The control of virtual airplanes on the PC is undoubtedly one of the most interesting simulations – but at the same time also with those with the largest entry door. With Ready for Take off, however, it is now also easy for every PC pilot (beginner and advanced) to experience the last holiday flight in the cockpit. In contrast to more complex flight simulators, Ready for Take off has been designed from the ground up so that beginners can complete their flights with less effort and learning requirements. Advanced flight simulation enthusiasts in turn will get a straightforward complete solution, which already has many airports.
The player can sit behind the joystick of one of the most famous airliners: the Airbus A320. In the cockpit, the player has all the important functions and systems available – the right atmosphere is also provided by voice recording of real radio traffic. The simulation also includes a Beechcraft Baron for short distances or practice flights.
As a travel destination, Ready for Take Off delivers 9 well-known airports, including Düsseldorf, Palma de Mallorca, London Heathrow and Nice. These are modeled in high quality and with many details and have moving objects – luggage cars, buses, pushback trucks, police vehicles, etc. provide a lively apron scene. Thanks to day and night modes, these sceneries present themselves in an appropriate mood.
At the beginning, players can choose whether they want to fly on a free flight between two airports or prefer to experience long-term stress in career mode.
