Kids say (2 ):

Ratcheting down the difficulty of the typical flight simulator would seem to be an effective way of broadening this app's audience. But, rather than focusing on the thrill of flight, AIRPLANE! sucks the fun out of the process, making landings nearly impossible and the actual flights monotonous. The scenery rarely changes, which is particularly noticeable when your flights are thousands of miles -- meaning you'll stare at the screen for several minutes.

That said, the visuals are fairly well done (if not diverse), and, although, players won't get any real knowledge about what it's like to fly a plane, the app could spark real interest.

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.
