Airline Tycoon Evolution is the second upgraded re-release of Airline Tycoon. The player is the manager of an airline and has all the typical options of managerial games, e.g. buying and selling aircraft, assembling the flight plans or hiring employees. The handling is similar to Mad TV, which means the whole game is played in real-time and in 3rd person. To reach the menu screens the player character has to walk to the appropriate office.
