Helicopters are very popular in Microsoft Flight Simulator. Although the sim comes without by default, the community has already developed a few. Now, a few days before Christmas, two more helicopters have been released: Native-Helicopter Sikorsky H34 and UH-1H Huey - Iroquois - both freeware, available on Flightsim.to!
UH-1H Huey - Iroquois
The Bell UH-1 Iroquois - often referred to simply as the Huey - is a light utility helicopter developed by Bell Helicopter for the United States Army. The helicopter was the first turbine-powered helicopter in the U.S. Armed Forces. Originally designed as a helicopter to evacuate wounded personnel, it was modified for other missions during its long service. The helicopter flew its first mission in the Vietnam War. Download here.
