Eurocopter AS 332L2/532

The Eurocopter AS532 Cougar (now Airbus Helicopters H215M) is a twin-engine, medium-weight, multipurpose helicopter developed by France. The AS532 is a development and upgrade of the Aérospatiale SA 330 Puma in its militarized form. Its civilian counterpart is the Eurocopter AS332 Super Puma.

Suitable for FG versions 2017+



Flight Notes
The FDM has been test flown and tested by an actual AS532 pilot who gave it a big thumbs up ( 90% accurate )
The Cougar, in Basic form, Requires Right Pedal and Cyclic at 7pm position. Large Stick movements are not recommended.
There is a payload option to simulate long line use to the Cougars stated 10000lb hook capacity.
If you set this to Maximum the flight characteristics will change dramatically. You will require Large left cyclic inputs to take off/hover. Expect all performance values to degrade.
Take note that the Maximum specified take off weight is 9000kg / 19842lb. Exceed that at your peril.

Compatible with the Cargo Towing addon ( separate download ). :- github.com/wlbragg/Cargo-Towing-Addon

Unfortunately, I've not got it loaded, far less off the ground.

Binned my old one before loading AS532 folder into my hangar. Have tried now 8 times to get it loaded. The failure is a little odd however.

Attempt 1,2,3 - loading up to KMKE, Flightgear crashes before loading is done. Multiplayer on.
Attempt 4, 5 - loading up to KLAL, Flightgear completes loading enough for me to see airport, then irretrievably freezes some 4-6 seconds in. Multiplayer on.
Attempt 6 - loading up to PHNL, Flightgear crashes before loading is done. Multiplayer on.
Attempt 7 - loading up to PHNL, Flightgear crashes before loading is done. Multiplayer off.
Attempt 8 - loading up to KLAL, Flightgear completes loading enough for me to see airport, then irretrievably freezes some 4-6 seconds in. Multiplayer off.

I'm not tackling it again until I've had a good think and a good drink!

The jumping to different airports is because I had this exact issue (but lesser in impact) with another chopper somewhat recently. I think it might be the Westland Apache. I had FG crash before last Flightnight repeatedly on entering the sim at KLAX. I did get it to load somewhere else I think, which is why I did the airport changes here. Just having a WAG. Anyone experiencing any weirdness?

Not seen the strangeness with the Cougar but I have had several airports recently where they simply won't load using *most* aircraft.

It was giving me issues for the first 25 mins of flightnight last Saturday and trying to spawn at the halfway point (after having a FG crash on landing) saw the same thing so in the end I gave up.

I've just tried KMKE for you but although it didn't load in the Cougar (stuck on Scenery Loading) It get exactly the same using the 'Default' C172P

I've only had this since switching to the new FG (2020.3.2) , anyone else getting it on different versions?

Not having any issues at KMKE with anything right now - I don't have terrasync enabled though

AS532 looks & flies nice - am seeing a slight difference between the gdrive & public download version though - no thumbnail shown in the public download version

looking at the directory list there are lots more differences

G drive one is now obsolete and It should be deleted. Public version has some excess junk removed etc. Any future changes should use the public version as the initial build.

Dug in a bit more - several aircraft don't load up but freeze / lock FG irretrievably. Variable - some airports are OK, some not. Some models OK, some not. Multiplayer setting doesn't appear to be a factor.

I'm running the Mac version of fgfs 2020.1.2 I've DLd the newest one - just haven't gotten around to installing it yet.

Not seeing any issues on macOS, but then again, not seeing any issues on Linux either - neither have Terrasync enabled (I have the whole world scenery on my NAS) but both have MP enabled

I'm wondering if there are DNS issues...
