Hype Performance Group’s H160 review

A high-tech helicopter with detailed visuals and superb systems

Regular readers of PC Pilot, especially rotor heads, may recall the review of Hype Performance Group's (HPG’s) H145 helicopter back in Issue 143, where it was presented with a Platinum Award. It was very innovative, detailed, immersive and just plain fun to fly. So, what on earth could HPG offer in its new H160 that could possibly surpass it?

The H160 can be operated in a range of missions. An action pack is on the drawing boards for early 2024.

Airbus Helicopters

Airbus Helicopters is, not surprisingly, the helicopter design and manufacturing arm of Airbus SE. While this company’s heritage can be traced via mergers and buyouts over more than 70 years under brands such as Aerospatiale and Eurocopter, it rebranded to its current badge in 2014. Today, the company boasts an impressive range of rotary-wing aircraft across the civilian, military, luxury, utility and medical sectors, with crew and passenger capacity ranging from five to 31.
