Can it be flown?

I have heard many rumours about the Skyhook, one mainly about it will not be flyable. In one of the missions and a couple of screenshots, not Luis (The BOGT protaganist) is flying it, he is just standing on it. Anybody heard rumours about it, any suggestions?. GSF4L 28 October 2009, 19:58 (UTC)

where did you hear this? - EELRAH
Yes it can be flown but you need to do a quick exploit which is very Difficult LegendaryFroggy 01:30, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

GTA The Ballad of Gay Tony Tips & Tricks - How to get the Skylift

The Skylift can be obtained on the mission For the man who has everything.But getting it is not easy.It took me many tries to get it. you must watch the last cutscene and when able quickly spawn a buzzard, quickly fly up to him, move him to the air port, and shoot himflying it.Click to watch a video of how to do it.

Obtaining in GTA V

Is it possible to keep the Skylift in GTA V after prepping for the main heist? If so, at which airfield? --Falloutghoul (talk) 15:07, October 16, 2013 (UTC)

Quite sure after the main heist it spawns at Trevors airfield on the helipad because it did for me.. Not sure if the magnet works though haven't tried James1579 (talk) 17:20, October 16, 2013 (UTC)

Is it flown by LCPD?

Should we say on the page that its flown by Liberty City Police? I mean, it clearly transports a LC NOOSE APC and in Caught With Your Pants down it's flown by police pilotsGLTh3Pr0 (talk) 14:54, September 2, 2015 (UTC)

Not really. It can't be stated that it belongs to the LCPD since there's no proper proof of that, the owner remains unknown. EagleIcon AndreEagle17 PS3 Triangle PS3 Cross PS3 Circle 15:51, September 2, 2015 (UTC)

Regarding the Skylift's texture map

I am doubtful that the Skylift uses the exact same texture map as the Cuban 800. Could someone please verify the Skylift's texture map and change the "Detail" image in the Current Design Gallery if necessary? Thank you.

It does indeed use the Cuban 800 texture map. You have to keep in mind how texture mapping works: the mapping is customized to choose coordinates of a 2D texture sheet and wrap them around a 3D shape - those coordinates don't have to select everything. In this case, the "Cuban 800" markings are not included in the selection. It saves Rockstar having to create new textures. Monk Talk 18:08, December 1, 2017 (UTC)
I see. Thank you for the explanation. Very well, no changes will be made to the Current Design Gallery, but I will add a note to the trivia.
