The iconic tandem rotor helicopter, our high quality model is full of extreme detail and outstanding features!
The highly recognizable twin-engine, tandem rotor heavy-lift Ch-47 Chinook entered service in the early 1960s. With a top speed of 170 knots, it was faster than many contemporary utility and attack helicopters of that era. The Chinook is one of a very few aircraft from that period, such as the C-130 Hercules and the UH-1 Iroquois, that is still in production and front line service.
Improved and more powerful versions of the CH-47 have been developed since the helicopter entered service. The U.S. Army's first major design leap was the now-common CH-47D, which entered service in 1982. Improvements from the CH-47C included upgraded engines, composite rotor blades, a redesigned cockpit to reduce pilot workload, improved and redundant electrical systems, an advanced flight control system and improved avionics.
We are pleased to offer the CH-47D Chinook for FSX! The CH-47D depicted in this package is a highly detailed replica of its real-life counterpart.
With high quality exterior and interior textures, hundreds of animated 3D gauges, a high definition soundset, and a working AFCS (automatic flight control system), this rendition of the successful Chinook will be as close as most of us will ever get to the real thing!
