It’s one of the only, but it’s also still one of the best. X-Plane for iPad [$9.99] is a super serious flight simulation game that recreates just about any experience. You can fly or land helicopters, streak across the sky in jets, bumble around in 747s, or even take it to space in a NASA ship. We’ve been playing the game off and on since its debut in 2010 because, simply, it’s just that good.

Updates for X-Plane seemed to have stopped. We’ll be contacting the creators shortly to ask about any possible plans for content down the road. Stay tuned!
