The '''[[HVY]] Skylift''' is a very large heavy-lift [[helicopter]] featured in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'s episode [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]]. It resembles a [[wp:S-64 Skycrane|S-64 Skycrane/Aircrane]]. It is first seen in the mission [[Caught with your Pants Down]], where it is being used to transport an [[APC]] across [[Algonquin]], in which [[Luis Fernando Lopez]] must shoot the chains holding it up to send the APC crashing to earth in order to steal it for [[Yusuf Amir]]. It is also seen in the mission [[For the Man Who Has Everything]], where Yusuf flies one in order to hijack a train car from the Liberty City Rail System.
  +
  +
Even though the Skylift is addressed as unobtainable, the helicopter can still be obtained with a minor exploit involving chasing [[Yusuf Amir]] and retrieving the Skylift after the mission [[For the Man Who Has Everything]]. The easiest method to use for this involves spawning a [[Buzzard]], chasing the Skylift, and shooting it down over a large area, where it can be stolen. A video illustrating this method can be seen here. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YskIVahtMhU]

  +
When the Skylift is obtained it can be saved at a [[Safehouses in GTA IV|safehouse]] as long as it has a lot of space (the best one being the [[Middle Park East Safehouse]]). The magnet doesn't work, simply because it isn't intended to be obtainable, so there is no animation for it working (except during 'For the Man Who Has Everything').

The HVY Skylift is a very large heavy-lift helicopter featured in Grand Theft Auto IV's episode The Ballad of Gay Tony. It resembles a S-64 Skycrane/Aircrane. It is first seen in the mission Caught with your Pants Down, where it is being used to transport an APC across Algonquin, in which Luis Fernando Lopez must shoot the chains holding it up to send the APC crashing to earth in order to steal it for Yusuf Amir. It is also seen in the mission For the Man Who Has Everything, where Yusuf flies one in order to hijack a train car from the Liberty City Rail System.

Even though the Skylift is addressed as unobtainable, the helicopter can still be obtained with a minor exploit involving chasing Yusuf Amir and retrieving the Skylift after the mission For the Man Who Has Everything. The easiest method to use for this involves spawning a Buzzard, chasing the Skylift, and shooting it down over a large area, where it can be stolen. A video illustrating this method can be seen here. [1]

When the Skylift is obtained it can be saved at a safehouse as long as it has a lot of space (the best one being the Middle Park East Safehouse). The magnet doesn't work, simply because it isn't intended to be obtainable, so there is no animation for it working (except during 'For the Man Who Has Everything').
