According to SnakeHead Software, the software application they are currently working on will prove to be the one and only true dogfight flight simulator. The app is called Flying Aces and will work on all iPhones and iPod Touch devices running OS 2.0.

The game puts you in the shoes of an F-15 Eagle pilot flying over the Persian Gulf. Your goal in this game is to shoot down all your enemies, regardless if they are A.I. or other iPhone users. The more A.I. Fighter jets you shoot down, the higher your ranking will be – that ranking will have an impact later on, when you will want to take on human adversaries. Just to make the whole thing more realistic, the manufacturers have added accelerometer controls.

SnakeHead Software says the app will feature the following: high speed action, attractive graphics and visual effects, and strategic power-ups. This on top of the player vs. player ranking system, accelerometer flight control, and the possibility to take on any other iPhone user in a dogfight.

Flying Aces is expected to hit the market sometime next month and will set you back about $8 (the official price listing is $7.99). A more expensive, multiplayer version of the software will be made available at the price of $9.99, but an exact release date has yet to be provided. The catch is that if you get the initial version from the App Store in November, SnakeHead will (presumably) let you have the multiplayer upgrade for free.

Flying Aces targets users that want to play a flight simulator but are not exactly content with what Laminar Research's X-Plane 9 has to offer (X-Plane 9 is priced $9.99 in the App Store). A video demo of Flying Aces is already available on the web, so don't forget to check it out.
