Could Milviz be bringing their helicopters to X-Plane?

Nov 03, 2018 | by Sérgio Costa
Milviz, one of the most notorious developers of helicopters for the ESP (FSX/P3D) platform released their first X-Plane addon. Can helicopters be next?

Milviz CH-47 Chinook for P3D

The company has always been one of those that helicopter fans have been eager to see bringing their products to X-Plane. They have done a fantastic job with FSX and P3D but, unfortunately, the limitations on these platforms are always something of concern.

The release of the T310R is a huge milestone for them and an indication that they might be working on bringing other products to the sim.

Their rotary wing catalog is quite interesting and, although it overlaps with other developers (such as with the 407) it would be very interesting to see their MD530 or the CH-47 Chinook (heads up, Mr. Bel Geode!) come to live in X-Plane.

This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship between Milviz and X-Plane and, hopefully, the final push for other developers (such as Nemeth) to jump the fence as well.

Fingers crossed, folks!
