Prepar3D 4.2 comes with 2 new helicopters

Feb 12, 2018 | by Sérgio Costa
Prepar3D is just out and, along with a ton of improvements and fixes, it açsp comes with 2 new helicopters for the delight of the rotorheads that use this platform.

Prepar3D v4.2 CH-53

The changelog is huge and, if you look closely, you'll see that we now have access to the CH-53E Super Stallion Marine and Navy variants as well as the MH-60R and MH-60S Seahawk variants.

This is the first update with new helicopters in some time and it's a clear push on Sikorsky Helicopters which is part of Lockheed Martin since 2015.

Let's hope this is a sign that helicopters might be given some much-needed love and the flight dynamics get improved in a near future.
