Take On Helicopters is a flight simulator that focus on civillians choppers there is a few military choppers but overall it’s all about doing contract as a civilians contractor. It allows you to fly at least in Seattle and In South Asia. The map is highly representative of the area with an nearly insane quantity of building around the place as well it forest and lot’s of type of terrain. The physic of flying is realistic and the immersion is amplified by the environment.
This video show one type of mission you can do, Time trial. In that type of mission you have a set of waypoints to follow and you need to cross them all before a set amount of time. So it will test your pilot skill well.
While this type of mission is fast paced, it’s very likely that the campaign will require you to be more careful with your choppers since the chopper models are highly detailed and you may end up having to fix those part if you not careful.
While this game doesn’t focus on the fact of getting shot at like most flight sims now a day, I think it worth a look and I’m very curious to see how the final game will be. Not to mention that this game use the Arma engine that has one really proactive moding community. So it clear that moder will tweak this game, adjust stuff, create great things with it.
Now this was recorded on a Preview Build. This mean it’s still in developement stage and doesn’t represent the final product. so you may notice a few minor bug like traffic disappearing at crossing, this should be fix very soon.
