This is my rendition of BC Helicopters flight training school. I made the main building as close to the real thing as possible(as close as i can get anyway!)
Added more trees/bushes. also added it as custom airport. The made up ICAO is BCHS.
This is my first attempt at a msfs mod, I hope you like it!
I am hoping to release some more packs to go along with this like landing missions for helis and maybe others :)

Please leave comments and likes or dislikes I appreciate it and helps me want to make more mods!
UPDATES 2021-12-05 V 0.1.1 ;
-- Added roof vents and chimney(textures still need work).
-- Modified textures and scenery.
-- Added new scenery.
-- Modified spawn position on helipads and scaled pads down.
-- made new helipads(painted lines).
-- Added Lights(works with day/night cycle) and a red beacon(on top of windsock).
-- Sometimes the windsock and beacon on the roof spawns a little bit off, but seems to correct itself after you fly off a bit and come back.
-- Still not happy with a few small bits with the textures, may still work on fixing these. (still trying to get the hang of this texture system!)
Very cool! My comment is that the Google air photo is out of date; there are actually 3 helipads -- they moved the 2 you have a bit to the west and stuck another in on the east side of the property, a little more north closer to the gas tank. Great work!

Thanks, if you havent already, go check out rotornut44's version uploaded today! He got it pretty spot on!
Thanks so much for this fantastic rendition of BC Helicopters! I have watched most of his videos and so I feel connected to this great heliport you have created. In the videos, there are not too many trees around, especially in the field between the heliport and the Abbotsford airport to the South. I have tried my hand at the Scenery SDK to eliminate those trees but only to fail to do so. Could anyone please remove the trees which would bring this field a lot closer to reality? Thanks again for this scenery!

Thanks for even thinking of doing that. I know a person can get a lot of time wrapped up in working with scenery. Have a great one!
Thanks for this helicopter school scenery mod. I live in Vancouver, and have visited Abbotsford airport several times for air show, didn't realize there is a helicopter school next to it. Will use it to fly your Mosquito!

you should also look up "pilot yellow" on youtube, he is the owner/operator of this school, he is an amazing instructor and has some awesome vdeos, everything i learned about flying helis(for the sim at least lol) came from listening to his teachings!
Thank you for making this wonderful BC scenery. For your survey, I would wish for more real BC helipad scenery. I'm not too much into fictional airports.

Thank you so much for a wonderful comment, I'm not much into the fictional either, your input is very much appreciated, i live in nova scotia so all my research is done through the internet and google maps especially for places I'm not familiar with 😊
