Description from the packaging.
"There are two kinds of pilots. Those that fly an F/A-18, and those that wish they did."
- anonymous F/A-18 pilot.
Fly the most advanced aircraft of our time.
The F/A-18 is a technological marvel. With 32,000 lbs. of thrust, this jet catapults you off a pitching aircraft carrier deck to an altitude of over 40,000 feet. The computer assisted "fly by wire" and dual vertical stabilizers make the F/A-18 one of the most agile fighters. When a heat-seeking missile homes in on your afterburners, execute a Vertical Rolling Scissors and escape the cone of vulnerability. F/A-18 Interceptor is user-friendly- enemy deadly.
The F-16 Flying Falcon- the best fighter today. This land-based engineering masterpiece achieves so sharp an angle of attack the enemy is left behind in the jet wash. The F-16 affords a 360 degree unobstructed view and state of the art Hotas (Hands on Throttle and Stick) technology. All accurately simulated in F/A-18 Interceptor. You've got a multi-million dollar Evans-Sutherland Department of Defense flight simulator that fits in your pocket.
When all else fails, eject and hope your buddies like you enough to fish you out of the drink. Watch your freefall from 8 out-of-cockpit viewpoints.
These bogeys won't play it again, Sam. Your first missile rips through the canopy, the second through the fireball. Get in close and fire your M61 cannon at 6,000 rounds per minute.
Holographic Heads Up Display. Lock on with advanced instrumentation. Look over your shoulder at the carrier below or at the bad guy's partner zeroing in.
Skim the whitecaps and cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge. If you like scenery, buzz Alcatraz or fly between the Pyramid and downtown highrises.
Hit the deck. There are 11 cables slung across the carrier deck to bring you in. The best pilots ignore the first 9. Will you?
