Yes! It is very important to us to offer our customers a fair and transparent in-app purchase model. You can unlock every airplane and mission yourself, without having to invest real money. We only offer you the purchase of Coins and Bonus Miles in order to buy new planes or unlock missions faster.
Coins are the games in-game currency. You receive Coins for every mission you play and for each of your fleet's flights on the world map. You can use Coins to buy new airplanes or to upgrade your aircraft.
Experience points (XP) represent the experience you gain with each flight (apart from in free flight mode). The more missions you fly, the more XP you'll receive. Once you have collected enough XP, your pilot license will level up, unlocking new missions.
You need Bonus Miles to be able to perform flights with your airplane fleet. The greater the distance between airports, the longer the flight lasts, and so the more Bonus Miles you require. You receive Bonus Miles in each mission you fly. If you don't have enough, you can buy different sized packs of Bonus Miles in the shop.
You can visit the shop in the main menu, where you can purchase Coins that can be used to buy airplanes in the game. There are several Coin packs to choose from.
We recommend that you play the tutorial missions. Here you will learn how to fly, steer, take off and land in Take Off – The Flight Simulator. You will also be instructed on how to use the autopilot, what mission markers are and how to fly through them to complete missions successfully. Additionally, you will learn how to buy airplanes in the hangar and how to improve your planes' performance.
You will learn how to establish an airline, expand your fleet and send your planes around the world later in the game.
A tip: If you don't like the default controls, you can change them in the options menu and choose between tilt controls, virtual joystick or slider controls. You can change this setting in the options menu at any time.
If you don't like the default controls, you can change them in the options menu and choose between tilt controls, virtual joystick or slider controls. You can change this setting in the options menu at any time. You can reach the options menu during a mission via the pause button in the top-left corner of the screen. Then tap on Options and then on Control Settings.
In the main menu you have the following options:
Additionally, you can open the options and a list of achievements Free flight: Starts a free flight on Hawaii Hangar: Shows you the planes you own in the game. You can also buy new planes, carry out upgrades or choose a different skin. Campaign: Starts the campaign menu, where you can select and start missions. World map: Starts international flights, in which you can build your own airline. Shop: Opens the shop, where you can buy Coin packs and Bonus Miles.
In the main menu you have the following options:
The displays at the top of the main menu mean (from left to right):
You can also improve a plane's performance data once it belongs to you. To do so, tap on one of the buttons (e.g. "Engine Power") and purchase another performance level. Note that you must have enough Coins in your virtual account to do this. You can buy a total of three performance levels for each ability/capacity. Once you have purchased a performance level, the green bar will extend.
There are three different skin that can be applied to each plane. If you want to change the skin, tap on the Skin button on the left side of the hangar menu screen. An arrow graphic will now be displayed beneath the plane. Tap left or right to view the different skins. If you want to apply a skin to your plane, tap on the paintbrush icon. Note that you have to buy skins and can only afford them if you have enough Coins in your virtual account.
To buy a new plane, tap on Hangar in the main menu. In the lower area of the hangar menu, you will see all the planes that are available in the game. Swipe left or right to view all the planes. Planes that you don't yet own are shown in black. Now if you tap on the "Buy” button, the plane will become visible at the bottom. Once you have purchased the plane, it'll then be available for flights in missions, free flight mode and on the world map (depending on the type of airplane).
Of course, you can only buy a new plane if you have enough Coins in your account. You can see how many Coins are available to you in the top-left corner of the hangar menu. In the top-right, you will see how much the plane costs. If you don't have enough Coins in your account, you will first have to fly and complete more missions. If this takes too long for you, you can buy Coin packs in the shop.
Do you just want to take a pleasant flight over the Hawaiian islands? In free flight you can simply choose a plane and take off. You can only do this, however, with a plane you already own. You can, however, also buy a plane in free flight mode if there are enough Coins in your account. Here are a few words on how to do this:
Once you have selected a plane, simply tap on "Take off!" to start the takeoff process. In free flight mode, you always start at Honolulu airport, on the island of O'ahu. From there, you can fly to all eight of the main Hawaiian islands, and even land on most of them.
In the campaign menu, you will find the missions that you can play in the game. By playing and completing missions, you will collect experience points and Coins. Once you have collected a certain amount of experience points, you will increase a level and new missions will be unlocked. You can use Coins to buy new planes, and new upgrades and skins for the planes.
The campaign is divided into five categories:
Several missions are available in each category. The higher the level, the greater the difficulty. The better you complete the missions, the bigger your reward will be. If you have completed a mission with a bronze rating, for example, you can fly it again to achieve silver or gold, and to collect more Coins, experience points and Bonus Miles. Light Aircraft Personal Aircraft Business Aircraft Regional Airliners Jet Airliners
Tap on Campaign in the main menu and then select a mission in the category of your choice. You can only start missions that have been unlocked. Now choose a plane that you want to fly in the mission. You can only select planes that match the category and that you own. Tap on "Take off!" to start the mission.
You have three options to control your plane. You can select and change them in the options menu:
Depending on the controls you choose, you will find the thrust slider on the left or right of the screen. Tap it and drag it up to accelerate the plane, or drag the thrust pedal down to reduce engine power.
The plane can be steered either with the virtual joystick or with the sliders, depending on the setting you chose. Drag the virtual joystick up or down to gain altitude or to descend, or move the sliders up and down. Drag the virtual joystick left or right, or move the slider left or right to change the flight path. Don't forget that the plane also has a rudder and can also be steered using that. The rudder is also great for making sharp turns. It is controlled using the rudder joystick in the bottom-right of the screen.
To brake the plane on the ground, tap on the red brake icon in the bottom-left of the screen. You can also use it to reduce your speed during flight. Tilt controls: Tilt your tablet or phone left and right or forward and backward to change flight path or to climb or descend. Slider controls: Drag the slider at the bottom-left of your screen left or right to steer in that direction. The farther you pull the slider, the stronger your plane's steering will be. Drag the thrust slider on the left side of the screen up or down to increase or decrease the power of the engines. Joystick controls: Drag the virtual joystick found on the left of the screen to the left or right to change the flight path, or up or down to change the altitude. Drag the thrust slider on the right side of the screen up or down to increase or decrease the power of the engines.
Tap on the map icon and a map of Hawaii will be shown. All the airports in Hawaii that you can fly to are marked on this map. The position and flight path are marked with a yellow airplane icon, and your next checkpoint is marked with a green circle.
If you tap on the time icon, you will fly twice as fast. Tap on the time icon again and you will continue flying at normal speed. This feature is useful if you have to cover long distances. But remember that you won't be able to control your plane as precisely at double speed. So, if you have to perform a difficult flight maneuver during a mission, think carefully about whether you should perform it at normal speed.
If you get lost during a mission and can't see any markers to fly to, look for a yellow arrow at the edge of the screen. The arrow shows in which direction you have to fly to reach the next marker.
Once you have collected enough experience points from level 10, you can enter the international aviation business and start your own airline. Buy your first plane for your fleet and transport your passengers to destinations all over the world. Once you have started making big money, you can invest in a larger plane so you can transport more passengers and reach more distant destinations.
When you first start international flights, you can only afford smaller planes, which have a small range. If an airport is highlighted red, this means that you cannot reach the airport with the selected plane as its range is too small. You won't be able to select the airport as your destination, but will have to select another flight destination within the range of your plane.
