Helicopter Sim by Sierra

3D Helicopter Simulator

3D Helicopter Simulator (1987) by Sierra was released in 1987and must have been one of the first sims to support head to head play via a modem. For it's time it looked outstanding with 3 dimensional polygon choppers and scenery. John D. Yarrow got his hands on the 5 1/4" version. It occured to me that some readers might never have seen a 5 1/4" disk so I scanned it in it's full glory : 3D Helicopter Simulator (1987) by Sierra

Microsoft  Flight Simulator 2002

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002

Having avoided the slide show frame rates of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000, but having had a ball in Microsoft Combat Flight Sim 2- I was intrigued to hear that the Microsoft Combat Flight Sim 2 engine was the basis for the new juggernaut. Hopping into my sim-Cessna I decided to take a scenic flight over an area I knew well - Sydney !
