Cult helicopters fly in the simulator
You have probably already seen one of the helicopters as we have faithfully reproduced them for our simulator. The Bell UH-1D is known worldwide under the name Huey and was also used by the German Armed Forces. The Bell flew its mission in the Vietnam War, which is why it appears in numerous documentaries and films about the events of the time. The light transport and rescue helicopter (Search & Rescue helicopter, SAR for short) is also known and popular thanks to the series “Die Rettungsflieger”, which takes place in Hamburg. In the TV series, the Bell UH-1D is not called Huey, but is lovingly called Anneliese.
Because of the haunting rotor noises of the helicopter, it can be heard and identified from a distance. In our flight simulator, too, you will hear the typical Bell tapping, which has also earned it the nickname “Carpet Beater”.
