    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Yes you can, on the plane just go to Settings - and turn Airplane Mode on. Some games do need the Internet to play but there are a lot that don't. You can just test these at home by turning off your wifi and/or 3G and see if they still play. If you have a 3G/4G iPad and have a sim inserted from home be aware of Cellular and Roaming data charges, it's a good idea to turn these off when abroad as these charges can be huge, go to Settings - Cellular Data and turn both of these off here. If you have a need for 3G while abroad, it is much cheaper to buy a local sim where you will be going. Hope this helps.
