With the release of X-Plane 11, X-Plane users naturally went through the growing pains of porting over their X-Plane 10 models into the new simulator. X-Plane may have the most realistic flight model on the market, but what is that worth if you can’t fly the aircraft that you want to fly, in the places you want to fly them? most aircraft models you download can be installed by simply unzipping the download and moving the resulting folder to your X-Plane installation’s Aircraft directory,
With this in mind and given the high standard of quality Freeware or Payware aircraft available for XP11, Cal Air no longer provides aircraft, any flights with the following may now be flown utilizing the PVT ACARS Flight Number Prefix, these aircraft ICAO's should show up in your hanger dependant upon your current ranking, all aircraft shown below are (BYO) Bring Your Own
The Eurocopter (now Airbus Helicopters) AS350 Écureuil (Squirrel) is a single-engine light utility helicopter originally designed and manufactured in France by Aérospatiale and Eurocopter (now Airbus Helicopters).

The Sikorsky S-76 is an American medium-size commercial utility helicopter, manufactured by the Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation. The S-76 features twin turboshaft engines, four-bladed main and tail rotors and retractable landing gear. The development of the S-76 began in the mid-1970s as the S-74, with the design goal of providing a medium helicopter for corporate transportation and the oil drilling industry.

The Sikorsky S-92 is a four-bladed twin-engine medium-lift helicopter built by Sikorsky Aircraft for the civil and military helicopter market. The S-92 was developed from the Sikorsky S-70 helicopter and has similar parts such as flight control and rotor systems. After the 1973 oil crisis, major oil and gas companies began exploration further offshore, thus creating a need for aircraft such as the S-92 with sufficient capability.
