Having departed Aberdeen:

we set out for a tour of the North Sea Rigs.

The ICARO AW139 is suitably IFR equipped for journeys far into unfriendly waters

En route, we have a look at the Anasuria and later, the Triton

Returning to Aberdeen. Another opportunity to try out the autoland system!

It's the ICARO AW139, arguably the best helo you could hope for in a sim! :)

Nice looking chopper, how details are the avionics? And does it come for p3d?

Thanks for comments, guys.

Probably as good as you get?

I made a clip showing the startup:

 

This can also be done from the VC.

 

The helo also is equipped with a 3-channel autopilot - I flew the above with LNAV slaved to GPS.

 

I hope it works for you in P3D! :)

I have their EC135 heli for FSX (Icaro = H&S Design, kind of!) a lovely freeware heli, or rather many helis - the model and livery quantities are staggering. :cool:

I've seen clips of the 139 in FSX so I assume it runs OK there.

Yes the helo guys make a bewildering array of models and liveries, I am not halfway through what's on offer!

Here's a nice view of the AW139 (Augusta Weyland??) - after startup skip to 5:30 for lift-off. It shows just how beautiful the ICARO model is, I reckon

 

 

And don't miss edetroit's great FS9 clips: to the Galaxy III outbound

 

 

and return
