I understand the scenes of JP are set in Hawaii, in the first film there was the great scene with the chopper (Dauphin i think) flying along Hawaii's coast, then preceeded by the vertical drop to the helipad.
Is the Helipad an actual real-life pad, or did they just mock one up for the film.
If it is a real pad, where in FS2002 can I find it, or is there a add-on for it.
Also in JP3 theres the airfield, does anyone know where that is too.

Well for a chopper update it was either a Sikorsky S-76 or an Agusta A-109, my memory is faling me, definitely not a dauphin. Anywho not sure where the pad was actually located, but If i find a random pad in FS i'll let ya know.

Yeah it's not a real location. They went on location to one of Hawaii's more famous waterfalls, Manawaiopuna Falls, on Kauai. I've been there a few times and it's actually a set of multiple falls, Manawaiopuna being the tallest. There is a trail and clearing along the valley that leads up to the massive falls. There is no real helipad.

They constructed a temporary one for the film shoot. Thank god too, because Hawaii is already overly humanized for easy tourist access.
