The Airport City Fleet of Helicopters - The Game Store, The Discount Supersales, The Special Events
This user guide is divided into three sections, the first deals with helicopters purchased from the game store, the second deals with helicopters purchased during the discount supersales, while the third deals with helicopters obtained through the special events. The first option will always be available through your game, the second option will only become available during discount supersales, with the third option you will need to obtain a special red helicopter from the mysterious airplane bonus.

There are three helicopter class types for sale, Standard Class, S1 Class and S2 Class. The standard class helicopters fly at normal speeds, whereas the S1 and S2 class helicopters fly at increased speeds of 10% and 30%, to fifteen designated flight destinations (five destinations each), but the helicopters will come at a price, with gold tokens and silver tokens being needed. The helicopters also fly to special event destinations, last year the event took place in November 2019. There are also Special Red Class Helicopters, these can not be purchased, but can only be received randomly as awards, they increase your helicopter flight income by +100%.

It will be important to understand that how long you have been playing your game, at what game level you are on and how you have progressed your game, will go a long way to determine your ability to collect gold tokens and silver tokens. The gold tokens will take time to collect in large quantities, whereas silver tokens will be easier to collect in large quantities, but both coloured tokens will be needed to purchase the S1 and S2 class helicopters.

You will need landing pads for each of the helicopters, you will need to purchase buildings and upgrade them, you will need fuel, tourists and flight items. The helicopters have their own unique set of flight items, fuel and tourists, separate from those used by the planes. The required items will need to be generated by the following buildings e.g. Tourist Buildings, Resource Base, Mechanical Plant, Hi-Tech Plant, Fuel Station H and Terminal H. You will need a considerable amount of land to accommodate the buildings (it will be important to note, you will not be able to remove some of the buildings, once you have placed them in your game). All these will come at a price, and you will need to consider this very carefully, along with all the other aspects of your game which you will want to be involved with.

It will be important to mention that the rewards of experience points and coins, earned from returning helicopter flights, will be small to begin with. The rewards earned, from completing flights to collect stars, will also be small to begin with. The amount of rewards will improve as you progress your game long term. You will have the option to increase your reward levels with a selection of bonuses, which you will be able to make use of with your fleet of helicopters e.g. Compass, Tourist Visa, Hot Lunch, Gold Propeller etc.

You will need to purchase and make solid the Alliance Office building, which can be placed on both sides of your game. The building will cost 10,000 coins, you will also need to complete the side bar mission, A United Front, in order to be able to purchase S2 helicopters (this also applies to S2 planes). It will be good idea to have the building in place, before you spend your gold tokens and silver tokens, otherwise you will need to wait for the construction of the building to be completed, before you make the building solid and live. You will also need to be a member of an Alliance Group. It will be important to have these three things in place, otherwise the S2's will not be available to you.

SECTION ONE:- THE GAME STORE
To access the game store menu, you will first need to select the second icon of eight icons, the silver shopping trolley, along the bottom row of your game screen. You will then need to select the fifth icon of nine icons, the helicopter, along the top row of the menu. The menu will be in two parts, on the left hand side will be all the helicopters for sale, on the right hand side will be brief information for each of the helicopters you click on.

The standard class helicopters can be purchased with coins, they are relatively inexpensive to buy, whereas the S1 and S2 class helicopters can only be purchased with gold tokens and silver tokens, from the game store. You will also be able to purchase them through the discount supersales with green notes.

SECTION TWO:- THE DISCOUNT SUPERSALES
The S1 and S2 class helicopters can be purchased during the supersales, at a 50% discount, which will take place four times a year, during Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. The helicopters can only be purchased with green notes.

When the discount supersale opens, you will find a large round yellow and orange icon, it has a large percentage sign in the centre, located on the top right hand side of your game screen. The icon will remain on the screen for a period of time, during which you will be able to purchase S1 and S2 class helicopters:

Sparrow S1 Helicopter (10% faster) - 12 Green Notes (-50% discount)​
Sparrow S2 Helicopter (30% faster) - 30 Green Notes (-50% discount)​
Crossbill S1 Helicopter (10% faster) - 30 Green Notes (-50% discount)​
Crossbill S2 Helicopter (30% faster) - 60 Green Notes (-50% discount)​
Goldfinch S1 Helicopter (10% faster) - 60 Green Notes (-50% discount)​
Goldfinch S2 Helicopter (30% faster) - 120 Green Notes (-50% discount)​

The S1 and S2 class helicopters will be mixed in with other discount supersale items e.g. S1 and S2 Class Planes, Mystery Super Buildings, Mystery Bonus, Mystery Super Bonus, Map Sets and Collections Sets, so you will need to be very careful not to purchase the wrong item. If you purchase an item in error, it will not be possible to undo your purchase.

SECTION THREE:- SPECIAL RED HELICOPTERS
You will not be able to purchase the Special Red Helicopters, you will only be able to obtain them from a Mysterious Airplane Bonus (you will receive one random helicopter) through the Premium Class Ticket Pass.

For information on the special events throughout the year, you will need to read through the following user guide, The Airport City Game - All The Special Events Throughout The Gaming Years For 2019-2020, https://www.airportcitygame.com/thr...he-gaming-years-for-2019-2020-v7-25-30.28060/

THE DECISION
There are many forum members who look apon helicopters as a distraction from the more important aspects of Airport City e.g. flight destinations, excavation map flights, adventure map flights, alliance map flights, the space program, the city side and airport side land expansions, upgrading the four main buildings, gifting to neighbours, the collection of resources from neighbours e.g. fuel, passengers, flight items etc.

Once you have reached this point in the user guide, and knowing what you now know, it will be for you to decide if the S1 and S2 class helicopters are worth buying, or if the standard class helicopters will meet your needs, when engaged with helicopter related activities. This is a decision which only you can make, you should not make the decision in a hurry.

ADDITIONAL READING MATERIAL
For more detailed information with regards to gold tokens and silver tokens, you will need to read through the user guide, How To Obtain The Gold Tokens and The Silver Tokens During Long Term Active Game Play. https://www.airportcitygame.com/thr...ng-long-term-active-game-play-v7-15-45.25750/.

Due to the current lockdown during the past four weeks, and at least three more weeks to come, I now have far more time to concentrate on my game and the user guides. I have today updated and have re-written the entire user guide. I have also added more detail and have adjusted the on screen format. It now reads far better.

The work to update this user guide has progressed well, although it has taken a considerable amount of time and patience to update and expand the user guide with more detailed information. I'm also pleased with the way it looks and feels. It will be interesting to see if there are any changes made to the helicopter part of the game, with the v8 update.

I have updated this user guide to include more detail, have also made a number of adjustments to the way it looks and feels, so it is more consistent across all three helicopters in section one. I now wait to see if there will be any changes made to the helicopter part of the game, with the v8 game update.

Hi, do you know if the ‘Red Helicopter’ is an S2 helicopter? Contemplating upgrading my class to Premium on the current Back To School challenge if it is!

I believe it will be a random red plane. Since it is part of Premium Class, I'm assuming it will be more than just a standard helicopter - but I could be wrong.
