Cowan Simulation has announced the H125 (previously named the AS350 B3e) is now available for X-Plane 11.

Designed to be compatible with the Vulkan API, the package sports several 4K PBR liveries and is designed to take advantage of X-Plane's native lighting with dynamic reflections and materials.

It comes with collective and cyclic rotor animations, rain effects on the windows, working baggage compartments and a pilot/passengers. Other highlights include FMOD 3D sounds such as rotor-speed vibrational feedback, dynamic blade slap, etc. Special features include a working floats system, a functional spotlight and a Cineflex camera.
