I have flown the Cerasim Bell222B in P3D, and it works fine.  I say this because if you buy the heli, it will say "compatible with FSX SP2 with Acceleration only".  It does work in P3D though, so go get one.  ($25.45 USD)

Yes, thank you Jeff. The Cerasim Bell222 works in P3d.
So do also the other Cerasim helicopters Bell212 and Bell412EP in the BWEP fleet.

Sue,
thank you. I`m glad you like it.
I always loved the shape of the Bell222. So it was a great pleasure to paint it in the BWEP Colors and put it into the fleet.

I recall not to long after the B-222 was on the market I was getting ready to fly at Pensacola Regional and one came in to the field and asked ground control for permission to air taxi to the helipad area.  Ground Controller replied, "Cleared as requested Pretty Little Helicopter!".   The are very easy on the eyes.
Later,

Another well rendered skin for B222 Klaus!  ;)

By the way Spud, I wonder if that GC would still make that "pretty little..." radio call remark if he instead hears both Stringfellow Hawke saying "Switching to guns and hellfire!" and Dom Santini replies, "She's armed and ready!" and "the Lady" Airwolf is closing in at Mach 1...He'll probably snap out his wits ;D ;D ;D


Flying a helicopter - the most fun you can have with your hand between your legs and not go blind.

Thank yo all. I'm glad you like this bird.

Yeah, a 222 was the Airwolf and I believe it will ever be remembered as Airwolf.
I loved the tv-series.... :)

Speaking of TV series or movies for that matter.  It seems that Hollywood is convinced that a helo can not take off or land without coming to a near hover and making a 180° turn as it decends to a touch down or flys away on T.O.   ::)

 They're just burning off air speed...     Kidding aside, Aussiecop (remember him?)  taught Club Dodo to do that if we needed to lose some speed to land.  As for Hollywood, who knows.

A bit out-of-topic post just for the heck of it and for those curious: The fastest record helicopter speed unofficially recorded is 255 knots with the experimental Eurocopter X3 to date but it's a hybrid with twin props to boost forward flight speed (video link): https://youtu.be/PQNIXxl76qI. Back in the 80s when more TV series became popularized, the viewing public was mesmerized by what Tinseltown put up on the TV screens..among is a super chopper than can fly with the speed of sound (really???) ::) But those who know something better about traditional rotary wing design and aerodynamics know that isn't possible due to limiting factors like dissymetry of lift and retreating blade stall. At least, 240-Robert and Chopper One were more realistic..and Blue Thunder to some extent.. :D

Now in relation to the thread topic, when the X3 or more better designs become mainstream combining greater speed and hovering capabilities, inspecting something long and undulating like the BWEP pipeline with low-altitude NOE (nap of earth) maneuvers would probably take less than half the time than a traditional helo  ;)

I am of course talking about real life helo ops.  There are, of course, some circumstances that would require a rotation about the vertical axis while landing but it sure not a manuver a competent helo drive would use on every landing like the movies, TV seem to show.  Notice on documentries, particularly military, the pilots maintain a smooth, straight approach to a hover then touchdown.  That is the most critical power requirement phase for a helo and unecessary manuvers only increase the chance of an accident.
Although its been a 'few' years that was the way I was trained and instructed students in the U.S.N.  Having instructed both fixed and roatary wing it has always bugged me the way Hollywood thinks it has to 'improve' on things so they look 'exicting'.
