Freeware X-Plane scenery HeliAlpes version 2 released

The second iteration of the scenery brings new landing zones and a few corrections and improvements.

HeliAlps version 2 for X-Plane

Earlier this year, the good folks at HeliSimu France released the freeware scenery HeliAlpes, which aims at bringing a set of realistic places to perform helicopter operations in the French West Alps.

The team reproduced pretty much all landing zones that exist in the real world, which include some helipads, helicopter stations, rescue centers, slingloading areas, among others. The team initially released the scenery with 40 of these points of interest.

Earlier this week, they have released version 2. In this version we get a few more landing zones and some fixes and improvements to the scenery.
