I am new to HC but been a long time follower and download user of excellent software. Here is some info about Indianapolis Heliport. When I was in the national guard. My Blackhawk unit (2/238 Anv. Company B) would pick up State and other public VIPs routinely from there. Quite a trick land a UH-60 on a pad that just fit the Blackhawks under carriage. As a flight crewchief, I had to stick half my body out the gunners side window and look under the fuselage just to visually clear the tail wheel down to land. Is there any scenery of this Flight facility?

Here is the downtown heliport in US Cities X Indianapolis from limesim/Aerosoft. I own Chicago X from them and there is quite a number of helipads in that scenery too. It's payware, but I wasn't sure what you were seeking.
