Environment

  • A big chunk of our Seattle environment – including Downtown and the Space Needle – forms part of the Pre-Order Beta.

Free Flight

  • Pick a chopper, and go! This easy-access mode gives players looking to get straight into the cockpit the chance to do just that.
  • Choose from a selection of helicopters included in the Pre-Order Beta, and you’ll be placed in our Seattle terrain, all set to go!

Single Missions

  • The Best Laid Plans – Play a scenario plucked straight out of the middle of our career mode, and learn a little more about Larkin Aviation, and the kind of contracts they’re having to take on to keep their business afloat.
  • Sling your Hook – Shift construction materials above Seattle by sling-line, all procedurally generated, so the mission is different each time you fly!

Training

  • Simple Flight – If you know next to nothing about helicopters, but just want to get flying, this is the training mission for you, presenting players with some handy hints along the way.
  • Start Up & Shut Down – We know that just starting up the helicopter can be a challenge, so we’ve included our fully-voiced tutorial, which helps to show you how to do just that.
  • Basic Manoeuvres – Learn the basics of getting your chopper from A to B, by flying though a number of check-point courses, which introduce the principles of level-flight, banking, changing altitude, and more!
