That will be an exciting addition to the world of flight simulation, bringing a legendary aircraft into the immersive realm of Microsoft Flight Simulator. This helicopter, originating as the Mi-8M in 1975 and evolving into the export-oriented Mi-17-V5, boasts over four decades of service across 60 countries, including use by the United States for special operations forces. Cera Sim’s rendition builds on their experience with an existing P3D5 model (currently on sale 30% OFF), offering a highly detailed and realistic experience for virtual pilots.
This Mi-17 for MSFS should come loaded with features that aviation enthusiasts will appreciate if we check the features already seen in their P3D5 model.
