X-Plane 11 will bring us an S-76

X-Plane 11 is almost here and it brings quite a few nice additions. One of them is a brand new helicopter. Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to the S-76.

It's a complete surprise, but a very nice one. We will have a default new helicopter to fly in the new version of X-Plane.

From the screenshots (which you can find in the official website), the model looks amazing and very detailed.

The S-76 is one of the most sought-out helicopters in any sim and a great helicopter for VIP, tourism or off-shore transportation.

The X-Plane version will come with 4 liveries to chose from but the community will come up with a lot more in the near future for sure.

Seeing a new helicopter is a great sign and seems to be a sign that the X-Plane team is aware of the helicopter community. Way to go, Laminar Research.
