Helicopters with Pontoons
« on: May 05, 2018, 11:57:33 PM »
I only have found one helicopter with pontoons and it is the  BELL 47G & SIOUX H-13.  It is not on the approved list.  I have done a lot of searching and still this is all I have found.  Any links or suggestions would be appreciated.

You can use the Milviz 407, just inflate the emergency floats and fly with them inflated.

Here's a video I made (Oct. 2011) with my pontoon chopper. 
Let's go down to the waterline ... 

Enjoy.   :)

The Dodosim 206 has float/pontoon versions too but it's payware ang among the most realistic choppers (flight dynamics-wise, if important for you) in the FSX/P3D genre.. 8)


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

"Bell 206B III" by Eagle Rotorcraft Simulations, looks pretty good
and I think it works well in P3Dv4

I noticed that the Cera Sim 412, 222, 222b, etc are not listed when I scan the tour aircraft.  Are they allowed as helicopters to fly?  I have them from when I was flying another adventures va.  If possible I would like to use them.
