TAKE ON HELICOPTERS: Meet us at Flight Simmers Weekend!

Bohemia Interactive, the award-winning independent Czech development studio, is excited to announce that key team members from the Take On Helicopters development team will be at the 2011 Flight Simmers Weekend in Holland.
This weekend, a couple of the Take On Helicopters design team are heading down to The Netherlands to demonstrate Take On Helicopters, as part of FSWeekend 2011! The event welcomes enthusiastic flight-simmers to the Aviodrome at Lelystad Airport on November 5th & 6th, 2011. Project Lead (and proud Dutch national), Joris-Jan van ‘t Land will travel along with Executive Producer, Lukás Milácek, and demonstrate Take On at the Simware Simulations booth. The guys will be using a full version of the Flight Link system, so if you’d like to step into the cockpit, head on down!
More details about the event to be found on the official website of the event and the aviodrome.
Following the October 27th digital release of Take On Helicopters, Bohemia Interactive is pleased to be able to confirm two patches are in the works and will be released once they have passed testing.
The first patch provides tweaks to various systems, but focuses chiefly upon tuning the Career, its finances and some of the contracts.
The second patch will be a larger update in which the aim is to also do some tweaks to the flight model, based on user feedback. These changes won’t be trivial and will affect all gameplay, so the release will be dependent on successful testing prior to launch. Further information is available on the official website.
There are also plans for a beta patch system whereby people can test out the beta patches to be involved directly in the tuning and testing process to help the customers ensure their voices are heard and their input is counted! More details will be announced in due time
