France VFR is back with another airport package for Microsoft Flight Simulator, this time specially dedicated to helicopter pilots flying in the region of Paris. Similarly to what they did last year with a cool selection of 23 local airfields, this time the team has launched 28 helipads and heliports in a single package, located all over the Paris Ile-de-France region.
Our French readers are fortunate to have a team such as France VFR, which consistently puts out great products that greatly enhance the scenery in France with comprehensive customizations. Those who prefer to fly helicopters are now lucky to be able to explore Paris and use a wide selection of real-world helipads, which France VFR has built based on existing private, administrative, historical and hospital heliports and helipads.
Helicopter support will officially be coming to MSFS later this year, bringing with it a few free helicopter models and also the start of a continued introduction of helipads into the default scenery. Jorg Neumann from the MSFS team recently gave an interview to Helisimmer.com where he talked in great detail about this, so be sure to check that out if you’re especially fond of rotorcraft.
With Paris Heliports & Helipads for MSFS, France VFR is offering much-needed real-world locations for virtual pilots to operate their helicopters, which is something that will definitely be appreciated. For example, you can use the recently released H145 Action Pack to simulate medical emergencies in the Paris region, playing the role of a life-saving pilot in an urban environment.
France VFR – Paris Heliports & Helipads is now available for MSFS, priced at €29.90.
