Scoring explained, on every mission you can earn 100 points by: 1. performing the mission objective (like going through a series of rings), 2: performing your task within a certain time and 3: executing an accurate and controlled landing.
Skydiving part 1: Climbing towards 5000 feet.
Skydiving part 2: Freefalling through a series of rings

Before every lesson you get to see the lesson-map with the targets for the missions the lesson consists of
The controls for the rocketbelt. Each craft has different controls

You need to do (very) well on each of the missions to score enough points to complete a lesson
Light Plane part 1: Taking off
Light Plane part 2: You need to fly underneath the arch in the background
Light Plane part 3: Landing. Landing in the middle of the runway results in many accuracy points
