A realistic ATC (Air Traffic Control) Simulator for Android!

User Manual: http://www.maxhirn.at/web/RadarContact_UserManual.pdf

NEW: Version 5.0 finally has a save-game feature! Plus one new real airport (Innsbruck)! For other news see the "New Features" section below.
See the help section in the app for details.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: If the speech output of "non-native-english" airlines like Lufthansa, Alitalia etc. sounds strange, please make sure you have all needed languages (French, German, Italian) installed: Settings -> Language & Input -> Text-to-Speech Output -> Settings -> Install voice data

IMPORTANT: This app may be incompatible with the app "Launcher Pro". If it should crash after using "Launcher Pro", try starting RadarContact from the normal Android home screen.

This is more a simulation than an arcade game. However, you will find every information required in the help section so you can try being an air traffic controller even without previous aviation knowledge!

Important Note: This application is optimized for tablets! It should run on any screen size and resolution. On small screens however, usability may be restricted. Please try the free trial version before if in doubt. It is restricted to 15 aircraft per session and one airport.
