    AeroWings, known as Aero Dancing featuring Blue Impulse (エアロダンシング featuring Blue Impulse) in Japan, is a flight simulator developed by CRI for the Sega Dreamcast in 1999. It allows the user to fly as a member of a jet aerobatics team. The Japanese game differs in that it is actually based on a real squadron, the Blue Impulse.

    There have been many sequels to this game, most of which were released only in Japan.
