OverviewApk Size : 30M!
Android : Varies with device!
With F-Sim Space Shuttle, a number one flight simulator for iOS finally arrives on Android. It simulates the space shuttle’s approach and landing in unprecedented detail and accuracy. Take command of the Orbiter during the final minutes of descent, and touchdown safely at the John F. Kennedy Space Center or Edwards Air Force Base.
After the landing, you can watch a replay of your flight from different perspectives, like a chase plane or from the tower. A sophisticated landing analysis also is available, in F-Sim Space only the best pilots are awarded a “perfect landing” score.
A lot of improvements, including:
• 3D sound and improved sound effects
• highscores and achievements
• save and share replays
• automatic backup of settings and stats data
• video recording (beta)
We’ve tested this version extensively on a large number of devices. If you still run into problems, please let us know and we’ll do our best to fix them.

The Orbiter’s approach is seven times steeper and twice as fast compared to a commercial airliner’s approach. Also, because during descent it is an unpowered glider, you only have one chance to get it right.
The included manual and tutorials will familiarize you with the head up display (HUD) and explain the different approach and landing phases. After some practice and your first successful touchdown, you can try crosswind or night landings.
• Striking realism
Flight dynamics, the guidance, navigation, and control (GNC) systems, and the HUD are simulated accurately and in great detail.
Follow the guidance symbol in the HUD to stay on the heading alignment cone (HAC) and align the orbiter with the runway centerline, and then follow the flare reference symbol to perform the preflare maneuver. Don’t forget to keep an eye on the visual landing aids like the precision approach path indicators (PAPI) and the ball/bar light system to stay on the outer and inner glideslopes, respectively.
Let the autopilot control rudder, speed brake, gear, and chute, or control them yourself. If you dare, simulate system failures like a stuck speed brake or HUD/guidance malfunctions.
• A wide range of options
Take your place in the commander’s seat in the stunning virtual cockpit, or view your flight from different external camera perspectives. Choose between accelerometer (tilt) controls or (virtual) analog sticks to steer the Orbiter. Land on both shuttle landing facilities, and fly either final or full approaches by selecting one of the four possible HACs. Configure day or night landings, clear or overcast skies, visibility, wind, and many other parameters.
• A number one title
F-Sim Space Shuttle has received rave reviews from flight simulation enthusiasts across the world and is ranked among the best simulations on the iOS App Store.
This Android version is based on version 2.0 of the iOS app, with some features added from versions 2.2 and 2.4. We will add more features in future updates.
