By the authors nothing about FS2004 or 3D model only the makers of the FDM and Liveries (only one, others are from FS2004 also).

yeah. Haven't check that deep.
But on the bright side, I think you should be able to make a GPL livery. Those stand by themselves as well... so...
If you do it from scratch (even using a GPLed paintkit, or a GPLed livery) you should be good. (I think)

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

Yeah!... I think I am planning on flying the Aircrane on that one.
(my brain still locked in the fact that I still suffer on the Huey ... a lot! )

About those FS2004 converted aircraft ... always check whether the models are elsewhere under GPL. Some people made planes for FS2004, FSX and so on based on GPL models and only some of their additions are non-GPL.

Some guy at KSFO gave me a really nice idea. :P

For this leg, I will be using a slightly modified livery:

Weather Forecast

Hi All
As we approach the departing time, we being to see the predicted weather conditions for our helies journey.
So far so good

http://flightaware.com/resources/airport/KCLT/weather

We have VFR conditions in our departing airport in Charlotte, with winds expected from Northwest, departing straight ahead toward the Appalachians. No clouds.

http://flightaware.com/resources/airport/6L4/weather (Logan County, 16nm NE from KEBD)

The information around Logan Airport, nearby to Mingo County's KEBD is equally confortable. Winds from Northwest at about 8KTS. clear skies. VFR conditions.

http://flightaware.com/resources/airport/KLCK/weather

For our final arrival to Rickenbacker, we find winds from SE at 9 Kts. acceptable visibility. Few to Scattered clouds with a 4000 ceiling.


****

Thus it seems everything is coming along really nicely for our VFR plans, and we may not need to resort to rescue with NDBs. This is great for a heli flight with good visuals on the Appalacchian peaks and the Ohio Valleys. Visibility is also expected to be good, and VFR conditions able to be maintained for the durations of our flight --if conditions do not worsen. Also noteworthy, for most of our flight we are expecting headwinds of about 5-8 Kts, and after that, just for arrival a few tailwind help. Overall -- beautiful conditions for flight are expected for our squad.

See you soon,

IH-COL
