Become a pilot and conquer the skies! Flight Pilot Simulator 3D has a pretty self-explanatory name. In this game, you pilot various jets accomplishing different tasks. Sometimes you’ll be racing, sometimes you’ll be firefighting, who knows! We’ll help you become an ace pilot with our Flight Pilot Simulator 3D cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide!
1. Aim for the stars!
Each level has a set coin bonus for you to earn, but you’ll only get it if you manage to get all three stars. You get one for simply completing the level, another for finding the hidden star in the level, and the last one for not retrying from a checkpoint. These are all pretty easy conditions to meet, considering the stars are usually sitting in plain sight, and if you end up screwing up the mission you can just restart from the beginning to try again instead of restarting from the checkpoint.
2. Need coins? Try Free Flight!
In order to advance to the next set of levels, you need to complete the Special mission of each rank. These missions require you to purchase an airplane made specifically for the mission. If you’re short of coins and you’ve already done the regular levels, try out Free Flight mode. This mode is exactly what it sounds like: you get to fly around the world at your own pace! There are hot air balloons flying around, and if you collect one, you’ll earn around 1000 coins. On top of that, you can also take on contracts, which are essentially mini missions. Check your radar – there will be colored blips around the world. Follow the radar to one, land at the airport, and you take on a contract.
Contracts pay out differently and have different distances, so choose the one you’re willing to do. Sometimes you’ll need to rescue someone, sometimes you’ll race. They’re all color coded to check the radar to make sure you’re going towards the one you want to do. Depending on how far away the mission objective is from the airport, the rewards can vary from 1000 to 3000 coins, sometimes even higher!
3. Use the speed up button!
At the top right corner of the screen during gameplay, you’ll see a button that says “1x”. This is the current speed the game is running at. If you tap it, it’ll change to 2x, and the game will be at double speed. Your starting plane has an extremely low max speed stat, so this is very useful until you can afford your next plane. Even then, if you need to travel a long distance, this is great for reducing time spent!
4. Use your plane’s brakes and landing gear when necessary!
After you take off successfully, it’s best to raise your landing gears (If applicable). When you have your landing gears out, it’s easier to – you guessed it – land, but your maximum speed is reduced when they’re out, so you shouldn’t keep them out when you’re flying. When you come back in for a landing, be sure to enable your brakes once you’re on the ground. This will ensure you stop faster than usual.
If at anytime your plane begins to control oddly, you can pause the game and calibrate your iDevice. Hold your device in the neutral position, then tap the calibrate button. This will set your gyroscope center point to your device’s current position.
