The author, Hugo Silvério, is calling all developers to help him finish the project. Right now here these are the planning features:

  • Extensive 2d/3d instruments
  • FMOD sounds
  • Hardcore VR implementation (full flight with no joysticks, or any kind of hardware other than VR itself to fly)
  • FSEconomy compatible with passengers and cargo displayed in the cabin.
  • Different variants of the AS350B B+ and BA.
  • And of course, what ever you guys are willing to help me! since its opensource go to github and help me finalize it!

You can find more information on GitHub.
