Welcome to Flight Odyssey pilot training! Here's all the basics you need to get up and running. If you already know some of it, feel free to click the following links and skip ahead.
The Throttle (Back to Top)
Maneuvering in the Air (Back to Top)
Your First Landing (Back to Top)
Options at the Runway (Back to Top)
Click the button on the left to instantly taxi to the left side of the runway, so you can take off towards the right. Or, click the button on the right to instantly taxi to the right side of the runway, so you can take off towards the left.
The door button will exit you from the game and take you to the menu, where you can view the instructions - which you're looking at right now!
Missions (Back to Top)
On the missions page, you can choose a mission to accept, cancel your current mission, or keep your current mission. You can only do one mission at a time, so choose wisely!
Different missions give different amounts of coins and experience. Each time that you complete a mission, you'll get half as much money and experience.
Planes (Back to Top)
On the plane page, you can switch which plane you are flying, upgrade a plane that you own, or buy a new plane. Scroll up and down to see all of the available planes. Every plane can be unlocked in two ways: If you gain the amount of experience needed, you will unlock the plane for free. Otherwise, you can buy it using coins.
Upgrades (Back to Top)
You can upgrade your plane to improve its maneuverability, fuel tank, stability, or safety by clicking on the upgrade button. Each property can be upgraded up to 10th level.
Coins (Back to Top)
Fuel (Back to Top)
Don't ever run out of fuel, or you'll immediately crash (even if you're on the ground)! If you're having an issue with fuel, be sure that you're refueling every time you land. If that doesn't solve the problem, you may need to upgrade your plane's fuel tank or buy a new plane with a larger fuel tank. Some runways are just too distant from each other to be reached with a basic plane!
Another helpful hint: If you enter a menu while at a runway, your plane will automatically refuel.
Weather (Back to Top)
Various weather conditions will be introduced to you as you proceed through the game. If you want a sneak peak, here's some hints:
Puffy clouds make your plane harder to see.
Winds will push your plane right or left.
Rain and snow will push your plane downwards.
Updrafts and downdrafts will push your plane up or down (respectively).
A tornado will spin your plane around and likely crash it.
A thunderstorm is perfectly safe - until lightning strikes.
The Pause Menu (Back to Top)
And finally, remember that you can pause the game at any time if you need a few seconds to think or want to review the instructions. When you return from the main menu, you'll appear at the last runway you successfully landed at.
