    For the first time, you’re able to visit the most remote and beautiful national parks on the planet by organizing heli-sightseeing tours. We’re happy to present you the Sparrow Helicopter!

    Sparrow Helicopter is available for all players from level 8.

    Helicopter Pad Level 1



    Helicopter Pad Level 1 is required for Sparrow maintenance. It can be purchased from the store for 200 coins.
    Helicopter Pad is both a “hangar” and “runway” for a helicopter, and is built on the airport side of your city.
    A new type of passengers — tourists — are required for helicopter flights. You can find out more about Tourists, Tourist Buildings, and Tourist Terminal here.
    Moreover, a special Fuel H is required for Helicopter. You can find more information about Fuel Station H and fuel H production here.
    You will also need additional items to send the flight off which can be produced in the Resource Base. Find out more about item production here.

    If one of your helicopters breaks down, it’s a good idea to build a Repair Base H where it can be fixed:

    Hi, so I find the Fishing Store is 1% Coins within 1 radius & the Optical Store is 2% Coins within 1 radius [above says passenger production]

    Nice guide! -t

    Those who want to start doing Helicopter flights keep in your mind that you need thousands of these items:
    Microcircuit, Gear, Varnish, Sensor.
    Start to build Resource base if you can build the 6 also upgraded it will help you but if you cannot upgraded just build the 6 buildings.
    Good Luck All (y)
     
  8. They changed this flight to 2 minutes FYI
    Also only 50 flights needed for three stars, as opposed to 100 previously :)

    Technically Sparrow is profitable... Below are my notes... Once I noticed no real difference between 30 flights and 100 flights, I slowed down, I update when I need to rush flights... but I got stuck for another month on Silver, so these days I'm rushing planes not helos.

    Anyway, below is destination, the # of flights to create the average, and average profitability of the flights. Note, this assumes you are using the 5 fuel in 2 minutes only. If you use 18/10, I think you immediately become unprofitable ... though that may be an exaggeration because I think Snowdonia still gives you like 0.5 profit per flight using 18/10... but seriously, it must be the 5/2 to minimize the hurt.

    Yellowstone-100 flights-Avg Profit 7.6 coins
    Lake Baikal-52 flights- Avg Profit 9.5 coins
    Snowdonia-50 flight-Avg Profit 9.4
    Fiordland-50 flights-Avg Profit 9.0
    Banff-50 flights-Avg Profit 7.5 coins
    Iguazu Falls-49 flights-Avg Profit -39.8
    Angel Falls-31 flights-Avg Profit -56.2
    Victoria Falls-30 flights-Avg Profit -64.5
    Niagra Falls-24 flights- Avg Profit -108.8
    Rideau Falls-23 flights-Avg Profit -164.7
    Awaiting $$ to waste on Goldfinch, but have 100 of each item for Goldfinch once I have one...
