A rescue helicopter simulator for Linux

Search and Rescue II (SaR2) is a rescue helicopter simulator for Linux. In it you can fly several helicopter and airplane models in some basic scenarios.

SaR II has low graphic requirements while still provides a fun and demanding gameplay where the player needs to locate, pick-up and rescue victims of all sorts in steep mountains, burning buildings or in the sea. It is an old game but it is a lot of fun to play and it is relatively easy to create new missions and scenarios. Please report any issues and feel free to contribute to its development!
