VSkyLabs, Guimbal Cabri G2 Helicopter

VSkyLabs has officially announced ongoing development of the Guimbal Cabri G2 helicopter for X-Plane 11.  The project was previously designated as a planned general aerospace project, the status has now obviously been updated.  Already in an advanced stage of development, release is expected no later than September of this year.

The Guimbal Cabri G2 is produced by Hélicoptères Guimbal and is a light two seat design particularly well suited to flight training operations.  As such, it’s a fantastic machine for fixed wing conversion training.

Moreover and on another note, with regards to the teaser image, it sure looks like another capture from the upcoming PropStrike Studio Quatam River project, see our post from May 25, 2018 to learn more.

Anyways, check out some project highlights below.

  • Highly detailed and realistic simulation of the Guimbal Cabri G2 Helicopter.
