Oops! It looks like your flying adventures didn't go exactly as planned and you’ve barely made it off the runway! But don't worry, there's way more to the world than flying simulators. There are these amazing things called trains, and you can walk around on them too!

Alright, now we're starting to figure it out! You're getting the hang of flying and exploring in the game. Your knowledge is pretty good to be fair, but there is still some way to go! There's also still lots more to discover from your flights around the world. Maybe try flying different planes or visiting new places in the game to see if you can score higher the next time around?!

Wow, that's awesome! You're really almost a true flying ace!! Great job! But if you want to be a real pro, why not try some trickier challenges or learn about how real pilots fly? Have you tried using the controls only? Things can get really spicy when you only use the onboard instruments, so give it a go, and don’t forget your parachute!

Amazing! There’s nothing you don’t know! You've mastered flight simulator like a real pro! Way to go! Take a moment to celebrate your success, and when you're ready, why not try creating your own flying adventures or challenging your friends to see who's the best pilot? Maybe you could consider becoming an actual pilot? You’ve clearly got the skills for it!
