JD and I have been enjoying a free flight simulator app on the iPad for a couple of weeks now. You can earn in-game money by completing ever more difficult missions and then spend your accumulated wealth on larger and more complex aircraft. We started with a Cessna, began to make real progress once we earned a Lear Jet and then progressed through glider, spitfire, military jet, stealth bomber and Boeing 747. I actually managed to land the 747 on an aircraft carrier this other day - technically impossible (due to the high approach speed, short runway and wide wingspan) but after about 50 attempts I finally did it. Little things...!
