The Sea Sparrow is an improved version of the [[Sparrow]], featuring pontoons instead of landing skids, and a .50 caliber machine gun mounted below its fuselage. The pontoons make it possible for the Sea Sparrow to land on water without sinking.

In GTA Vice City, it is unlocked only by collecting 80 [[Hidden Packages|hidden packages]] and is not found anywhere else in the game.
+
== Performance ==
  +
The Sea Sparrow has the same performance as the Sparrow, but has now the ability (just like the [[Leviathan]]) to land on the water. This is then a good choice to collect oysters in ''GTA San Andreas''. On the water, it will be steady and can be accessed easily. The Sea Sparrow has good handling and has quick maneuvering, just as its basic counterpart.
   
In GTA San Andreas, the Sea Sparrow does not require unlocking, and can be found in certain places, although these locations are in regions that themselves need to be unlocked first.
+
The Sea Sparrow also has a .50 caliber machine gun, which is very similar to the Hunter's. Just like the Hunter, it is capable to automatically lock on and shoot at targets in a ~45 degrees radius. The gun can lock on [[pedestrians]], as well as vehicles, and due to the gun's high firepower, it can make short work of groups of enemies and vehicles.
 
In GTA Vice City Stories, the Sea Sparrow is used during the mission "[[The Colonel's Coke]]" and side-mission "[[Land Sea and Air Ace]]", but cannot be accessed outside of these missions. Because of its fully exposed engine, the Sea Sparrow is highly susceptible to gunfire.
 
 
It is, however, particularly useful for reaching [[Collectibles]] in GTA San Andreas, quick maneuvering, and shooting down other helicopters. Sea Sparrows are also useful in collecting oysters, since oysters are always located in water areas spread across the state.
