Publisher's description - Approach Control 1.0
Approach Control is a highly realistic air traffic control simulation, designed by real world air traffic controllers. It uses authentic pilot voices.
This app is designed to give aviation enthusiasts a taste of the world`s greatest job. The radar behavior in this app is identical to that of real-world air traffic control radar screens, utilizing a 3-second sweep that air traffic controllers are accustomed to. Much work has been done to make such a complex job fit inside the palm of your hand.
You are the approach controller whose job is to manage arriving passenger jets at various busy airports. Establish arriving aircraft onto `final approach` as safely and efficiently as possible. As in the real world of ATC, you must walk a very fine line between being cautious and being expeditious. A top notch air traffic controller knows how to bring planes in `tight`, without breaking the `three mile rule`.
Keep all aircraft at least THREE MILES apart or at least 1000 FEET VERTICALLY apart. That`s your job in a nutshell! Earn extra points by establishing the planes onto final approach without extra wasted space.
Air traffic controlling is achieved by assigning a mixture of three things: HEADING, SPEED, and ALTITUDE. Use these three tools to achieve safety and efficiency.
A successful air traffic controller must remain CALM, COOL and COLLECTED, known as the `three C`s`. Who knows, you may one day use these skills and apply for a real ATC job! Find out why real-world air traffic controllers have nerves of steel.
