Expand your pilot’s skill and discover new feelings. Try the HELICOPTER !

This is a real new challenge for most of us and I decided to open a new Special Operations Section dealing with rotorcrafts.

I suggest to all SPA pilots interested by rotorcrafts to visit the web site of HOVERCONTROL HELICOPTER FLIGHT SIMULATION at:

Helicopters are possibly much more fun than many heavy jets people are used to flying, but for some reason they are simply skipped or forgotten by most. It is a truly unique experience to fly one of them above a beautiful landscape, simulate a rescue, fire and medical emergency or have some fun transporting virtual passengers.
The reasons simmers present for preferring a fixed-wing aircraft over a rotative-wing aircraft can vary: some find them boring, some find them difficult to fly and some haven't even tried them. This SPA helicopter department is for all people who are willing to give rotorheads a try and discover this amazing new experience!

First of all, you may wish to learn the basic helicopter control (FS9 & FSX). Here are links to two very good tutorials:
SPA Helicopter Tour number 1 - The California Coast

You'll enjoy breathtaking views of the coast, oceans and cliffs as you fly along the coast.

MapCalifornia North Coast
The region's Pacific Ocean coast stretches from San Francisco Bay northwards to Humboldt Bay and on to the border of Oregon. The coastline is often inaccessible, and includes rocky cliffs and hills, streams and tide pools.
The southern portion of the North Coast is largely urbanized while the rest is mostly rural. The more remote northern areas are often referred to as the being located "behind the Redwood Curtain. Notable seaside beaches can be found at Marin Headlands and Point Reyes National Seashore in the south, with innumerable examples of remote or less used beaches north of the SF Bay Area.
The grandeur of the redwoods can be experienced from Muir Woods National Monument in the south to Humboldt Redwoods State Park and the Avenue of the Giants in the north.

California Central Coast
The region is known primarily for agriculture and tourism. Major crops include lettuce, strawberries, and artichokes. The Salinas Valley is one of the most fertile farming regions in the United States. Tourist attractions include Cannery Row in Monterey, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the theatres, galleries and white sand beaches of Carmel-by-the-Sea, the golf courses of Pebble Beach and the Monterey Peninsula, the rugged coastline of Big Sur and Hearst Castle in San Simeon.
The area is not densely populated. The largest city in the region is Salinas, with approximately 150,000 people. University of California campuses are found in Santa Cruz and Santa Barbara, on the extreme north and south edges of the region respectively. California State University, Monterey Bay, founded in 1994, uses facilities donated when Fort Ord was converted from military to civilian uses. California Polytechnic State University, in San Luis Obispo, was founded in 1901.

California South Coast
The South Coast is a term used in the West Coast region of the United States to refer to both the south Pacific Coast of California and the adjacent resort and residential communities.
It refers for the most part to the Southern California coastal counties of Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego due to the cosmopolitan "SoCal" atmosphere and location of major urban coastal centres. Of these counties only the western two thirds of San Diego, most of Los Angeles and all of Orange are included.

However, some sources include the coastal half of Ventura, western part of Riverside, and south western part of San Bernardino Counties because of their proximity to the Pacific Coast and because they are in the same bio-region and watershed.
