Having finally decided to try this interesting take for FS2002 out of the old bell 205a-1 Statford helicopters with floats, I was thoroughly impressed. Despite FS2002 feeling like it belongs in the Dark Ages compared to more modern simulators, I still felt like this done a good job of representing what is good and honest about old simulators.

It looks about as good as it can be and the level of realism in everything from the flight dynamics to the overall level of detail you’ll get inside the cockpit.

Sure, it’s not the DX11 masterpieces that we’re used to from FSX but it’s still a very high level of design for the flight simulator that it’s using. It makes use of fully animated and upgraded changes and adjustments to make sure that it flies at its very best, giving you plenty of understanding of what is going on from the cockpit.

Another big bonus has been the addition of the new sound packages – they really add to the overall atmosphere and make the aircraft much easier to get to grips with. The new sounds offer a big difference to how I was flying, too, thanks to the introduction of the fact they correlate with what you are doing.

When something is not quite right, believe me, you’ll hear the helicopter tell you!

The instrument panels by Lynn Rogers are great, too, giving you another level of control overall. The panels help you read what is going on with the aircraft and therefore makes it much easier for you to manage and control the aircraft to the best of its abilities.

I was really impressed with the body of work put forward here and, the next time I go to use FS2002 again, I might have to give this a go again.

Ive given this down load ten because it lacks nothing really . If you struggle to land a helicopter with out wheels in FS2004 the floats give you just the right margin for error, also let you land on water .
