Mixed or average reviews - based on 7 Critics What's this?

  • Summary: (Currently available in the UK/EU only) Beginning with a selection of training exercises to familiarise yourself with the controls, the game then moves straight into a series of increasingly challenging missions. Boasting a wide range of aircraft from all generations, Pilot Academy gives you the opportunity to fly the Boeing 747, Concorde, Airbus A380, Spitfire, F117, A10 Tank buster and Sukhoi Su-26 amongst many others. Up to eight players will be able to take part in four different multiplayer games with the 'Deathmatch' mode available to any PSP owner whether they own a copy of the game or not.

  1. A beautifully realised flight sim for the PSP that will take a lot of practice to master.
  2. It's a game that will satisfy only masochists and super-skilled PSP pilots. [Nov 2006, p.87]
  3. Decent handheld flight sim, with a good variety of gameplay. [Nov 2006, p.84]
  4. Pilot Academy offers moments of great enjoyment that are unavoidably affected by both the game and the PSP's shortcomings.
  5. A decent spread of planes and challenges but sadly Pilot Academy's wings are clipped by a lack of personality. [Nov 2006, p.104]
  6. Unfortunately, the whole experience takes a nosedive when you start to play. Without the excitement of shooting down other planes, or the challenge of a regular flight sim, Pilot Academy would struggle to hold your interest on a flight to Europe.
  7. In fact, if, like me, you find yourself the victim of a game-breaking glitch, which requires you to hold down the SELECT button the whole time you're in the air, you'll definitely be disappointed.
