  • This is not a flight simulator

    by Zerosarefun

    This is a taxiway simulator. You spend 80% of your time on the ground moving at snail speed stopping constantly for other planes, also moving at snail speed. There are no full flights apparently, unless they come later in the game, but I’ve been playing for a week so if they are in there somewhere it takes far to long to be accessible. When you do get into the air, you have seemingly reasonless engine blow outs constantly, (usually when you’re about 2 seconds from landing, which makes the landing unsalvageable, resulting in a wreck) when the landing gear fails (which is fairly rare, granted) you have very little hope of landing at all because they refuse to unlock no matter how many times you try to bypass the failure. Oh and devs, if you’re reading this i just had a waypoint marker transition in flight from 3,200 ft to 30,000 ft... directly above me. Let me tell how to aim a plane straight up and not stall out immediately. You can’t. And i failed the mission for incorrect flight path for the trying to circle up to the waypoint. With all these issues and missing components this game was not ready to be released yet.

  • Unplayable

    by Zxhrdvljdrinft

    The game is great for the first 5 levels. I’m at level 8 and it freezes on every other flight now. It happens right as I’m landing or reaching my waypoint so I don’t get the money and if it’s for another airline I have to wait another 30 minutes just to do another flight. I was just doing one for 6k which I needed for the next airplane and it just froze and the app crashed. I performed the most amazing maneuver after I was requested to land after taking off, forgot to lower the landing gear and had to circle around again, felt so accomplished once I landed, and then it freezes and crashes! I just did 10 flights and literally 7 of them froze. Even the ads play and then free so what’s the point of watching them if it doesn’t knock any time off? I make about 2 flights a day now. Should only take about another year to get to the next level at that pace... game is unplayable. Don’t bother downloading.

  • by A Google user

    Addicting. But it's a game. Kinda a simulator. You have to earn coins and stuff like a game. You have to level up to play any fun planes. You have to unlock planes.. And the pilots that pop up with advice get very annoying after a while. Like I know how to play the game now.. and recently it could not load when trying to open the app.

  • by Ynot Ng Pinas

    I can't find another way to earn money aside from the other airlines option while acquiring a new license, it says that I have to wait for it to finish or CHOOSE another plane. This sucks, please allow us to fly other planes while waiting for the license exam to come. This would have been better if you guys did that

  • Horrible simulator !

    by spaniard4evr

    Don’t waste your time and money..... Graphics are decent to great, that’s about it. The game is not realistic at all..... the control tower and the pilots contradict each other constantly, to get any great planes you have to pay money(trust me, I have paid a lot already) so I can attest to this. The weather is not realistic and when you are examining, there’s no instruction as to what we need to do. While on the tarmac, traffic control will make you taxi to the most far runway or gate possible, wasting tons of time...... That’s just some of the things that are wrong here!! Oh and when you contact customer service they tell you to do basic stuff and then never contact you again if your problem is not resolved. Too bad

  • Fun but annoying

    by joeseffb

    This game is fun. However it has a few quirks. First of all the biggest and worst issue is the game crashes all the time. With things being timed based it’s hard to get the game to reload and get back to it before a contract will expire. This game also emphasizes micro transactions which I hate. More people are willing to pay a couple bucks for a game if they don’t have stupid transactions. Also as others have posted the layouts for things seem strange. And it would also be helpful if you didn’t have that annoying guy pop up and say start you engine. When know you need to start an engine in order to make the plane go.

  • Needs work

    by Flyboy111

    iPhone X users, be warned there are buttons at the bottom by the swipe up that you have to hit as you advance that will then close the app. I can’t tolerate apps that don’t update to major devices a year plus still after release. Otherwise it’s got a lot of potential, many other users have stated good points of improvement... like how about not have a airliner taxi across the threshold every time we are at 300ft and still get a perfect score for landing. That isn’t realistic. If you want realist have an airliner lift off at the end of the runway when your 500 from touchdown or something to that affect.

  • Not realistic

    by scottttttyC

    To add to the litany of complaints about the constant emergencies and mechanical problems: Boeing states that fleet wide they experience landing gear failure 10 to 12 times a year. I also found statistics that engine failure occurs less than one time in one million flights. How often do they occur in game? We all know - you look at your plane sideways and it might explode. Some nonsense happens on the majority of flights. Seriously, it isn’t fun or interesting. It is just a distraction and boringly repetitive. And yes, you need free flight desperately so you can do whatever crazy thing you want just for the fun of it.

  • Subpar

    by Nicky nick the nickster

    The good news first, when you have actual missions the game play is rather entertaining however it can get repetitive. As for the bad news, you are constantly have to “test” for a new license because you are always upgrading to a better plan (the game forces you to upgrade.) Typically upgrading and having to “test” isn’t a big deal expect for the fact that you have nothing to do(literally) except watch adds to help pass the time. Seems like they started making a great game and halfway through they just gave up.

