Philip Ubbem Releases SA 315B Lama Helicopter for X-Plane

Written by on August 25, 2021

In cooperation with Khamsin Studio, Philip Ubbem has recently released a new helicopter rendition for X-Plane 11. This time bringing the SA 315B Lama to the simulator, the helicopter was originally designed for the Indian Air Force to be used in conditions that are present in the Himalayas mountains region.

The addon from Philip Ubbem and Khamsin Studio offers a highly detailed 3D model of the helicopter with PBR and accurate textures for the best immersion while in the skies. Additionally, custom FMOD sounds are present in the addon together with Avitab integration.

Of course, as one would expect from addons nowadays, the developers promise accurate flight dynamics in the feature list as well as good performance or VR compatibility. The complete feature list can be found below in the article.

The helicopter can be purchased through the Store for a price of $32.95 or €28, and while we are no helicopter experts here, Stephen from XPlaneReviews wrote a nice review of the addon just earlier this week, in case you would like to learn more about it.
