Touch down in the tropics and transport freight between twelve exotic islands in more than a hundred exciting missions. On each of those twelve islands new missions will be waiting for you. Up and coming freight pilots such as yourself can choose from many different jobs including both lucrative and risky missions. Each island comes with its own airstrip for players to start from and land on. They also act as a hub for getting new transport jobs. Stopovers are possible at three basic airfields, where you can also Park your planes in your three personal hangars and refuel them. To complete missions as good as possible you can chose from three different planes with different characteristics you can boost using upgrades for speed, sturdiness or fuel capacity. And thanks to the game's open-ended gameplay, the fun just never stops!

However a greater disappointment is what this PS4 game promised... a non- combat platform! I’m 75 yers old, and I don’t want to revisit old war scenarios, nor do I want to fly MAC I aircraft. There is an element of humor in this game; you can deliver cases of soda pop to out Islands if you can access The Chart! Please either Thrustmaster, or Island Flight Simulator fix this?
I have mastered landing on short strips, but there is no toggle for flaps; you the pilot have to carefully monitor airspeed and throttle ( keep percentage of power at 20% until final flare, then zero% and O on throttle side is your break. The triangle then offers a circle which is the pick up area for cargo.
The islands themselves are quite beautiful, with challenging short strips. The price for this game is excellent, the premis is terrific, the “ illegal cargo” deliveries sounds intreaging, but just too many buttons on the Thrustmaster are missing or inoperable.
Can’t help but think the developers just gave up on tweaking this game? Please Island Flight, bring out I. F. 2 ! And Thrustmaster, I need some compatibility as well!
1. There are no flaps on the plane, so if you are coming in for a landing high you can't increase your rate of descent without increasing airspeed.
2. There is no trim, so you can't maintain level flight at a particular airspeed.
3. Fuel rate of consumption seems to be the same regardless of throttle setting.
What I end up doing is climbing to max altitude (1,000 Meters on the 1st plane you are given) at which point your engine will stop. I then glide to conserve fuel until I'm at about 200 Meters, turn on the engine and repeat the process. I find I need to do this if I want to make a profit on the trip. Sometimes, all the deliveries you are offered only pay $200 which if your engine is running all the time it won't cover the cost to refuel before your next pick-up and delivery mission.
Update: I changed my rating from 3 stars to 2 stars. I finally earned enough money to buy a better plane (There are 3 total that you can acquire.) which allows you to fly to Islands further away but the game crashes half way to the next Island I have to do a pick-up. So, that's as far as you can go in the game, until they fix that bug!
