No sign in the very detailed scenery.
Has he built up a promontary with the pad at the end?

That should be smack in the middle of the helipad.

Let me see if I can export the track to KML so you can view it in Goggle
Earth.

According to Pocket FMS it is here:


It was between the coast road and the TT course, slightly north of
Cronk Y Voddey. From the OS map it's a farm called Stockfield (or
nearby). It's here I wish Google Earth had better IoM photo
resolution. You may see it better in FSX!

Two things. First it is a heck of a lot easier to fly than any FS
helicopters. Stick movement is minimal - you don't move it more than
an inch to get a marked change of attitude. It was also quite
instinctive to fly (unlike FS) and I got it down to about ten feet in
the hover without having to work at it. I wish FS was as easy..

Tom - you may see it tomorrow as it's bound for a farm near Hexham..
