You're cleared for landing

Flight Control is an attractive, addictive game in which you play an air-traffic controller guiding an endless armada of incoming aircraft to (you hope!) safe landings at a crowded airport.

Flight Control is an attractive, addictive game in which you play an air-traffic controller guiding an endless armada of incoming aircraft to (you hope!) safe landings at a crowded airport. Flight Control makes brilliant use of the iPhone and iPod Touch's interface, as you use your finger to trace a trajectory for each approaching craft, sending jets to the long runway, small planes to the short runway, and slow-moving helicopters to the airport's helipad. The controls are incredibly simple and intuitive, which contributes to Flight Control's surprisingly rich and devilishly addictive gameplay.

The game starts out at a leisurely pace, but as aircraft enter from every edge of the screen with increasing frequency, the sky quickly becomes filled with aircraft, all traveling at different speeds with overlapping trajectories. We would love to see even more improvements (possibly more maps, and maybe some way to skip past the slower start of each game), but overall Flight Control is an exceptionally entertaining and satisfying game.
