Aviation Adventure is divided into several areas of interest:
Aviation Reference Library & Aircraft Encyclopedia: You can navigate via a globe for locations, a time line, or category buttons (Early Aviation, for instance). A picture will be displayed while the narration scrolls below simultaneously with the audio. By moving the pointer around in the picture window, note balloons give additional information; click on a note balloon, and you will travel to a different entry about a related subject. By clicking on a word in the text window, you can locate index entries to articles in which that word appears; click on the name of the entry you want to see. To return, press the escape key. You can also print text or images. Information from the reference library forms the basis for the Trivia Quiz.
Aviation Theater: After selecting a category, make selections by clicking on the frames at the right of the movie screen. Three categories of video clips are available:
Click on members of the audience for a surprise,
Aviation Lab: Ten different aircraft are available for inspection. You can view the exterior, or a cutaway diagram of the interior. Text will be read and scroll below the picture window.
Paper Plane Factory: Learn to fold various paper airplanes by looking at the step-by-step images of the paper plane in the picture window, by listening to and reading the instructions. You can stop after each step and even move back or forward a step at a time as needed. Certain principles of flight (such as balance and angle of attack) are also explained.
Glider Game: Exactly that. Follow the visual instructions to make several complex paper gliders.
Aviation Museum: Move through rooms, doors, and hallways suggestive of a Doom game. Click on pictures to hear and read more about them. The Dogfight Theater is a must see.
Aviation Adventure Trivia Quiz: Each multiple choice question offers four different pictures with sound narration and/or balloons explaining each suggested choice. Humor is at its best in this section. By logic and process of elimination you can usually limit the possible answers to two. Great audio reinforcers (That's Right! Good work! You're joking, right? Whoa! Try again!) for each question. For each level you will see an animated cartoon clip if you do well, or documentary disaster clip if you do poorly. Items are based on information in the Aviation Reference Library and Aircraft Encyclopedia. You can press the hint button to get 60 seconds to try finding the answer in the library/encyclopedia section.
Flight Simulator: The user must become familiar with a number of commands on the keyboard before embarking on the training flight, much less an actual mission. With sufficient time and practice, you might actually become a proficient pilot.
