About The Game
Welcome to Pilotwings Flight Club, where your career can really soar! Produced by the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto, this Super Nintendo classic wowed audiences by putting a fun new spin on flight simulation.
Pilot a range of flying machines as you earn your wings and advance through the ranks. Jump into a biplane and soar through the floating rings, before bringing it in for a pinpoint landing. Perform a precision skydive on to a distant ground target. Soar silently on a hang-glider and catch the thermals. You can even test the experimental Rocketbelt!
If you're very skilled, you can unlock bonus stages for extra challenges; the best graduates will be called on to pilot a helicopter in a daring rescue mission. With Pilotwings, the sky's the limit!
