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.
Very minor tweaks here just to keep all of our apps absolutely bug-free and perfect:
Thermals are operative! They were not functional in previous releases, but are now working perfectly.
All flight controls now move visually on all planes… Some flight controls did not deflect visually on some planes in previous versions.
If you have any problems with any of the Laminar Research apps, email info@X-Plane.com, and we will get any issues addressed promptly! Our apps must be perfect, and we will be sure to keep them that way!
