Aerospatiale SA315B Lama project gets improved and needs your help

The project, which started as freeware, is upping its game and the team is in need of help to further develop the helicopter.

Aerospatiale SA315B Lama for X-Plane

Back in April 2017, Philip Ubben started showing his SA315B Lama project on the .org forums. Back then, Philip wanted to release it as a freeware project.

He has been working hard on the Lama since then and, some time ago, he got, as he calls it, some “fantastic reinforcements”.

The project expanded and the team is now looking at a payware release instead of a freeware one, as stated in one of their latest updates. And, probably, well-deserved, as they have been working on it for so long and the helicopter does look great.

Nonetheless, they need our help:

If a user has flying experience on a real Alouette II, Alouette III or Lama, please contact me! I can still get input from pilots to verify my flight-model.

If you are able to help Philip, you can contact him on the .org forums (you’ll need to be logged in). If you are unable to login (or unwilling to create an account) at the .org, please contact me and I will do my best to get you in touch with him.

That’s a sweet looking Lama. Let’s help him make it a great flying one as well!


Thank you to Andreas Enbacka, member of our Facebook Group, for the heads up!
