Now THIS is a fun app.
Here is the name of the game: Hop in any of the 6 jets and warbirds that come with the app and go fly an airshow routine.
For your first flight, you will want to do a VERY simple routine, trust us.
Then, when done, go to the settings screen and hit the SAVE FLIGHT button at the bottom.
The flight you just flew is saved to your pd or phone.
Then, select take-off at that airport again and you will see another plane sitting there on the runway, ready to fly!
That plane will fly the exact routine that you just flew… and now you will fly formation with him through the airshow routine!
This is much harder than it sounds, because the flight dynamics are realistic, and airshow flying is among the most challenging in the world.
If you can hold formation all the way through the flight, right down to landing, then you will get a score based on how tightly you held formation.
Can you fly an amazing airshow routine in an F-15, and then do it again IN FORMATION?
The challenge is EXTREME. We can promise you that.
What's New in Version 9.75
Two new planes: F-16 Falcon and P-40 Warhawk. Both of these birds are nice refinements of the state of the art of their time. The Warhawk was a nice-flying, intimidating, well-balanced, powerful machine for it's time, just like the F-16.
But all of the planes with a propeller lurch to the left when they are taking off. And when I save a flight, there isn't a second plane. There should be a way to have more than one other plane. You should be able to save more than one flight and have six planes. Four of them would fly together, and two would fly separately. And you could choose which plane you are. So please update and it would be really cool if you can put in my idea. :) Thanks
Great update, but just a little note?!!!
The flight controls are a little sketchy on the F16, and the P40. I have all,(yes I said all) of your apps and the P40, and F16 controls need some tweeking. But I give it 5 stars because you deserve it... Great Work!!!

I have a suggestion and that is that the air show version of x-plane should have more appropriate aircraft like a Pitt Special, a Mooney, a Steerman, .etc
