Welcome to Flight1.com! We have many great aviation products for FSX/FS9 and P3D.
Most of our products are available by download for immediate purchase.
The Seahawk received all praises for Flight Simulator helicopter we know about and it did get some of the most favorable reviews we have ever seen. So it was logical to move this product to FSX.
As always we done so with care so all the new features of FSX are being used. We also combined both the Seahawks & Boxer and the Coast Guard version and added 4 more highly detailed ships. To make it easy for you we also created a tool that allows you to use Google Earth to place the ships in any location you like.
The helicopter is easy to fly (as the real one is), you will be in the air in minutes, but it will take many hours before you have mastered all the systems that are simulated in this helicopter. Created with assistance from several Seahawk pilots we are sure the advanced systems work as they are in the real helicopter.
When Microsoft publically releases the SDK that is used for the Acceleration Pack we will adapt this helicopter to use the additional features it offers for helicopters. This will be a free update.
All the aircraft files have been reworked to be fully FSX standard this not a simple port from FS2004! Includes all the latest FSX goodies.
There are seven different models available, not only the different Seahawk models used by the US Navy, but also the export models (Japan, Greece and Spain) are included. The Coast Guard model (Jayhawk) is also included. Fifteen liveries are available.
The flight model is highly accurate and has been flown by many actual Seahawk pilots over the last 2 years. Some tweaks include the new FSX functions, but we decided to maintain the highly stable model that was used in the FS2004 version. Please note that maintaining the correct 'feel' was more important than numbers and data.
The advanced Stability Augmentation System (SAS) is very accurate. Not only will it stabilize your flight, it also includes a highly realistic Hover and Hover Depart mode. Unlike other FS helicopters that 'force' the location using FSUIPC or SimConnect, this system uses sensors to find the location of the helicopter and will use the standard controls to maintain a hover or move the helicopter in any direction.
The AFCS is able to read standard flight plans and have the Seahawk fly them fully automated. Your route is shown on the Navigation Display. Distance and time to fly for each waypoint is also available.
The 68 page extended manual explains all systems and is well illustrated. Even novice helicopter pilots (or novice flight simmers) should be able to use this advanced helicopter after they completed the training flights.
Systems and Automated Flight Control Systems: Learn to setup all systems and start the helicopter. After take-off you will head to a training area to experiment with the navigation system. You will also learn how to fly the helicopter fully automated in terrain following mode.
Advanced navigation: Learn how to have the helicopter fly a route automatically and do a low visibility ILS landing.
Zero visibility manual hover: Learn to hover the helicopter in a fixed location without ANY visibility (no other helicopter in FS can do this)
There are 6 ships included that can be placed in any location using the Shipyard 2 tool.
This tool allows you to select a location for the ships in Google Earth and convert the resulting files into real FSX scenery. Very easy, very advanced and a lot of fun to use. Needs a Deluxe version of FSX!
