= CONTROLS =====
[SPACE] Increase thrust
[S] Decrease thrust
[< Arrow key] Increase pitch (pull up)
[> Arrow key] Decrease pitch
[G] Toggle landing gear
[Dragable slider at top-right] Wheel brakes
[A] Autopilot (automatically disengages in some cases)
[Z] Raise flaps
[X] Lower flaps
[V] Open spoilers (slowing down in air)
[C] Close spoilers
[I] Information of runways, map (very important)
[D] Toggle fuel dump
[F] Seatbelt light toggle
[M] Turn on music
[O] Extra (developer's) information

Flight codes (6 digit numbers):
After landing, you can retrieve your code with [1]. Copy it with Ctrl+C, then paste in the comments. This code has data about your flight such as approximate distances, weather and time.

To extract data into readable format, press [9]. Paste in with Ctrl+V.

Before saying "its not working", read below or the instructions again

= HOW TO PLAY =====
Upon starting, a screen shows to set options. (everything is already set up) Press SPACE to start game.

Basic info before flight-
-Flaps allow more lift at slower speeds
-While flying, an arrow shows the location of the next runway
-Spoilers are brakes on the wings that slow down the airplane
-Runway markings show distances to the end of the runway, pattern goes:
>> ≡ - - = - - - - - - = - - ≡
≡ indicates many lines
= indicates thick lines

Taking off-

1. Increase flaps.
2. Increase thrust to full power, and let the plane speed up to 280kph/170mph.
3. Pull up, and continue at 10° pitch.
4. When safely off the ground, raise landing gear.

Landing (complicated)-

1. Open up the runway location map [i], and find the next suitable runway. The variable at the bottom indicates the distance to the next runway. If it is too close to land, check the list for the next runway (after the glowing number), and prepare descent.
2. Increase flaps, put throttle to half power and use light amounts of spoilers to slow down. This requires practice to do properly.
3. When a few hundred metres above the ground, lower landing gear, make final adjustments to pitch and try to slow down to 275kph/170mph at the same time the runway starts.
4. Once the runway has appeared, level off a bit and use spoilers to allow plane to glide to the ground. The rear wheels should take the force when landing.
5. Smoothly apply brakes (click the slider at the top-right).

If you find a glitch, please tell me.
