==========Version Hitory==========
1.0 Hey all, this is my first FAQ, so i hope my "rookie"
mistakes aren't that bad or frequent. More Versions will
be released later, i hope you enjoy!

2.0 6/2/99 I have added a secrets section like i said i would last
update. Now all i need to do is get the FAQ and walkthrough
done. I've also added the requirements for the medals. As 
well as the credits. DOH! forgot that last time! This is
only a small update, hopefully next update will be bigger!

3.0 6/3/99 Added the FAQ today, not much else. Added a new secret
as well. This update wasn't really that big, but at least i got it done.
My next update may or may not include a walkthrough, depending on
when i want to get the next update out!

====================
2. The Birdman Stars
====================

Here are the locations of the 4 birdman stars:

Holiday Island: 
Along the water there is a natural arch,under it is the
birdman star, i reccomend using the Jetpack to get to this
birdman star!

Little States Island: This one is in Central Park! Why don't
you visit the statue of liberty while your in the area? I also
reccomend using the jetpack to get to this one!

Crescent Island: In a cove along the beach, there is another birdman
star, you should either use the Jetpack or the Gyrocopter to get
to this one!

Everfrost Island: Now this one is pretty well hidden, first find the 
group of waterfalls, at the top of those, go through the right cave,
at the end there is the last birdman star!


==================
3. The Charecters
==================

There are 6 charecters in the game, none of which are "secret"
Most of them are good at different things, here are the charecters
and their best abilities!
(the following are my opinions after using the charecters on all the 
levels, they are not 100% accuracte but should be pretty accurate.
Just don't e-mail me telling me i'm wrong!)

Lark
Best Event: Birdman, Skydyving
Worst Event: Hang Glider

Kiwi
Best Event: Jumple Hopper!
Worst Event: Almost Anything else

Hawk
Best Event: He Doesn't Have One, He's Awful
Worst Event: Pick One!

Ibis
Best Event: Hang Glider, Jet Pack
Worst Event: She's Pretty Bad At Jumble Hopper...

Goose

Worst Event: well....obviously..JetPack

Robin
Best Event: Cannonball
Worst Event: JetPack

5. Secrets
==========

Here are some useful and not-so-useful secrets that
can be found while playing pilotwings. Have any secrets
that aren't listed here? send them in to me and i will post
it along with your name in the credits section!

-Face Lift-
This one is pretty useless, it's just for people who like to
blow stuff up(like me!) anway, on Class B use the gyrocopter
and fly to Mt. Rushmore. See mario's face? hit it with a few
missles and it will turn into wario! now THAT's a face lift!

-Face Lift 2-
Just go to cannonball mode, Level 1. Hit Mario again with the 
cannon and he will turn into wario again. this one is more fun 
to do in my opinion

-From Night To Day-
i am pretty sure this trick works with birdman, as well as
the other 3 vehicles on the begginger course. Go to the begginer
stage, near the castle, see that river? follow along the watery path
to find the source of the lake, go inside the cave to the end.
if it worked you should hear a sound, when you exit the cave it will
no longer be Day, it will be night. This serves no real purpose that
i know of but it still is cool! 

-Where's AM-PM when you need them?-
In little states island there is a gas station! Just land under the 
roof with your rocketpack\ Gyrocopter and it will automaticlly re-fuel
you! your fuel gauge will now be full!

-More Endings!-
This isn't really that much of a secret, well sorta. anyway there
are actully 3 endings in the game. they are all the same except
one takes place in morning, one noon, and one at night! Here's

Morning: Complete all of the normal missions
Afternoon: Get a gold medal on all the normal missions, PLUS all
the bonus missions.
Night: Get a perfect score on all the normal, and bonus missions!

6. FAQ
=======

Q. Sometimes when i'm using my gyrocopter, there are these blue
and\ or white balls in the air. What is the point of these?

A. They are un-opened rings, you need to fly through the previous
ring(s) to open them.

Q. The dots on my radar are sometimes yellow, and sometimes green, 
sometimes they even switch from green to yellow, or vice versa. Why
do they change?

A. These dots stand for rings, or targets, the dots will be yellow if it 
is above you, and green if it is below you.

Q. Sometimes when i go to the red areas on my map that show up on my radar
when i'm using my hang glider, there isn't a thermal there. Why?

A. You are either too high, or low to reach the thermal. the radar only 
indicates where the thermals are horizontilaly, not verticlly.

7. Credits
==========

The cannonball settings were copied from Ign64.com. And only
the cannonball settings, some of my secrets may be on Ign64's site
and probably are. But i found these myself, i don't have too many secrets
so either go to ign64.com or if you'd like you can submit some to me, which
would help other people out as well!  Also i would like to have am actual FAQ 
in this, so send any questions you have as well.

The rest of this FAQ was written entirely by me, and i have not
taken anyone elses work. If you have any comments\complaints\etc e-mail
them to me! 

One more thing, i hope to have a walkthrough and a FAQ in the next version
last version, i hoped for that plus a secrets FAQ, hopefully i can have
one of the next two done in the NEXT update :)

And finally, this entire FAQ is copyrighted by me.
