The Bell UH-1 is without a doubt one of the best known helicopters to most people. It was imprinted in our culture by the moving images from the Vietnam War were it changed the face of warfare. And it never left as thousands are still flying in every corner of the world.
Fifty years after it first flew it is still in production and that’s something no other helicopter can claim. The characteristic sound of the two-bladed rotor can be heard over jungles and city centers. Even though it has only one engine it is very reliable and rugged. A workhorse that’s not afraid to get dirty and will fly just as happy with a few pounds more than the manual states it can carry. It’s loved by the pilots and the crew that maintain the old airframes. It’s the Huey.
- Includes military UH-1H (or German UH-1D) and civilian Bell 205 A-1 models
- Highly accurate flight model (using a separate module to correct the limited helicopter flight model of FSX). Please note that vortex ring state (VRS) is NOT included because the Huey does not suffer from this dangerous condition.
- Torque induced yaw added
- Stabilized rotor head simulation added
- Control travels in hover and cruise flight corrected
- Tail rotor effectiveness corrected
- Retreating blade stall added
- Control effectiveness depending on hydraulics pressure added
- Highly detailed systems making a realistic (within FSX limitation) use of all checklists possible
- Immersive sound set with many additional sound module for virtual cockpit sounds
- Very detailed external model with many animations
- Fully useable and detailed (±250.000 polygons) virtual cockpit
- All 3D gauges with custom programming
- Extensive manual (checklists available in format for smartphones)
- Easy select of “Cold and dark” and “Ready to go” mode
- Innovative lighting systems (including steerable searchlight)
- Created with the help of German Bundeswehr pilots
Awards / Reviews:
Conclusion by the PC Pilot Magazine - Issue Sept/Okt 2011:
"Visually Aerosoft`s Huey looks great. The flight model is realistic and the virtual cockpit is functional. Although some systems are not fully replicated in detail, this simulation is still great to fly."
