LHX Attack Chopper is a game with a large learning curve. But for a flight simulator, it's not bad. Once you get the basic controls down, you can fly to the destination points and complete your objectives. However, there are four aircraft (Apache, Black Hawk, LHX, Osprey) you can fly, each with different visual layouts in the cockpit. It is important to get used to as many of them as you can because some missions have a limited choice of aircraft.

There are many types of missions, and you can do whichever you please. There is no set completion order. The missions are grouped in tours, and include POW rescues, chopper escorts, supply runs, aerial intercepts, and more.

As I mentioned, how well you do in the game and how much you enjoy it depends on how well you know the controls. There are so many controls that there is no sense in writing them here since there is an excellent file that you can download below that has them all.
