Very nice arcade racer. It isn't Crimson Skies but it controls like it and is fun in short bursts. Plays well on the Steam Deck.

Fun Arcade Airplane Racing, even with the 30FPS lock (that can be fixed)

An entertaining arcade airplane racing, though I could take or leave the 30fps lock (which can be bypassed with a small patch; look it up on Steam Discussion forums)
