Nimbus Simulation Studios firefighting Huey for X-Plane

Since the release of the Huey for X-Plane, Nimbus has been telling us they would consider a modern, civilian version of the helicopter if the sales were up to their expectations (developing helicopters does cost money and time after all).

Fortunately, it seems we have hit that mark as Nimbus had told us they would probably get into it and we finally got to see an image of the civilian version.

In this case, a firefighting version with an underbelly fire attack system.

Nimbus Simulation Studio has released the on their Facebook Page but they haven’t provided with any other indication or features the civilian version will bring but we have contacted them to know more about the project and, hopefully, get some screenshots of the interior as well.

A couple of months ago ago, the company also released a video showing this version off.
