‘Tracon! 2012’ Challenges You To Maintain Safe Separation Between Aircraft As They Approach Their Destination

Flight simulations specialist ‘FeelThere’ is proud to announce the release and availability of ‘Tracon! 2012’ for the PC. To players unfamiliar with the term “Tracon”, it means ‘ Terminal Radar Approach Control’, and is a facility found in all major airports around the world. While every airport varies, the responsibility of terminal controllers is to handle all air traffic control within a given radius from the airport. ‘Tracon! 2012’ offers to PC players the unique opportunity to take upon themselves the critical responsibility of assuring safe separation between airplanes, sequence the landing flights, and make sure they are properly relayed to the Control Center after being guided to their departing route.
