A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
There are no levels to achieve, no equipment upgrades and no opponents, just planeloads of passengers circling the airport.

To reach the tutorial you have to tap past a full-screen ad for another Firemint game, Real Racing.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the goal of this cute game is to guide small animated planes safely onto a runway. The inevitable mid-air collisions are loud but not too scary.
Is It Any Good?
Don't let the line drawings fool you. Flight Control is entertaining and highly addictive. Bring flights in safely by drawing a path with your finger from the plane to the runway. When planes multiply from all directions don't choke or they'll crash with a sound like trash cans being kicked over. Success is rewarded with polite applause and a "refreshing beverage" served by a stewardess dressed in a retro 50s uniform.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
