NEW: Version 6.1 features some improvements in general gameplay! 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!

    If you are familiar with ATC-SIM online then THIS is the game you have actually been looking for. It's vastly superior. Try the free demo first; you will get a good idea of the game. I love it.

    If I am on a 30 degree intercept I should be able to clear the aircraft for the approach. This is especially if I am going to end up intercepting the extended centerline. Right now I have no idea what conditions I have to meet to clear the aircraft for the approach.
