Flight simulators have been extremely popular within certain circles, especially the PC crowd. Hundreds of thousands of logged flight time, tons of mods, even elaborate homemade rigs... It's one of those things that's just insanely popular among a specific set of people.
With that rabid fanbase in mind, TAS Games is preparing to release Flight Unlimited - a less expansive but no less impressive single-aircraft simulation. Players can freely explore the immense city and parts of the surrounding suburbs in their adorable little Cesna. Exploration is the key element here, as there don't seem to be any official tasks or missions to complete. It's just the player, the plane, and a city full of things to buzz, land on and crash into. And it sure looks pretty.
Flight Unlimited is available on the App Store now for $2.99. iPhone 3GS users and below need not apply. It's currently only planned for the iPad (1 and 2) and the iPhone 4 (and 4S).
