The Westland Sea King is one of the most interesting aircraft for me, as I’ve never had much use in one. Having been using FS2004 a lot recently for nostalgia and to pass the time in hotels, I grabbed this rendition.

Preview screenshot

Ole Egholm has produced an Indian Air Force edition that looks great, flies authentically and uses many important features. Whilst nothing like what we can get today on FSX, I found that it was a very good, fair and honest on the real thing.

A Monster in the Air

The real Sea King is known for being brutally efficient, unerringly quick and vastly accurate. Well, I found that this take done a great job of making that shine through. Not only does this really feel like the aircraft that it’s so faithfully based on, but it carries the hallmarks of professional design.

The work that Ole has put into this model is really impressive. The textures shine proudly with reflective design and sharp, high-definition fixtures. These provide you with a really easy way to make the most of your aircraft needs in a high-end model that looks and flies excellently. Not only that, but it will make sure that you start to see genuine changes and improvement across the board.

It will really help you understand and appreciate the changes that can be made to simulated flights. The attention to detail in the cockpit and the concentration of accurate features in the aircraft itself ensures that it flies as fair and truly as it possibly can.

Based on Reality

One thing that really stands out on this version of the Sea King, too, is how easy it is to handle. It’s known as an authority aircraft as it’s meant to be very powerful but also only for those with the expertise to fly it.

In this version, though, it really is quite easy to get to grips with. Whilst some might get it quickly it’s not one for the veterans who are looking for the most challenging take on the aircraft. This means that your aircraft is most likely to feel a little simplistic to fly in some ways, so if you want that challenging realism you might not get it here.

However, it’s still a rewarding flight to take on. The wealth of features alone means that you can have a lot of fun at the helm of a Sea King and its armada of excellent additions. For me, this is an absolute must-have for all FS2004 users.
