About Sérgio Costa

HeliSimmer.com exists to provide the community with a useful resource for helicopter flight simulation, as an education tool, and as a hobby, encourage others to take that leap into a career in aviation. Or simply just have fun.

On our website you will find news, articles, interviews, reviews, previews and other material that not only keep you up-to-speed with what’s going in the helicopter scene, but also help you expand your knowledge about how helicopters work and how to make the most of them in your favorite sim – we can help you choose that as well!

We are also a thriving community. Along with the website, we have a Facebook group (which is the community companion of our Facebook page), filled with wonderful people that share the same interest and passion: the passion for aviation and specifically, helicopters.

Our presence on events help us get to know the community, share our love and passion for the hobby and help others understand this particular niche inside flight simulation.

In the group you will find all kinds of people: from the casual flight simulation helicopter pilot, to the seasoned real-world pilot that uses simulators to practice real-life procedures, to student pilots or even addon developers that help bring the world of simulation a notch closer to reality.

They all joined the community to share their passion and help others in making the most out of this amazing hobby.

With Mischa Gelb ( Pilot Yellow), during the leg that brought the EPIC World Tour through Lisbon.

You can also find us on Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram or join our community in Discord.

We now wish to be more than just a hub for the community. We want to be "community ambassadors", to provide front line reports and questions on your behalf. To push our presence for all of us that love helicopters and helicopter flight simulation, to expand and improve this hobby we enjoy so much.

Facetime with developers is very important. Here's a group photo when I met the folks from IPACS and VRMotion, as well as Mr. Claude Vuichard, in Switzerland.

If you love helicopters, love the community and would like to be in the front line of the community, well, you can! 

Just become a patron!

By doing so, along with the rewards, you will also be given exclusive access to some of the content we make or be provided with access to publicly available information before everyone else.

Don't worry: we will not hide our content. What we will be giving exclusively to patrons is behind-the-scenes videos and photos, for example.

Become a patron and be part of another step forward for this amazing community of helicopter flight simulation lovers.

After a year, this will allow us to be present in, at least, one major flight simulation in the US (and perhaps one in Europe as well). This covers the trip (from and to Europe), lodging, local travelling and food (which can be quite an expense on its own) and taxes -- I am taxed for the "income".

While at it, we can cover the event while contacting directly with the developers and get our voice heard.

Face time is often underrated but when you put a face behind the voice (or the email) things usually go smoother.
