Description from the packaging.

Test pilots are only wrong once.

From the edge of space you scream toward Earth at Mach 3. Suddenly, your $30 million needle of rocket-fueled titanium spins violently out of control. You've only got 8 seconds- just 20,000 feet- before you dig a fiery hole in the desert. Experience and instincts tale charge as you struggle with the controls… Yeager's words echo through your mind: The real hero is the test pilot who somehow manages to survive…

Climb in the cockpit with the greatest test pilot ever.

  • Learn advanced flying the Yeager Way. Unique Windscreen Cursors teach you in-air: Flawless takeoffs, landings, aileron rolls, Cuban 8's, even hammerhead stalls.
  • Fly Yeager's wing. Follow the leader at daredevil speed through gates, slaloms, and skyscrapers.
  • Knock on Heaven's Door. Test pilot 14 different aircraft, including mach-speed and experimental jets. Use authentic test pilot evaluation charts.
