YMMV / Pilotwings

  • Awesome Music: The music for the free flight mode "Birdman" is well known for being very good, even the original composer was very fond of it especially because it got to be one of the longest tracks in the game.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Those who played the SNES game in the late 1990s or later may find it hard not to mentally "Gay" into Big Al's name.
  • Most Annoying Sound: The alarm that blares whenever the game announces "RATE OF DESCENT TOO GREAT" or "WATCH ALTITUDE".
  • Nightmare Fuel: Some of the instructor's facial expressions when you get a perfect score, especially Shirley.
