Kennedy Approach is an air traffic control (ATC) simulation game that was first released on the Commodore 64 in the 1980s. It was the first game to use a speech engine, which was a significant achievement for a 64kb game. The game was also available on the Atari home computer and later on the Amiga.

It’s your job to guide airplanes to their destination. And safely. Some planes will just pass through your radar sector, others need to land at or take-off from the airport(s) in your sectors.
You can issue planes orders: climb/descend, turn left/right, clear to land and hold at VOR. Each order you issue is spoken out using the speech generator the game contains. Planes may not pass eachother to close, must exit your sector at a certain altitude and at its exit, must not fly into bad weather, must avoid mountains and no-fly zones (or fly high enough) and
Failing to do so might end your career and in some cases (wrong exit or crash) WILL end your career.
Three planes are featured, which travel at different speeds: the concorde being the fastest, then the boeing and lastly a cessna.Kennedy approach was released in 1985 (1986?) for the Commodore 64, Atari (8bit), in 1988 for the Atari ST and in 1989 for the Amiga.
