    А new era has come to Airport City!
    For the first time, you’re able to visit the most remote and beautiful places on the planet such as waterfalls, mountains, and natural reserves by organizing heli-sightseeing tours.

    Follow the quests provided by Victoria the Helicopter pilot, and be the first to learn everything about helicopters!
    New adventures, aircrafts, and buildings await you on level 8.

    Know-How

    Passion For Travel

    New Passengers Type
    [​IMG]
    Tourists
    Tourists are people whose curiosity takes them to the most wondrous places in the world.
    You need to take care of them: provide them with special buildings and make sure you gather your passengers in time for their flights.

    Terminal H:

    Build a Terminal H in your Airport, and this building will increase the maximum number of tourists in your city.
    upload_2017-12-6_21-23-17.png
    Terminal H Level 1, 2, 3, 4

    Terminal H Level 1:

    • Price: 100 coins.

    • Price: 9000 coins;

    Terminal H Level 3:
    • Available from level 22;

    • Price: 65000 coins;
    • Items required for construction: Check-In Terminal x 3 (drops from guest planes: Jet, Delta), Metal Detector Wand x 3 (drops from guest planes: Jet, Delta), Info Board x 3 (drops from guest planes: Delta, Jumbo).

    As soon as your Terminal H is ready to function, it’s a good idea to build special Tourist Buildings in your city that will produce tourists required for helicopter flights. Please note that the Tourist Buildings require a certain amount of current population number (not the maximum population) to be built.

    Question though: You say that the buildings has population requirements of 120, 380 and so on - upwards. THat cant be true? 120 population is crazy, not to mention 950 for the last building. I dident have that much to spare but was able to build the buildings anyway. So what is the actual requirement?
     
  5. good job so far, thank you! :)

    they mean total population. So you just need to have that amount in total, before being able to purchase.

    @Gt city - what about creating a new blue heading, on the main home page, for all things relating to helicopters e.g. threads, guides to helicopter destinations, collections etc?

    I'm not even going to look at helicopters. I already have a to do list that frightens me - this is a development too far for me.

    Maybe in 100 years......
