Freeware X-Plane scenery HeliAlpes to be released soon

The new scenery, which is centered around helicopter operations, is the joint effort of passionate community members.

As it usually is. Passion is what moves a lot of teams and projects inside our hobby and this project is not any different.

From the minds and craftmanship of Poopy, Pilote Virtuel, Auxence Cappe, Azragod and many others, HeliAlpes promises to deliver quite a quantity of helipads and other landing areas for helicopters – around 40 of them. The area, which covers a portion of the French West Alps, also includes rescue and slingloading scenarios.

To be able to do so, the team had to patch Ortho4XP tiles in order to flatten some of the areas. This means the scenery will only work if you use Ortho4XP.

All the objects included were developed by the team, which, again, shows great passion and dedication from the community.
