“Best ATC-style game yet” ~ FlightGlobal.com
APP (Approach) Control is air traffic control as realistic as it gets, from the comfort of your iPhone or iPad. Are you as good as you think you are? Challenge yourself. Uses REAL airport layouts and detailed features for as realistic gameplay as possible.
You are an air traffic controller in the Approach radar room of a busy airport. Command planes to adjust their headings, altitudes and speeds and guide them to their final approach fix or exit point at the requested altitude. But be careful! You must always maintain Air Traffic rules: a 3-mile lateral or a 1000 feet vertical separation, just like in real air traffic control services. The more planes you safely land, the faster they go- how long can you keep it up?
A realistic ATC app to run on your phone - test your Approach skills anytime, anywhere. No ads, and a free Worldwide Leaderboard – compare your scores. Can you beat the best of them?
Best of all, REALISTIC FEATURES:
- Control the headings, altitudes and speeds of planes
- Real-life rules of always maintaining a minimum of a 3-mile lateral or a 1000-feet vertical separation of aircraft
- Uses the REAL layouts of international airports
- Short term conflict alerts
- Speed vectors
- History trail
- Label schemes
CAUTION TO NON-ATC PLAYERS: this is an as-close-to-reality as it gets air traffic control game. You may have difficulty if you have no experience with realistic air traffic control. Think of it as training- good luck! This Air Traffic Control simulation app is meant for real air traffic controllers who can't get enough, aviation enthusiasts, students, pilots and anyone with an interest in testing their skills in a realistic ATC environment.

You get the idea
I like this game, not sure where they get these flight strips with airlines, I have never seen at MSP I know its probably the best you can do, also one of biggest issues I have is you cant land 2 airplanes at the same time, its a real world fact that many airports have parallel runways, I was landing a plane on runway 35 and one on 30L at MSP and I lost because I failed to keep the 3 mile separation, this is a real situation and how can you push tin if you cant even have 2 planes landing at he same time, I am sure it wouldn't be hard for the program to ignore when 2 planes are on the ILS approach so this option works, but besides the fake flights and aircraft used its a pretty fun game
It's a fantastic game, best in terms of scenarios, types and parameters being able to be controlled. I easily spend hours playing this game it just doesn't stop.
BUT, I have no idea how to get help if any. I leave the game for too long browsing the web, I don't close it, it dumps the memory when I go back and lose all of what I had going. The app apparently can't handle itself even with 128GB of storage on the device which is more than half free and no support from the developer. I'd love to change my review, love the game but, good luck, not like it can keep track of your game.
Lots to love, things to hate...
The big positives: Lots of airports, some better than others, granted. Very engaging game play. It's a good simulation overall. Editor available to create and upload your own airports.
The negatives: 100% perfect pilots, they never miss a command. ILS approaches can be initiated from impossible approach vectors. Aircraft types assigned to runways they could never land on. Airlines/airplanes landing at any given airport are always the same, regardless of geographical location.
I'm picky, but I do enjoy the game.
