I bought new helicopter models but they don't load, only the original Xplane 11 are visible, even when click for older models, the new ones don't show up... They are in the right directory, don't know why they don't show up.

Hi duguayjacques

I'm not with Laminar Research, just a fellow simmer in the UK, but a couple of basic questions:-

1. Presumably the helicopter models you purchased are written for X-Plane 11?

2. Presumably also, they are written for the correct operating system i.e. Windows or MAC?

3. Are they in the C:\X-Plane 11\Aircraft\Extra Aircraft folder?

Sorry for the basic questions, but when diagnosing, you should always start at the beginning :-)

Hi duguayjacques,

I am not from Laminar Research;just a flight simmer from downunder.

Consider the information from Greengolfer15.

From my interpretation of the comments made in your question you most like loaded the 3rd party aircraft, sorry helicopter into the wrong directory.

Have a look at the following video link from Michael Brown found at

Good flying.
