In Airport Madness 3D you are an air traffic controller, managing airplanes as they travel to and from major international airports. Move airplanes as quickly as possible while keeping the skies and runways safe from midair collisions. You are the last line of defense against disaster!

Great but one giant problem

Love the game, best one yet if a major flaw is fixed. Arrivals keep randomly changing to different runways after I've specifically assigned one. A given plane changes its own mind 3-6 times just getting around the pattern! As soon as I fix a couple, it dominoes others - ridiculous! Penalizing us for having a plan is contrary to the spirit of the game. Also, aircraft in some directions can be told go-around way sooner than other arrival directions, at least after you juggle their runway assignment on purpose - ?? Real life ATC can kick out non-compliant planes in any direction.

Great game!

Occasionally crashes randomly when playing on 12.0.1. When traffic rate is at 10 it’s inconsistent sometimes on how many planes come. Some games you get what you would expect at a 10 rate, sometimes planes arrive less frequently and it feels like the rate is 6 but it says 10. This is when playing the time challenges or move 100.

It is a basic concept. Keep the planes landing and taking off. But it is done so, so amazing well. Absolutely love it. Worth every penny. Please keep the updates coming!!
