This is an aircraft file compatible with Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004. The Sea King SH-3 is an anti-submarine Warfare helicopter that was produced during the cold war. The helicopter featured is a Argentinean model with a white body and a slightly modified look. This file can be quickly added to your Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 and will give you another unique helicopter to pilot in your flights around the world.
The Sea King SH-3 was designed and built by Sikorsky aircraft. The copter was introduced in 1961 and was produced until 1970. Each helicopter costs an estimated 6.4 million dollars to produce. The plane is designated as an all weather amphibious helicopter and was most commonly used by the U.S. Navy. Plans during the cold war to combat the growing Soviet fleet of submarines led to the creation of and use of the Sea King SH-3. The copter has twin turboshaft engines and is capable of landing in the water.
The body of the Sea King is capable of holding up to 28 soldiers or 9 stretchers. The helicopter can be outfitted in a number of ways. In it’s typical U.S. Navy role the copter carried a payload of four torpedoes or four depth charges. To help locate and destroy enemy submarines the helicopter is also usually outfitted with Sonar detectors and Magnetic Anomaly detectors. During the Cold War the Sea King could also be outfitted to carry the B57 nuclear bomb. Sikorsky also produced a version of the SH-3 that was designed for civil markets. This model the S-61L was commonly used by the U.S. Air Force and Coast Guard.

I’ve remarked in the past how I don’t spend too much time in the cockpit of a helicopter, and this has never really changed over the years. I definitely prefer the flight style of a plane, without a doubt, but when I get to try models out like this SH-3 Sea King I do find myself testing that faith to the very limits.
This remake of the Sea King is fully compatible is FS2004 and I must have to say, it really wouldn’t look out of place if you were to transport it to the world of FSX. It’s got incredible detail and precision, especially for an aircraft that is at least a decade old. This aircraft, of course, is far older than this as it served in the non-violent Cold War as a potential anti-submarine helicopter.
The first thing I found out was the fact that the installation is so simple, taking a matter of seconds and it really just needs to be clicked through. The whole thing is a dream to sit through and it makes getting this to work the way that you wanted so much easier than it would have seemed to start with.
It will give you an excellent helicopter to fly around that feels much different to what you might be used to – it’s certainly more “bulky” and has a greater general level of agility when compared with the typical helicopter, which can be a godsend for those who are like myself and can’t get their heads around the way that a helicopter.
This aircraft comes with the correct additions in terms of the historical context; it can take 9 stretchers or 28 soldiers on-board at any one time and this mod does a great job of making that space easily recognizable. Indeed, it can be fitted with a whole range of different kit-outs as it was used in so many different roles back in the door. It was also capable of carrying torpedoes and depth charges, making it excellent for engaging with enemy submarines.
It also comes with sonar detectors and Magnetic Anomaly detectors, making it easy for the pilot to start spotting where the enemy may be. Whilst you might not be heading into a war yourself, it certainly helps to know that all of these features were included just as they should have been in the first place!
This model, then, is one of the most comprehensive that I have come across when it comes to FS2004. It really does a great job of representing the aircraft, ensuring that you will know that you are flying a military-class aircraft. The plane is sent out as an all-weather, amphibious helicopter nad it’s usually used by the US Navy so in this package you’ll be able to pick from this kind of awesome livery, giving you a really resplendent looking aircraft.
From the look and the feel of the aircraft to the way that it flies, you can truly rule the waters with the Sea King!
