Aerofly FS 2 Robinson R22 Helicopter Released!

  • For those of you who have been patiently awaiting the release of the Robinson R22 helicopter the wait is over! Today marks the release of the much anticipated R22, the very first helicopter for Aerofly FS2.






    And just because the R22 is the first helicopter release for Aerofly FS2 doesn't mean that it will lack quality, quite the opposite actually. The quality and craftsmanship that was put into the development of the R22 surpasses anything ever developed before.


    The Robinson R22 also has physics that are so precise you would swear that you were flying the real bird, especially in VR.


    The Aerofly FS2 R22 was designed with the professional and novice in mind featuring both a beginner mode that provides more stability and balance when you fly allowing you to fly while enjoying the surrounding scenery, and a professional mode that handles just like the real life counterpart. Whichever mode you choose you can be sure that you will have the experience of a lifetime.





    Along with the release of the R22 comes an update which adds over 120 new heliports to the mix. You will find many new helipads in various locations on the map. Two of these new locations, Fort Jefferson at the Dry Tortugas, Florida and the Downtown Manhattan Heliport, New York are two examples that truly complement this new addition.








    We are confident that the R22 will add many new hours of excitement and exploration. How will you spend your time?


    Also in this update we have made further improvements, be sure to check out our CHANGE LOG for more information

  • "How will you spend your time?"


    Well, waiting for the DVD Update. 8o


    Looks really good, the Copter.

    Wish for Aerofly FS 2:

    - Flightpath recording on hard drive and replay in sim from different view points (recording under VR, replay on screen)

    - Smoke for aerobatic planes

    - Multiplayer or at least watching other people flying sitting on ground or inside tower

  • Well done to the IPACS team for getting this out. :thumbup:


    I found a good, straight to the point video on controls in the R22. (Camera work isn't great)


    I particularly like at 4:30, to paraphrase: "Robinson recommend you always reach around to the left to access the trim control, because it's near the fuel cut off and people have pulled that by accident, mid flight". Well designed Robinson, well designed.



  • Looking forward to slow and go scenic adventures. And maybe do some window viewing in the highrises of New York and Chicago. And than again I might try a plateau landing in Utah. But before I take the R22 for a spin, I will need to brush up on flying a helicopter. Happy rotoring to all.

  • It's not new scenery. We added cultivation and it's in the current announcement and in the change log.

    Is this new cultivation the same as the freeware offered at Flightsim.org?


    Could they interfere with one another?
