One of the loading screens mentions using sailplanes and helicopters to get hard to reach aerocaches. I'm pretty sure they're in the works.

Schweizers.. Schweizers.. Schweizers..! Otherwise, have fun dealing with 50 or so forum posts complaining about dynamic roll-overs in the Robinson R-22.

Schweizer would be OK.
But please no Robinson.

Best would be an MD 500, EC120, EC135 or maybe an Agusta.

Robbies do love to bite you in the rear, especially new pilots. I'd definitely get behind the MD500 or even an MD600N

Okay- on a loading screen it sais you need to use seaplanes or helicopters to get some aerocaches, AND in some hangars on Kona you see helicopters. I'd love the Lynx- Y NO BRITISH AIRCRAFT?

I guess, as Britain asked for a long-range fighter, we got the Mustang. While frankly sucked. We put a Merlin in it, the same engine as early marks of Spitfire, it was good. The Americans found out and hoarded them all. But I mean British make of aircraft.

Yeah, it seems kind of odd that there's a Zero and a Mustang, yet no British or even German warplanes, which were undeniably better.

For me, any brand of chopper will do as long as it can carry a couple of people, a little cargo, and HAS A COCKPIT.

But yeah, a Spitfire would be an excellent addition.

Well, Mustang was worse but Zero caused alot of pain for early marks of Spitfire. But it IS in Hawaii.

A6M's were one trick ponies. Once the one from the Aleutians was restored to an airworthy status, it's weaknesses were discovered and exploited thoroughly.

109's also had a nasty habit of biting new pilots in the on landing due to their narrow-set landing gear.

Then, you had the lovely Gloster Meteor that got quite a few of it's new pilots killed because of it's less than an hour endurance on internal fuel only.

Still, game needs more GA aircraft than anything else. You want flight sims with combat? Spend $10 on IL-2.

I think you'll find that MS are following the theme of Hawaii, and as such it has the warbirds that were involved in the pearl harbour affair..and some present craft that are found in hawaii... I think we will find that Alaska will bring us planes that are common to Alaska.

So, look around hawaii and nag MS for planes that are found there... power gliders for one.
