An iconic helicopter for X-Plane
One of the most recognisable helicopters of the past 60 years has been developed for X-Plane 11 by Nimbus Simulation Studios – the iconic UH-1 Huey.
The UH-1B Huey development started in 1952 to meet the US Army need for a medical evacuation and general purpose utility helicopter. It was originally designated the HU-1 and this is where it gets its nickname - the Huey. It became an iconic symbol of the Vietnam war of the 1960s where more than 7,000 were used to transport troops as well as evacuate the injured.
