Regarding the BFDG UH60, I haven't tried it myself, but from what I've read, it looks to be an older model that isn't at the same quality level as more recent payware helicopters. Linked below is a review you might want to read. It's from 2014, but I don't think the model has had any updates since then:

I strongly recommend either the X-Trident Bell 412 or the DreamFoil Bell 407 as great state-of-the-art helicopters in X-Plane.

The Bell 412 is now officially updated for XP11. I don't think the Bell 407 is officially updated yet, but I've tried it in XP11 v1.0 and it works fine when starting with engines running. There might still be some issues with cold starts.

That's a diverse selection of addons you're picking from: A helicopter, a WWII plane, and two scenery items located half a world apart!

I would agree with Paraffin on the helicopter. Look to either X-Trident or Dreamfoil if you're wanting a good XP helicopter.

KLAS is pretty good value for the money. Adds quite a bit of scenery, it's been awhile since I've flown around there in the sim, but the package has something for all types of flying.

I can't comment on the B-25 or Mykonos, since I don't have either...

Many thanks for your thoughts! I did decide to take Baku by Drzewiecki Design, because it covers the whole country of Azerbaijan. My first payware helicopter for X-Plane will be the X-Trident Bell 412, but not this month.

I'll be snagging up DD's New York airport pack with my points.

Points are cool but you can only use them straight up, you cant apply them towards a purchase (money + points)

To be expected.   I however will have the points once I snag JARDesign's A320Neo.
