Eagle Rotorcraft Simulations is pleased to announce that we have switched to our very own domain name, which removes the “.webs” subdomain from the site URL. The whole site is now being hosted on the same server as the forums, thanks to our gracious forum host, Charles. We have also taken advantage of being able to now use PHP on any part of the website by making some small changes to the appearance of the site to freshen it up and make it more modern. If you experience any issues with the new site, please let us know ASAP via the contact page. Select “Website Problems” from the subject drop down menu.

We are happy to announce a new project we are working on: the Enstrom 280FX Shark. The 280FX will be released for FS9 and FSX, both native to their sims. This project is Alan Devin’s, which was never finished. We recently obtained the source files and are bringing this wonderful helicopter back to flight simulator. We are also working on an Enstrom F-28F that was given to us by someone else. This model will be for FS9 and FSX as well.
Over the past few months, we have been listening to comments on our FSX EMB120 and we have been made aware of a few bugs. We are pleased to announce that we have released an updated version of our popular Embraer. To download this great new release, visit our EMB120 page.

Today, Eagle Rotorcraft Simulations releases its first add-on, the Embraer EMB120 as a native FSX model. It is an FSX upgrade to the FS2004 model by Erick Cantu. It features bump maps, spec maps, FSX specific animations, and stable flight dynamics. We hope you enjoy this wonderful new add-on!

We have successfully exported the Bell 222 as a native FSX model. Our team is currently working on getting the model set up and displaying properly in X. We are still hard at work on the FS2004 version. Our goal is to release the FS2004 base pack first, with the FSX version following. We will then release “add-on packs” over time to expand our releases. These will include new models, configurations, and repaints.
We are pleased to announce that we have opened our hangar doors. Our goal is to provide you with the best freeware helicopter add-ons. Our team spends months developing and fine tuning our releases. We hope you enjoy what we release in the near future!
