You weave your plane between the pylons and try to get the fastest time possible. In other words, it's a time trial slalom course while avoiding trees and hot-air balloons. Each time your plane passes a pylon on the correct side, the number at the top-middle of the screen gets one unit smaller. To pass a pylon correctly, you go the right of the red pylons and to the left of the blue pylons. Once the number at the top-middle of the screen reaches zero, the game is over and the timer freezes.
