Emerald Scenery Design have just released their authentic Bell 47 soundpack for both FSX and Prepar3d.
After being in development for the past few months, this is the first authentic Bell 47 soundpack available for simmers. If you’re unsure of the realism, Chris Britton, the developer has said that these sounds have been recorded on-site from both Bell 47 D-1 and G-2 aircraft, bringing much needed realism to the sim.
You can read his story below.
“As a scenery developer, this project was a major change (and learning experience) from what I’m use to. In late 2014, my father came into possession of a Bell 47 D-1, (like the M*A*S*H helicopter) which we used to run tours out of our watersports business in Navarre, FL. Last year, it had occurred to me that anyone had yet to make an authentic soundset for Flysimware’s Bell 47 helicopter. Having access to the aircraft on almost a daily basis, I decided to take this dilemma into my own hands and learn the basics of soundpack creation. Over a year, I toyed around with different sound packs, dissected them, read documents, and learned what made everything click. Eventually I was confident enough to take on this project. A few weeks into production I was faced with an issue that brought production to a complete standstill. Luckily, after a week of searching, I was able to travel to and get my hands on a Bell 47 G-2 to finish up the remaining recordings. After a few weeks of editing, I present to you the first authentic Bell 47 soundpack for FSX/P3D. I do hope this addon brings you many hours of enjoyable flight time in your Bell 47! Thank you for your support!!”
