Take flight from the comfort of your seat with two new games in the United app
If you have ever wondered what it’s like to fly an airplane, you can take flight right now in the United app’s Game Center, with two new games for aviation enthusiasts and future pilots.
Step into the role of an air traffic controller as you guide United planes from our new fleet down the runway with Cleared to Land, created by RarePixels. In the game, you’ll see how busy operations in the Air Traffic Control (ATC) tower can get. Players will need to coordinate the landing of several different United planes from our new fleet, including our Boeing 787-900, Airbus A321 XLR, Archer Maker eVTOL, Heart Aerospace ES-19, and Boom Overture Supersonic aircraft. The challenge is landing incoming aircraft on their respective runways with perfect timing, while avoiding collisions.
After successfully directing incoming planes as an air traffic controller, try your hand at landing a United aircraft from the cockpit. With Flight Simulator, players can step into the pilot’s seat and learn how to land with helpful tutorials and guidance from the ATC tower. Players will get a feel for descending and approaching San Francisco International Airport in different weather conditions during the day and at night. The game was created by SkyTale Studios and modeled after the actual flight simulators with which new United pilots are trained.
You can find Flight Simulator and Cleared to Land in the Game Center under the “more” tab in the United app. These games are available anytime you want to jump into the flight deck or ATC tower, whether in f light or at home. And if you can’t get enough of these games, we have a question for you: Have you ever thought about a career in aviation? Whether you want to become a pilot or work with cutting-edge digital technology, United offers an exciting variety of aviation careers. You can learn more about them at united.com/careers.
Not only did we create these games to keep you entertained during your flight, we also designed them to inspire the future generation of aviation enthusiasts and pilots, as well as students, technology partners, and gamers. If you’re a start-up employee, student, or gamer who is interested in building a game for the United app, we would love to hear from you. Please reach out to us at email@example.com. On your next flight, check out the Game Center for new games. Later this fall, we’ll launch a live trivia game that allows you to play with other passengers on United flights in real time.
