Learn to Fly is a launcher game where you play as a penguin attempting to fly using a ramp and various gadgets. In this game, your goal is simple: fly as high, long, and far as possible.
You attempt to fly as far as possible. Flying high, long and far gives you cash you can spend on upgrades. You can also gain cash from completing achievements on each level. The goal is to reach 6000 ft. in the shortest amount of turns. Once you reach your goal, you may continue playing to see how far you can fly.

There are six upgrades to choose from.
- Ramp Height lets you start higher up.
- Acceleration makes the ramp slipperier, meaning you start faster.
- Air Resistance, lets you keep your speed longer. It requires a good Glider to be useful, because having a bad one or none at all makes you drop like a stone.
- Gliders reduces how much you drop while flying, allowing you to reach greater flight lengths.
- Rockets give you a boost when you need it.
- Rocket Fuel increases the amount you can use your rockets.
For a speed completion (required for the hardest badge), you need to purchase upgrades efficiently. The following table provides one path:
|2||Acceleration 1||5' - Distance|
|3||Glider (if possible), Ramp Height 1 and Air Resistance 1 otherwise||5' - height (with glider), distance otherwise|
|4||Ramp Height 1 and Air Resistance 1 (or glider)||5' - height|
|5||Ramp Height 2, Acceleration 3||10'|
|6||Air resistance 3, Rocket 1||5' - Speed|
|8||Ramp Height 6||20' - height, glide|
|9||Glider 2, Air resistance 6||10' - distance, speed|
|10||Acceleration 6||35' height, glide time|
|11||Glider 3, Fuel 5.||20' -- distance, speed|
|12||Rocket 2,||35 -- distance, speed|
|13||Ramp Height 10, Air Resistance 9||50' - height, glide time|
|14||Any remaining upgrades||50' - speed, distance.|
