How to PlayEdit
While the objective of normal Buckaroo is to see how many items can fit on a plastic mule before it bucks, Flight Deck Buckaroo is the opposite - the objective is to see how many instruments in the flight deck can be disabled without setting off a warning.
According to Douglas, the game is educational because a pilot can find out what he doesn't really need while flying.
Apparently, you don't need altimeters while flying, or, at least, GERTI doesn't.
