Summary[edit]

In Choplifter HD, players take on the role of an up-and-coming rescue pilot asked to join the elite, international helicopter rescue team C.H.O.P.R. (Coordinated Helicopter Operations, Preservation and Rescue). Pilots are trained to command a variety of helicopters deployed on a variety of different missions, such as captured military prisoner extraction.
