It is easy to fall in love with the Rortos Flight Engine for mobile phones –after all, it serves as the foundation for some of the best flight simulation experiences one can have on a mobile device. And this brings us to the surprisingly amazing F18 Carrier Landing II Pro, sure that is a bit of a mouthful to say, but the title does state exactly what it is: you can do simulated landings on carriers with an F18.
What the title does not mention is that there are also other planes in the game, and a wide range of variety when it comes to weather and time. Can you imagine having to land on a carrier in the dark of the night and with stormy weather severely hampening your visibility? If that sounds like the kind of challenge you will like, then know that F18 Carrier Landing 2 Pro is the kind of game that delivers it.

As the title suggests, this game is not your typical plane simulation game. There are no enemy targets, to crazy missile avoidance maneuvers to perform, and no escort targets to protect. Mayday Emergency Landing turns players into a pilot of a commercial airline in charge of only one thing: passenger safety during emergency landing situations. The game trims out any unnecessary bits from takeoff to the duration of the flight and instead tosses gamers straight into the meat of the action: the approach to the landing strip.
Expect intense emergency situations ranging from severe mechanical problems to dangerous weather conditions. Visibility, control, and presence of mind all come into play as players must work out the best ways of being able to land a plane in all sorts of conditions without causing any harm to the passengers. With dozens of missions to play and all sorts of potential risks making each landing more difficult than the last, this game has plenty to offer anyone who wants to take on the challenge of emergency plane landings.

If you ever wondered what the difference was between an arcade style game and an actual flight simulator, then Infinite Flight Simulator is a game that will show you where the definitive line is. Despite the incredibly limited capabilities and user input options of a mobile device, this app manages to find a way to deliver a gratuitous and engaging flight simulation for the mobile platform as it manages to combine excellent visual flair with realistic plane physics, a large array of aircraft to choose from, and continuous support from developers.
Infinite Flight Simulator boasts of having more than 30 planes, spectacular realtime lighting effects, and customizable gameplay. Whether you are a hardcore flightsim player or just someone who wants to see what the fuss is about, this game is a very worthwhile purchase. The best part of all is the fact that it actually manages to make the tilt controls usable –something many other flying games fail to achieve.

Flying an RC is not as easy as veteran users make it seem. There are already plenty of things that people need to know about flying, and being able to control a small plane in flight when you are several dozen meters away from it takes plenty of skill when it comes to making it perform maneuvers and actually getting it to land safely on the ground. Absolute RC Plane Sim manages to recreate the feel of flying an RC plane without having to cost people plenty of cast (which will happen if you end up crashing it to the ground).
For those with plenty of experience using RC planes and helicopters, this mobile app works great beyond the for-practice application. It actually allows users to train flying in strong weather conditions, with different types of RC units, and best of all, trying out complex maneuvers that are too risky to try out in real life.
