About this game

User Manual: http://www.maxhirn.at/web/RadarContact_UserManual.pdf

NEW: Version 6.3 features a new airport and turn direction assignments! For other news see the "New Features" section below.
See the help section in the app for details.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: If the speech output of "non-native-english" airlines like Lufthansa, Alitalia etc. sounds strange, please make sure you have all needed languages (French, German, Italian) installed: Settings -> Language & Input -> Text-to-Speech Output -> Settings -> Install voice data

IMPORTANT: This app may be incompatible with the app "Launcher Pro". If it should crash after using "Launcher Pro", try starting RadarContact from the normal Android home screen.
Furthermore, if your device does not support Open GL ES 2 or is using a custom rom, it is likely that the app will not run.

This is more a simulation than an arcade game. However, you will find every information required in the help section so you can try being an air traffic controller even without previous aviation knowledge!

Important Note: This application is optimized for tablets! It should run on any screen size and resolution. On small screens however, usability may be restricted. Please try the free trial version before if in doubt. It is restricted to 15 aircraft per session and one airport.

Excellent Smiulator. but in game saving a level is so difficult. u have to exit the game and again enter the game Good job again! I'm a professional Pilot for 16 years & played the " Radar Contact " for hours ! & really upgraded my vision in flight field. Haven't seen better ATC Simulator since, thanks for the new app, will be so grateful if these apps be available in ios mode for free, because unfortunate we've got lots of issues with paying online Again many thanks for your generosity Max !

In game menu has a bug to where you can't exit it. I've played it before and never had that problem. Also wish the terrain levels were not there to start. It's hard to line up planes.

Great, except with one very annoying bug(?) feature. On departure, you have to wait for the plane to reach within 400ft of the airport mva before vectoring.
