Air Combat App
Looking for modern air combat app: (F-15, F-18) with HUD, 3D flying, long and short range weapons, missions, etc. An (old) example is Sid Meier's "F-15 Strike Eagle."
Hunting around the app store, either the games are written for the iPhone, or there are very few good ratings.

Couldn't agree more, I can't believe developers aren't taking advantage of the iPads larger screen. I'm looking for the same thing!

I bit the bullet and downloaded Mini-Jetfight, which is a universal iOS app that was ported over from a WindowsMobile version:

* I also quickly realized that I do not know how to fly a plane, being to used to joystick games: here you need to work the flaps and rudder.
I ran into a couple of minor bugs:
* When enemy planes are firing cannons, after awhile the cannon firing sound goes into a loop. The "Enemy Firing Cannons" message does stop and start correctly as required.
* HUD display disappears mid-flight. I have to toggle the (V)iew off/on to get it to reappear.
I would also like to see an "objective," such as a bombing run, etc., other than winning the dogfight against the multiple opponents (not yet, even on "rookie" mode - need more practice controlling the plane.)
All in all, OK at this point given the alternatives.
