Editorial

FS2002 and FS2004 may be more than a decade old now, but I still get really impressed at the work people are capable of carrying out for these simulators!

Given that the depth of detail and control that is available now in editing, it’s hugely impressive to seeing these old simulators brought up to a far more modern standard thanks to the quality of mods that are out there on the market.

This remake of the awesome Sikorsky S-61N is a brilliant little helicopter to jump into if you want something a bit more dynamic than your usual styles. The helicopter itself is used for ferry workers and off-shore transport for workers, and this helicopter itself carries the Brunei Shell design. This means that you know who you are flying for, and where you should be flying to!

This really does offer a brilliant little extra to the whole thing and makes it nice and easy to hop into the cockpit and get flying. The helicopter itself is extremely simple to control and it offers all the help that you could possibly need in putting your helicopter on the right path as it flies. It’s a brilliant design in terms of the layout and the shape of the aircraft; my own research and comparisons soon found that this was about as accurate as you are likely to get for something like this.

The shape and the quality is spot on as is the general scale of each feature – in short, the layout and the overall design is just what you would be looking for when trying to find something like this.

This operates from the Anduki Airfield, Brunei so if you are looking for somewhere a bit different to take off from this might be the place to get started. It’s a really effective and easy to fly around in airfield that has plenty of space for lifting off from. With this chopper you’ll find that take-off and general flying around with it is very simple, given the user-friendly nature of its design and the cockpit in general. This was one of the things that impressed me the most; it just feels so secure and simple.

Without any real challenges or difficulty, you can easily get lift-off and enjoy flying around due to the easy nature of this aircraft – but that is not to mean that it’s made too simple to be an enjoyable flight. You’ll notice that like any other aircraft this requires immense levels of precision and concentration throughout to ensure you don’t wind up crashing into the rigs instead of landing at them!

The detail and the style of the flight dynamics was hugely impressive, as well. This makes it nice and simple for the aircraft to settle down in your usage after a few hours as it all starts to feel a fair bit easier to handle than other helicopters of a similar shape.

It’s easy to use, effective and seems to live up to its real-life counterpart; for a new experience, this chopper can be a brilliant little starting point.

Very Good Helicopter! It works in FS2004. The landing Gear Fails Easily, and the pilots are a little strange looking in the virtual cocpit, but otherwise a very good Helicopter. Love the ability to land on water.
