Important note: Throughout this manual, owners, users and pilots are frequently referred to in the male gender. DodoSim recognises that piloting and simulation use are not the sole preserves of men and that women play a significant role within the aviation industry and flight simulation hobby. The use of male pronouns is used to aid grammatical legibility and should be read as to infer him/her, he/she, etc. wherever used.

A notice to readers: The DodoSim 206 FSX has taken significant time and effort to produce and culminates in probably the most advanced and feature-packed helicopter add-on ever produced for Microsoft Flight Simulator. DodoSim is a not a large corporation with large pockets, but a small, dedicated team, struggling to justify the manpower required to produce a product such as this. If you are using the DodoSim 206 FSX but have not paid for it, we kindly request that you either stop doing so and delete the files, or purchase a copy. The viability of future products really does depend on the financial success of this product. It is not simply only disheartening to the team to see our products pirated and distributed, but seriously threatens the likelihood that we will continue to produce more in the future.
