FS2002/FS2004 Aerospatiale HH65A Dolphin US Coast Guard Package

Jump to: Screenshots | Comments | File Details | Editorial

Version 1.1 This package consists of repaints of Antti Pankkonen's AS365N3 Dauphin in the colors of the US Coast Guard aka the HH65A Dolphin. This package consists of 8 HH65s stationed around the US, also includes 2 panels for both versions of Flight Simulator, smoke effects, a new flashing beacon operated by the strobe key, sounds and much more. This is a complete package so there is nothing else to download. Credits: Brian MacIntyre, Hugh Pratt, Terega, Antti Pankkonen (AS365 model creator). Presented by GSpider Rotorcraft Designs.

To install, double click on the set-up program, enter the path of your Flight Simulator directory.   Once you have done that, click next and the set-up should be automatic. There are 2 panel versions, one for FS2004 and one for FS2002. If you plan on flying the helicopter in FS2002, rename panelFS2002 to panel since that version has the landing gear lever installed.

Editorial

In the past, I’ve made mentions about using old flight simulators from time to time. Whether it’s for retro nostalgia or because you are using a weaker PC that can’t really handle the requirements needed for FSX and other simulators, sometimes firing up the older editions like FS2002 or FS2004 can be quite fun.

With all of the excellent content still out there to download as well, it can be fun to fire up those old classics that you used for so many hours, or experiment with something entirely new that you missed out on when you previously used that edition of Flight Simulator!

Whatever the reasons for picking up an old flight simulator are, I think you’ll be hugely impressed with what this package can provide you with. Giving you access to a really nice helicopter in the shape of the HH65A Dolphin, you’ll be able to fly around as if you are part of the US Coast Guard. It can be nice to pop into the cockpit of an aircraft and fire off into the skies, especially something as uniquely interesting and detailed as this one.

The installation instructions are nice and simple for a start, so you can easily get into your aircraft and take off with the absolute minimum of fuss – as it’s for an older flight simulator it’s an easy one to get used to flying and how to handle it appropriately.

Of course, it all takes a bit of time and patience so you need to be prepared to put in that time to get used to the quirks – I had my fair share of crashes at first, being used to the more fluid FSX – but before long you’ll be flying this like a pro!

The attention to detail within the package is pretty awesome; I was really impressed at how well it stands up when you compare I with the more modern aircraft that many of us will be used in modern flight simulators. The effects match in well with many of the additions that we see being used today to great effect, so it can be nice to see just how far the modding community has come as well.

In terms of the actual performance of the aircraft, this is as close to it as you would have been able to get back in 2002 or 2004!

The style of the aircraft is very impressive, though, as it takes many of its traits and research from official documentation; if you want authenticity in abundance, you’ll find it here. It’s simply and really easy to use, and makes sure that you have all the help that you need in getting right into the situation.

If you’ve ever wanted to take on the role of coastguard and come speeding around the place saving lives, then you’ll feel right at home in this comfortable and friendly cockpit!

The overall package comes together excellently and can give you a real taster of what flying in older simulators can be like if you use the right add-ons and modifications!
