Best flight simulators on iOS

Love to fly on airplanes? Then this collection is for you.

1. X-Plane 10

Mobile version of the legendary flight simulator X-Plane, familiar to every fan of virtual aviation. The simulator is quite accurately conveyed the basic process control. This is not an arcade game – flying tail first will not work. Aerobatics, though complicated, but after a while, you get used to.

To manage the available Cessna 172SP aircraft, Airbus A320, F-4 Phantom II, F-22 Raptor and others. List of aircraft solid, especially considering the fact that every Board is well detailed.

The app is free, but has numerous in-app purchases for each plane will have to pay separately. Before purchasing I recommend to make a trial flight.

2. Infinite Flight

One of the best flight simulators in the App Store. The highest realism allows you to feel like a real pilot. At first glance it may seem that to deal with the numerous “levers” of control is unrealistic, but it is not so. Spend a little time and you’ll easily understand what you need to choose a vertical speed and which beacons it is better to go to one or the other airport. By the way, there is a brief introductory course.

The simulator is available on 31 aircraft model, including the legendary Airbus A380, on which you will be able to fly around all 10 regions of the game and to visit a virtual copy of the largest airports in the world.

3. Aerofly 2 Flight Simulator

In my opinion, this is the coolest simulator in the App Store. It combines two chips of the previous applications. 50000 square miles there are 70 airports just repeating real. For example, you can admire the Golden gate bridge in San Francisco or depart from the airport Palo Alto.

Realistic physics of the game are complemented perfectly detailed 3D models of the cockpits of manned aircraft. All the screens display real-time information, while the levers change position depending on the conditions you specify. Available the school where they can get training in all the basics of managing aircraft.

By buying the application, you get access to 6 aircraft, including passenger LearJet 45 the fighter-bomber F-18. Want more serious? No problem – pay 169. and I get medium-range Airbus A320, but for 219 rubles – double-Decker Boeing 747-400.

4. Extreme Landings

It’s certainly not a simulator (physics), however, do not include this application in the compilation was impossible. Basically the point of the game – out of critical situations that may arise in flight. The immediate landing, engine failure or altimeter – all available in more than 36 missions and 216 jobs.

The hallmark of Extreme Landings from previous applications is the availability of detailed settings of the flight. For example, you can control each engine, including start, stop, and even firefighting. Also, there is the possibility to control the fuel tanks – with the help of which you can clear the balance (by dropping or pumping fuel) in emergency situations.

5. Historical Landings

Historical fun arcade game with 12 missions in which you need to carry out takeoffs and landings on runways and aircraft carriers flying the route, to make rescue operations and much more.

In the free mode is available only 1 aircraft – single carrier-based fighter Chance Vought F4U Corsair. On it you can easily do the barrel, loop the loop and other elements of aerobatics. It is worth noting that the controls are quite simple (especially given the above applications), but the game has a tutorial mode.

6. Sky Gamblers Rise of Glory

Another arcade simulator, in which you can immerse yourself in the era of the First world war. In the game there are 12 interesting missions and 18 different cards with plains and mountain ranges. You will not be bored.

As for equipment, she’ll be all right – you can fly on some of the legends of aviation, as Ilya Muromets, Fokker DR1, Sopwith Triplane and others. There are 10 models of real existing aircraft.

7. Air Traffic Control 2D

The app also is a simulator, not flight, and the Work Manager. I think everything is so easy? As it is not so! Try to organize the movement of many aircraft so that no one crashed.

Beware, the game is very addictive – once I was stuck on it for 2 hours.

8. Airport CEO

Airport CEO is a 2D tycoon and management game in development for PC and Mac where you take a seat as the CEO of your own airport. You will build the airport’s infrastructure with everything from runways and taxiways, gates and tarmac to constructing terminals with check-in, security, restaurants, and shopping.