  • Not amazing at all.

    by SmiteMatter

    Barely a flight sim and mostly just a lot of waiting around to do something that takes a couple minutes. What are they that noting here? There are so many fun killing road blocks I don’t know where to begin? You can just fly, and have to go through tedious take offs or landings that get progressively dumber not harder. Lots of engine malfunctions .....oh boy...wow. All of the scenery is arbitrary and random lacking any feeling of authenticity whatsoever. The requirements to pay for your lessons and then be forced to wait and or pay again is beyond stupid. Oh my gawd just sell me the app.... anything but this crud. It’s just a cash grabbing waste of time poorly disguised as a flight sim or airline manager. RORTOS blew it again. It’s a real shame too....mobile desperately needs more legit flight sims, but all we ever get are pitiful freemium apps with so many built in limitations that end up cursing the app to permanent grounding. Booooooo!

  • Fun at first

    by Monde m

    Fun at first, but clearly the creator wanted a lot of money because this game is AD driven unless you spend a lot of money... also the taking off and landing gets old, they need to make a “free play” where you can choose what airport you want to depart from and what airport you want to land at... I’m sure down the road you get some longer routes but I’ve put an hour and thirty minutes in this game and I’m still just “taking off and landing”. This game could easily be a 5 star game if the problems I’ve stated were fixed.

  • HUGE amount of downtime (waiting)

    by T231543

    I really like this game. But it seems that I spend more time waiting for new contracts to come up before I can fly my own planes. I understand they’re trying to make money by having us watch videos (to reduce the downtime) but the wait periods are ridiculous. Otherwise, a really fun game Addition to my previous note: I’m on level 16 now and it’s just getting boring. You spent about $60k-$100k to get a new license and then can only make 3 flights before the routes close. Then you fly other airlines that only pay $300-$3500. That’s A LOT of flying to get $100k in mit net. In addition you only do landings and take offs. I’ve only had three full flights booked offered but they take 2-3 hours to play (not sure anyone has that kind of time). Could be a really awesome game with some modifications

  • Just another wait or pay game

    by underoath0902

    I can’t vouch for the gameplay past the first level because I deleted the app as soon as I realized it was a wait or pay-to-skip game. These games are plaguing the industry and I want nothing to do with them. I’m okay with DLC, paid-for apps, ads, and most other styles of earning money off a game. But don’t make me wait 5 minutes between levels or pay to skip that time. I just want to pass time waiting for my train. If you refuse to let your app fill that need without repeated payment, I’ll simply spend my time elsewhere.

  • Game blows likes the engine

    by Adub22

    The develop probably hates flying or trying to make people fear getting on a plane because every mission involves some sort of engine stall or blow out. My favorite is an engine blow out on your approach, seconds from landing, you got the plane down safely but the dumb dumb flight attendant pop up with a message “rough landing”. Not to mention with your busted up engine, you still need to navigate to your gate instead of being met by emergency crew cause you know, your freaking engine blew upon landing approach! Game is b.s...not worth your time or in game currency.

  • Kinda stuck here...

    by DrunkPanda6

    Ok so I was having quite a good time with this app until trying to obtain license D for the CRJ900. I have no idea how to complete it, the speed and altitude sensors are no problem for me as I’m able to get the landing gear down and land safely. But the problem is that the landing gear keep just ‘breaking’ when I land on the runway. They disappear every single time with a noise signifying that it broke. Then it crashes the plane and I end up losing the license. I even managed to break the gears and fly up again, trying to do the same procedure when there’s a malfunction with the gears but that doesn’t work. It says absolutely nothing about how to avoid this, I can’t go on the other runway, and I’m basically forced to skip the license and buy it with AC Credits instead. It’s really annoying, please fix it!

  • Very confused game

    by pmzdj

    1. The user interface is a travesty. It is extremely bizarre, disorganized, and unnecessarily complicated. The game itself is rather simplistic, but you wouldn’t know it trying to navigate the interface. 2. The missions, or whatever they are, are indescribably boring. Taxi for 5 minutes to get to a runway, take off, and then...mission over. What? What am I playing this for? Do we ever get to fly the aircraft, or is it just endless taxi missions? I have no idea where the high ratings for this game come from because it is a joke and an absolute chore to play.

  • INGIOCABILE / UNPLAYABLE

    by WillBeStudios

    Delusione totale, basta con questo orribile sistema di in app purchase. Preferirei pagare anche 10/15$ per il gioco completo invece he buttare via i soldi. Ingiocabile, siete diventati feccia come tutti. Apprezzavo i vostri titoli in passato. Adios! Total disappointment, this in-app purchase system make the game unplayable and unbelievably frustrating to play. I would willing to pay 10/15$ for an actual complete game, in this way the player will be obliged to spend (and waste) lot of real money. You became a bad company like most of others big brand here. I was used to like your past games and I was a vivid support. Well, not anymore! BYE!

  • Lots of Wasted Potential

    by A_Chicken_Once_Ate_A_Dolphin

    This game has beautiful graphics (for a mobile game), solid physics, and lots of nice planes. Unfortunately, the gameplay is hampered by incessant advertising, tedious amounts of taxiing, AI aircraft that only seem to exist to make you randomly stop on taxiways, random engine failures when you’re on the last leg of final, and extremely slow progression designed to lure you to purchase the in game cash. No thanks: I’d rather spend $80 on XPlane or Flight Simulator than this poorly executed game.

