Grab the stick of the fast and nimble Western Besra training jet and push it to the edge of the envelope

The San Andreas Flight School Update brings a variety of new features and vehicles. 2 new planes and 1 new helicopter are added in the game, as well as 10 flying lessons in the flight school. Also, reserve parachutes are now available for purchase at Ammu-Nation, as well as a few new patriotic parachute designs.

Highlights from the Change Log

  • Cash rewards are no longer reduced by 50% on replay of a Contact Mission. Players will now receive the full reward for completing a Mission every time.
  • Players now receive more Cash for playing Contact Missions in groups:
    • Two players -   +10% Cash
    • Three players - +20% Cash
    • Four players -   +30% Cash
  • Cash and RP for Contact Missions have been rebalanced. This is to ensure that all Contact Missions pay out a fair reward in relation to the mission difficulty and amount of time taken. The potential cash payouts have increased significantly overall, although some specific missions have been reduced as a result of the rebalance.
  • The San Andreas Flight School is now open for business in GTA Online. The Flight School can be accessed via a Job corona, from rank 6 onwards, at Los Santos International Airport indicated by a small plane icon on the map. Ten flying lessons have been added as part of the Flight School which will help to improve players’ flying skills.
  • Two new Planes and one new Helicopter have been added to the Elitas website: Buckingham Mil-Jet, Western Besra, and the Buckingham Swift (Two liveries)
  • Players are now able to purchase and equip a reserve Parachute at Ammu-Nation. They can choose different canopy designs for their primary and reserve parachutes.
  • One new vehicle (plus a roofless variation) has been added to the Legendary Motorsport website : Invetero Coquette Classic
  • 25 new ‘flags of the world’ themed parachute bags have been added to Ammu-Nation in GTA Online only.
  • Six new multicolored parachute canopies have been added to Ammu-Nation:
    • Air Force Chute
    • Desert Chute
    • Shadow Chute
    • High Altitude Chute
    • Airborne Chute
    • Sunrise Chute
  • A new Flight Suit outfit has been added for Male and Female characters. This is available in all clothes stores in the outfits menu.
