version 9.75
We have added the 737 back here, as people have requested!
Really fun to play and mess around on multiplayer flying passenger jets into each other. It runs really smoothly on my iPod and the graphics are great. You are limited with the flying space and locations but It doesn't matter a tall. It would be great to see some wider ranges of locations added and a main menu and more flight control options, But overall this game is definately worth the money and is one of the best flight simulators for iPods out there! Also, the choice of planes is well thought out.
This is a good game
I think this is a very good game and is worth every Penney (I hope I spelt it right). I would rate it 5 stars if there were some new updates such as:
To fly around the world (if not possible then every one would like to be able to fly around America).
To be able to chose the airline for your plane.
Here are some planes that should be added to this game:
I know this is a lot of things to ask for but having these planes would be very very good and this would also make many other's day.
I got this game a couple of days ago and I loved it straight away I found it easy to control the plane after a couple if goes on it now all I need to do us try to land it now if I can find a run way to land that baby on it has got really good graphics it looks so real when I went to Portugal and I played it at was almost real the game so good buy it now worth the money I tell u