  • ABSOLUTE GARBAGE

    by spongebobislife

    I downloaded it thinking it would be fun when I went looking for something to do, the first time I tried to load it up it crashed, then a second try and it worked. The whole idea is great but poorly executed. These controls are hard to use when there is instructions popping up at the same time as your trying to not crash the plane. It might be more fun if the controls were easier to use for as of for now I just can’t stand this game. If I could give no stars I would.

  • It’s irritating

    by bosmali

    The game is pretty cool I like it but freaks out meaning by that it will freeze up when I turn my phone off it will freeze up when I land it will freeze up switch your plane it will freeze up and it will stay frozen the only week you can continue play if you uninstall the game and install it again but that’s getting irritating Every single time I had to do that if you guys can fix this game will be amazing

  • Great game... too bad it doesn’t load

    by Missy602

    My game freezes every 24 hours forcing me to un/reinstall to play it. Also since there’s no way to skip the intro tutorial I have to play through that every time I want to play the game. The game itself has good graphics and fairly simple control; with a decent amount of things to do for a free game. There is a lot of screen switching and might be difficult for people with smaller phones.

  • Just plain boring- flight engine now a MLM

    by Jimmbones

    SO much taxiing. So many incentive to pay real money. I just want to fly. I don’t want to be penalized with real money and have to watch advertisements to play. Tortoise used to be so exciting. Now torrid is just trying to make money. I miss the old exciting apps where you could create your own adventure and test the limits of the planes. But they aren’t innovating. Same algorithms, same graphics, but more restrictions. And then the taxiing. Over and over with the taxiing. Jesus. I’m deleting this game now.

  • Fun, but too difficult to move up without $$$$

    by Cecsix

    I love a lot about the game play, landing is especially fun, and I actually like the emergencies. I give the app two stars because of how it limits the number of routes that can be opened between levels. Like, I just want to play without spending a bunch of real money to buy planes and complete training. Am I missing something? I realize you need to encourage in app spending, but this is excessive. Also, I agree with the other reviewer regarding taxiing. Way too much game time is spent NOT FLYING. If one chooses to skip taxiing, the amount earned is greatly diminished. This game has so much potential, but I just achieved first officer rank, and now to buy the next plane I will have to shell out more cash. I’m done with it for now, until and if this is upgraded.

  • Make a commercial version

    by techtrader09

    This game is pretty decent. The problem is that they are shameless in the paywall extortion of a user. It just results in not enjoying the experience because it takes 12 hours to prepare something, unless you want to pay money. No thanks. Would be better making a reasonably priced pay app. This trend of apps to try and get a) ad revenue or b) frustrate you into paying is why I don’t download most.

  • Too many crashes to desktop

    by d1sp0

    Would be much better if it didn't crash to the desktop after every 1-3 exercises. As it is, I spend more time restarting than I do flying. And not to mention the lost time on the countdown timer. sometimes I’ll get almost all the way through the landing taxi and get a crash with no time left to restart and finish it again. Otherwise, fun little game.

    by Reinkejohn4

    how is this app rated so high?? Thousands of situations to handle? Create your own airline? After playing this app it sounds like false advertising to me. Where are the thousands of situations to handle? How do I create my own airline... This is actually a pretty decent sim game but landing and taking off only is stupid, lol... It would make more sense to have full flights in the game where you go from takeoff to landing The whole thing with only being able to simulate takeoffs and landings is dumb... It takes this awesome idea for a sim u have and just kills it This has potential to be a really great game, just needs some improving...

  • Why can’t I just fly? Why unlock more and more?

    by apeshave

    The game is good, really good I mean. But you know what I don’t get is as soon as I earn enough money, all the f*#king contracts are gone! And now I have to complete another training which gives me few more contracts. I understand when the game is based on something like karma, when you need to keep earning or there is some limit to which you can play but there is nothing as such in this game. You should technically be able to play as much as you want. If I see open contracts before attempting to fly one, why all of a sudden everything is gone? I understand you want people keep playing the game by unlocking the licenses and flying new planes but this is kind of killing the interest for me to play the game.

  • Won’t load

  • Too F2P

    by Captain Zesty

    Sometimes I just want to fly a plane. Most of the time, I’m waiting for timers on activities that I will complete in minutes, then have to wait for 2-3 times as long. Let me fly. Let me pick what I’m doing. I’d pay for things... planes, airports, routes, cosmetics... but this F2P timer mechanic kills the game by stopping you from actually PLAYING the game.

  • Really!?

    by One-Stop Shop

    I take on a full flight for a big payout. Stick with it for almost 3 hours. Only to have a gear malfunction on landing. Unrecoverable. I had a sneaking feeling that you’d pull something cheap like that to deny a big payday. The probability of an inflight emergency is way too high in this game (like every other flight). Don’t attempt the full flights that offer big money. They’ll cheat you out of it in the end. Thanks for wasting my time!

No more offers from other airlines to advance. You can “purchase” more credits for as much as $94.99 Ouch!!!!!!
