You are an air traffic controller. Bring the planes in safely.
To start the game, press a number from 1 to 4. This will determine the difficulty. If you choose 1, planes will appear every 8 seconds, 2 every 16 seconds, 3 every 24 seconds and 4 every 32 seconds.
To control a plane, press the letter corrosponding to its designation. When you are controlling a plane, its information will highlight white, the plane will highlight read and its current heading an altitude will appear in the information line in yellow.
To tell a plane to climb or descend use the up and down arrow.
To tell a plane to turn left or right, use the left and right arrow.
To issue the order press the control(CTRL) key.
You can move the orders as much as you want to set up correctly, because the plane will not follow the orders until you press the CTRL key.
Once you give your orders, if there is an altitude change, the plane will begin climbing or descending immediately.
If a turn order is issued, planes will only execute turns when the reach a dot on the playfield. It takes all planes 1 mile to change their altitude by 1000 feet.
If you issue a new order, the previous order will be cancelled.
That is the only difference. It will still take 1 mile to change altitude by 1000 feet, but since a Concorde can fly 1 mile in 8 seconds, it will also change altitude by 1000 feet in 8 seconds. Where a Cesna will do the same in 32 seconds.
You can speed things up at any time by holding down the space bar. This will accelerate time by a factor of 4. As soon as you let go of the space bar, time will return to normal.
Pressing ESC at any time will exit the game.
