Whirlybirds N2838B Flight Sim


This "38 Bravo" flight sim is the second effort of the Whirlybirds Flight Sim Project. It was carried out by the three man team of Tom Heaverlo, of Iowa, and Jeff Jankovics, of North Carolina, both members of the Bell 47 Helicopter Association, and the creation of the Bell 47 J2A from Lasse Lindh, of Sweden. Lasse has taken two-dimensional elements and sound clips, provided by Jeff, and turned them into a realistic three-dimensional work of art, that performs and sounds like a Bell Model 47J-2 Ranger. For this "38 Bravo" project, Jeff provided three-view drawings, pictures of J's from all conceiveable angles, and sound clips of a real J (from startup to shutdown; they were the recorded sounds of 38 Bravo from several episodes). Jeff worked with Tom for the color, shading and detailing for the "38 Bravo" model. Tom has done numerous repaints of varying aircraft, for some years, and like Jeff has a strong interest in the Bell 47, along with fond memories of the Whirlybirds. Working together, this team from Sweden and the United States has created this beautiful N2838B flight Sim.
