TIPS AND TRICKS
 
When you are 'course out', the crewman doesn't say the 'arrive message'.

You can't get a 100 score! The game has been programmed to never give a perfect score to the player. Even if he does a good landing.

When you land tokyo international airport, you are able to land another roll. but, it means you couldn't get any point...
