Sega Arcade Airline Pilot Video Game

Mon Dec 01, 2003 3:46 am

I had a chance to play Sega's Airline Pilot at Dave and Buster's and it was pretty nice. It was the only arcade flight simulator game I saw that didn't have combat or anything.

Basically you takeoff, fly around and land all in a 767. It had throttles, flaps, and langing gear buttons too.

I think it'll be awesome if they had these at the airport to play while you are waiting for your flight.

Is that the one with the ANA aircraft? I tried that on the boardwalk in San Diego, and it was pretty cool. I lucked out with a good landing, and my family was very impressed ...  Laugh out loud

Hey Matt, I played it at Dave and Buster's (in Cali over thanksgiving) too!

Obviously no one played the game too much, as the price was "only" 3 credits.

My version had an ANA 777.

It was alright. I like how they emphasize the V speeds, just like real life. However, I wish they gave you more gauges (to look at your engine thrust).
no wire hangers!

If anyone wants to have a Airline Pilot machine of thier own, its just 5,900USD. Big grin

Never came across that arcade game yet but that would be the day if I come across that in GameWorks.  Big grin

I played one at a Casino of the I-17 just north of Camp Verde, AZ. It too was a 777, however, it had been wired wrong, so in order to go down, you had to pull the yolk back, and vice versa, it was pretty difficult to adjust. I tried it about a year later and the problem had been fixed.

I've played that game when I went to a Dave and Buster's in the Irvine area of Dallas last year. I recall flying a Japan Air Lines 777 and doing a circle-to-land visual (the hard level) into the airport. It was pretty interesting.

Guys,

I think we're talking about two different games here. The first, called Airline Pilot by Sega, features three display screens(as can be seen in the link provided by N751PR) The second game, I believe is called High Speed Landing Japan by Taito. This game has only a single screen.

The Airline Pilot game can be found at most Dave & Buster's, while the High Speed Landing game seems to be scattered around. I played the High Speed Landing game at the game center at San Francisco's Pier Boardwalk. And it was also at the game center in the New York, New York hotel in Las Vegas. While in Vegas, I stopped by Gameworks, what a disappointment. A bunch of tired OLD games. Gamers looking for the newest and the best should avoid this place like the plague! Dave & Buster's seems to be the best place for the newest and best selection of games.

In my opinion, Airline Pilot is definitely the better of the two! Complete the "training portion" of the game(including engine out procedures) and become "co-pilot" qualified, and be treated to a special assignment of landing in a raging storm with strong crosswinds. Ever crab a 777 in a storm? I did, and it was a blast! Landing was also fun in the crosswind.

On a side note, I always love to hear the wannbees behind me(while I'm playing) talking smak about how that's soooo easy. Blah, blah, blah. Sure, anyone that understands the principles of flight and the flight controls, WILL MAKE IT LOOK EASY, but to the layman who doesn't know squat and can't stop bragging how easy it is to his girlfriend.......I just usually let them play next and stand there and watch as they totally OVERCONTROL and make an arse out of themselves in front of their girlfriend. After he's crashed and is getting up from the game, I can't help but smile at him. You dork!

Cheers,

Jet-A gasguy

Both games must be awesome. I was really surprised to find a flight game that didn't have combat in it. Does anybody know if they have Flight Simulator-Arcade?

I think this version just had a generic 777 with AIRLINER on it. Yeah Hass it was real cool that they put in the V-Speed stuff, like it'll tell you to pull up after 188 kts or something. I found the game tucked away in the far corner and only like 1 other guy was playing it.

How was the training stuff? I just went to the flight program and you have to fly around and find these time extended hoops to keep flying. Then after awhile they ask you if you want to try to land it.

I played the Sega game at Dave and Buster's in the Bay Area - too much fun! I spent all my credits on this simulator while my friends stood by and made comments about the boring looks of the game. That's alright...they can poke fun all they want...they'll never understand the beauty and excitement of flight!

I tried the arcade game 'Landing High Japan'... It was a game where you take off and land ANA jets (included 744D, 762, 763, 772, 773). Quite fun...
The biggest mistake made by most human beings: Listening to only half, understanding just a quarter and telling double.

Yes "Landing High Japan" is a very good game, the graphic is a lot better than "Airline Pilot" I think. There is one at "Funland" in Leicester Square in Central London, have a try!
Please excuse my poor English.

If any of you wind up at the Kansas Cosmosphere in Hutchinson, Kansas, give a go at their shuttle landing simulator. Its free and there's nothing like trying to land a shuttle in a full crosswind on the hard level.

Too bad I was out of time when I was at LHR, or else I would have given this Airliner video game a go. In my part of the world, one doesn't often see games like this.

I've played those games too, but unfortunately they are not very realistic, especially in terms of holing the speed. If I come back to idle in my 777 on finals, the speed will bleed off, but nowhere near as quickly as it does on the game. Not realistic at all, but fun to mess around in!
