Getting new planes

Getting airplanes is a whole different story. One entire plane costs multiple bux, anywhere from 16, into the 30s and beyond, depending on how advanced the aircraft is. An aircraft part normally costs 3 or 4 bux, and both can be found in the Menu tab under Market. If you don’t like what you see in the Market tab, it refreshes every 5 minutes.

You can also go to the “Parts” tab under Menu in order to build your own  aircraft. To build an aircraft you need the engine, controls and body all from one aircraft. Once you have this down, go to the sub-tab “Build” under Parts, and the option to build it for around 3 or 4 bux will appear next to it. To add another airplane slot, if you run out, go to the airplane tab (the one that is right next to the map tab) and buy another one using coins.
