What a top quality C64 simulation this was, but yes I was initially misled by the title. Still it probably would have worked out for the best and my imagination is not a good place to come up with game ideas (trust me on this one).

As far as C64 flight sims go this was easily one of the best, even though it was treacle slow. Later versions of course sped things up and I really liked how you could save your career mode over time and adjust the realism of the simulation. And the idea of flying a giant helicopter was just so cool! Just look at this bad boy in action:

There was also a PlayStation game called Gunship 2000 that I remember liking a bit back in the day but it felt pretty slow compared to the arcadey simulations of the console era around then.
