Our take

As far as plane simulators go, this one gets an average rating. There are no missions to complete or tasks in the free version; you need to pay to upgrade.

Should you download it?

Yes. If you are happy with a simple aviation sim, this is perfect for you. There are limited features, and you may find yourself looking for something more. If you enjoy your experience flying over The Aloha State, then you should consider the full version.
