Game Crash to Desktop

As of late, I’ve been experiencing frequent game crashes on similar reoccurring occasions. Just today, the moment I contacted Approach the game froze very briefly, then it simply just crashes. Couple days ago same thing. I flew an a320 down to Spain, it crashed on contact with ATC. On other occasions it crashes either when I’m close to landing or on final, or even mid-flight. For the past week or so, I’ve been able to complete only 1 of 7 or 8 flights, and that one flight was in the midst of heavy traffic in Berlin and perhaps the longest traffic pattern I’ve been apart of. One thing I know for sure, it’s not my device memory. Because if it was, there’d be a warning that it was low before it crashed, but there was no waring. And it can’t be my storage because I’ve got 32 GB free space. It can’t be heavy traffic because I did just fine in Berlin, which consisted of hundreds of airplanes flying about. My device however is an iPad Air 2 which debuted in 2014 or 15, can’t remember. But it is still in better condition than most 5 or 6 year old devices. It wasn’t until recently that the game started to crash for seemingly meaningless reasons. So right now I’ve got the game deleted off my iPad until I could possibly find a fix, because at this point it’s just taking up space. On that note, any solutions would be greatly appreciated :)

Unfortunately, the Air 2 is nearing the end of its service life when trying to run higher end graphics settings and high aircraft counts. With that being said the best solutions for now are to lower your aircraft count and lower the graphics settings in the app at the main screen settings.


I was afraid someone would say something like that. I like to get the most out of a game. So I guess I’ll have to plan on purchasing a newer model. And that really grinds my gears lol, because the newer iPads aren’t cheap nowadays.

Brightness low. Anti-Aliasing off.

I have an iPad Air 2 for the past 4 years now. It’s been running very well and I rarely have gotten into any issues. However, yes. You will crash on the highest settings, so you might have to lower settings after takeoff.

If you’re trying to take pictures of the plane or a video, you can always just replay it on highest settings.
