Free Flight

Pick a chopper, and go! This easy-access mode gives players looking to get straight into the cockpit the chance to do just that.

Choose from the entire selection of choppers included with Take On Helicopters, and you’ll be placed in our Seattle terrain, all set to go!

Career Mode

Harry Larkin was a well known name in the Seattle aviation sector; his passing came as a bitter loss to many, and a business opportunity for a few. Harry left behind the business he spent his whole life building, and his two sons, Joe and Tom.

Built up over decades, Larkin Aviation has fallen on tough times – now only weeks away from closure. The Larkin brothers face an uncertain future. Together, they must take on contracts and competitors; together, they take on helicopters!

Challenges

Challenges offer the player quick and varied helicopter gameplay, with procedurally generated goals, meaning each mission is a little different each time you play it!

Time Trials

Time trials are a great way to see the most interesting parts of our terrains, as you race through the air trying to beat the clock!

Editor

Our powerful 2D editor, in combination with a huge range of vehicles and characters – and the ability to create and import your own – opens up a near-limitless potential for making custom mission, campaigns and more!

Helicopters

Take On Helicopters introduces the player to three distinct classes of helicopter: light, medium and heavy. Each has a flight model suited to the characteristics of its class, meaning – aside from any other external factors (like wind or the weight of your cargo) – each helicopter itself can be tuned to feel distinctive.

Within each class, we’ve got multiple variants – including (at least) one armed set up – that are designed to perform different roles. Equipment such as winches, sling-lines, fast rope hooks, external cameras, and so on, help to generate a wide range of things to do across a number of different helicopters!

Environments

Take On Helicopters features two huge terrains: Seattle, a 60x60km chunk of North America, and South Asia, a 120x120km terrain populated with vegetation and urban structures. There’s also a small terrain, an oil platform, which is great for smaller scenarios!
