AirlandFS is a physics library that simulates helicopter behaviors by applying rigid body physics to Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 . Originally released for FSX and Prepar3D as Helicopter Total Realism (HTR) it is currently used by flight schools, military training centers as well as thousands of Flight Simmers around the world.
Current Helicopters featuring AirlandFS
- Robinson 44 Raven
- Native H-60 Project
- Mil Mi-2
- SA342 Gazelle
- UH-1 C Huey Gunship
- UH-1H Huey Iroquois
- Airbus H125 Helicopter Project
- Mosquito XE HelicopterProject
- Cabri G2
DUE TO SIM UPDATE 7 RUDDER AND COLLECTIVE MIGHT NOT WORK CORRECTLY - PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU TURN OFF ALL AUTO ASSISTS AS SHOWN IN THIS VIDEO
NEW AIRLANDFS HELICOPTER FLIGHT SCHOOL ON YOUTUBE CLICK HERE !
PLEASE READ THE README FOR UPDATED INSTRUCTIONS
THIS NEW VERSION NEEDS TO FIND THE COMMUNITY FOLDER, THE EASIEST WAY IS TO PLACE AIRLANDFS IN THE COMMUNITY FOLDER.
IN ORDER TO AUTOMATICALLY LOAD THE PROFILE WHEN AN HELICOPTER IS LOADED THE PROFILE MUST BE NAMED airlandFS_XXX.cfg where XXX is the helicopter ATC name (i.e. airlandFS_R44.cfg)
I suggest developers to put such profiles in the same folder where all the other cfgs are so they will update when you update them
I HATE THIS SOFTWARE.. IT NEVER WORKS
Airland 16 day(s) ago
Sorry to hear that, it works for most users...
If it does not work for you, you can use the native flight model we provided with the FREE Robinson 44 and other payware helicopters.
It is not fair to rate badly for free sofware where people work for free for your enjoyment, luckily most users also understand that...
Strangely my joystick input doesn't translate when AirlandFS is running. Any ideas? Joystick forwad, nothing. Joystick to the sides or back, nothing. Turning off AirlandFS fixes it.

same here let me know if you found a fix
Dromeda 20 day(s) ago
Try running SPAD.neXt and setting up (or downloading) a profile for your flight controls. This was my fix in similar situations.
Well I love the old Huey & the work you guys have put in - & the UH-60 too. Enjoy - I gave you special mention in the video description https://youtu.be/dxw_TGBbCFQ
is this program no longer needed since Sim Update 11 came out today and now they included helicopters?
Bradnell 5 month(s) ago
You still need Airland to fly any of the older heli's after SU 11.
(Like the HCG Cabri, R44, H125, Huey and such)
They won't use the MS physics until the devs convert them over to the MS flight model. (If they do at all)

It's still considerably better than the default helicopter engine - still requires decent FMs either way.
Pretty good software but will be not needed once helicopter add on comes out in 40th anniversary patch
I see a lot of issues here. Guess Ill wait for Asobo helicopters.
i can not open airlandfs...
I cannot seem to find an answer or solution here as to why AirlandFS is making the blades of the H145 disappear, or appear static when I load the profile?
How do I fix this?
GGCH_BOOMer 5 month(s) ago
I contacted HPG about that. I received this answer : Airland support is not currently where we'd like it to be and we consider it unsupported at the moment. We believe our flight model has matured to a point Airland is no longer necessary.
NeosDumb 5 month(s) ago
Fair enough, I did notice they have now added auto-stabilization to their flight model.
Had a lot of fun with this, but. It seems to have stopped working with the H125. Can't fly more than a few minutes until the helicopter gets flipped over as if by an invisible hurricane
Bitdefender reports this file has a virus and has quarantined the .exe. The reported virus is: Gen:Variant. Barys.337561
Update: BitDefender has updated their data base and AirlandFS now works as advertised. Apparently it was a false positive.
opcris 7 month(s) ago
I can confirm that. Started today - until now it was OK. Is there any explanation? thx!
RGP1942 7 month(s) ago
I have the same thing.
The file E:\AirLandFS\AirlandFS Beta 1.5\AirlandFS.exe is infected with Gen:Variant.Barys.337561 and was moved to quarantine. It is recommended that you run a System Scan to make sure your system is clean.
Hawkeye53 7 month(s) ago
Same here. I hadn''t flown a helocopter in a couple weeks and AirlandFS worked fine then. Bitdefender did not have an issue with it when I installed it.
Not sure how it could be infected now and not when I installed it.
Airland 7 month(s) ago
Probably a false positive from BitDefender... will investigate this but with 50k downloads this would be strange....
Airland 7 month(s) ago
Redownloaded from flightsim.to. No issues with Windows Defender, I filed a false positive claim to Bit Defender, hope they will update their database soon...
ヘリコプターの操縦は難しいです。AirlandFS_UH-60.cfg がなかなか見つかりませんでした。UH-60M￥AirlandFS 1.5￥Profiles￥AirlandFS_UH-60.cfg にあります。説明に書いてあるとありがたいです。
Why when I start AirlandFS it hides the blades for H145? Is it a bug?
netguru 7 month(s) ago
Same thing happens here today with the 1.5 beta
How do you make AirlandFS automatically load Robinson R44's profile (latest version as of 2022-07-31)? What's the monitored path/filename that will autoload when the flight begins?
theguyfrommars92 7 month(s) ago
its in the folder that the helicopter is in.
I don't usually mess with cfg files, but would like very much to put a profile in for the new Cabri G2. How do I do that? I can find the aircraft cfg file for the G2, but I'm not sure if I'm copying and pasting it to airlandfs, or just creating a cfg file with the ATC name to go into the Airlandfs Profile folder. Open to any basic instructions about how to do this (which, once explained, will probably result in me head slapping myself for not getting it.)
White_Wolf 8 month(s) ago
If you want the profile to load automatically, name it:
and put it in the folders
If you want to load the profile manually, name it whatever you want and put it in profiles folder within the airland fs install folder
I've tried AirlandFS for months and multiple resets and uninstalls, reinstalls, and I'm still unable to get it to load. I have followed steps correctly, but when I double click Airland FS app icon in the folder, it asks if I want to run or cancel, I will "run anyway", the hour glass appears briefly, then nothing. It has done this for quite some time and I can not find anyone reporting this or a solution. Can someone please help? All I need is for program to run while MSFS is running. I will have MSFS operating, attempt to open AirlandFS, and nothing. Please help.
andbjerk87 7 month(s) ago
I have the exact same problem as you. AirlandFs 1.5Beta wount run on my computer. It wount even start. I don't know what to do!? Can anyone please help?
theguyfrommars92 7 month(s) ago
i start mine by manu. going to the folder for that helicopter airlands FS profile and it auto starts.
when someone gives their time to you be greatfull.god bless you
airlands keeps crashing when i load the hcg-cabri-g2 profile all others are ok
What's happening with the R44 and H125, can we expect any further development/bug fixes in the foreseeable future?
Airland 9 month(s) ago
Yes definitely, we all do this on our free time, so it might take some time to get an update ready...
White_Wolf 9 month(s) ago
That's good to know. Would be great to see the broken FLI on the H125 fixed. Look forward to seeing where they go next.
