Description

This is X-Plane APOLLO, a realistic simulation of the lunar landing and docking operations of the Apollo-11 mission!

This is the most complete realistic simulation of a lunar landing that we have seen for any mobile device, and gives you a wide range of missions to try! Start off docked with the command module in a lunar orbit, and then separate from the command module to start your way down to the lunar surface. Once that is done, you can do the full de-orbit burn and orbital transfer from lunar orbit down to the touch-down phase of flight, all in REAL TIME with the actual weight, thrust, fuel capacity, and fuel burn of the REAL Apollo 11 lander.

Once you have done the de-orbit burn and orbit transfer, you enter the most challenging phase of flight: The POWERED DESCENT. During this phase of the mission, you must keep you TAIL pointed in the direction of flight, running FULL THRUST, to slow the craft from orbital speed to a standstill. This phase of flight, the 'Powered deceleration' is actually where you spend most of your time.

Once done with THAT, you enter the part of the simulation that you expect: The vertical descent and landing. This is all with actual performance of the REAL lander, right down to the radio callouts made by mission control as Neil and Buzz worked their way down in 1969.

Once you have aced the landing, you can rove around on the moon in the rover! This is a REALISTIC simulation of the 4-wheel drive, surprisingly speedy rover they used in reality, which is really fun to drive off, off, off, off, OFF-road in one-sixth gravity!

Once you have run the farthest off-road simulator ever written, you can do the launch of the lander back up towards the Command Module (waiting in orbit) and then dock the Lander with the Command Module!

During the development of the rockets and rovers that were used in the real Apollo program, they never had anything like this... this simulation is more realistic and powerful than anything they had... and you can buy it for just a few dollars.

What's New in Version 9.65

New ASCENT option shows you how the various components of the Saturn-V all went from blast-off to orbit, giving the speeds and altitudes of the separation of the various stages. QUITE A FEW pieces went into getting this hardware up to the moon!

Cool, but...

:
This is a great app, but the new launch update is flawed. The third stage separation sequence is inaccurate. The LM stays atop the 3rd stage after the fairings separate and the CM then turns around, docks with the LM, and pulls it away from the 3rd stage.

Other than this the sim is still fantastic!

4/5 stars

Great

:
You should make a rocket like in space shuttle like an automated launch awesome app

2/5 stars

Update

:
1. Reentry would be nice
2. Take off
3. And more realistic rover drive
