Defining high performance.
Designed to perform brilliantly in everything from high altitudes to Arctic conditions to the hottest climes, the 407 provides proven reliability across a variety of demanding roles.
A single-engine, civil utility helicopter, the 407 is frequently used for corporate and offshore transport, as an air ambulance, law enforcement, electronic news gathering and movie making.
The 407 features the Rolls-Royce 250-C47B powerplant developing 674 takeoff horsepower, as well as a four-blade, soft-in-plane design rotor with composite hub originally developed for the United States Army's OH-58D Kiowa Warrior.

Introducing our rendition of the renowned 407 helicopter, with support for multiple platforms, including all versions of FSX and P3D.
Detailed, In-Depth Simulation
Our 407 is packed with a ton of detail and closely replicates the real life helicopter in every way we could, carefully created using high quality digital imagery, and has undergone hours and hours of testing, revising, and testing again! With start-up and shut-down procedures that are switch for switch comparable to the real 407, a large amount of systems replication, and a 99% operable virtual cockpit, we have strived to bring you the most detailed simulation of the 407 available today.
Perfecting Form and Function
At Milviz, we have a reputation for creating the absolute best, and our 407 is no exception. We've carefully crafted not only a superb external model, but also a perfectly detailed virtual cockpit, complete with crisp, high definition textures. For those who like flying at night, our advanced cockpit lighting provides an absolutely sublime experience. From the smooth 3D gauges to the replication of intricate details, nothing has been overlooked.
Numerous Configuration Options
Just like the real thing, the Milviz 407 is an extremely versatile and highly capable platform. We've designed the 407 to include several optional equipment configurations with your purchase, allowing you to tailor your 407 to match any number of real world models. Selectable options include:
- Wire Strike Protection System
- Frahm Damper
- Night Light
- FLIR Camera
- Carry Pod
- Emergency Floats
Not just cosmetic options, the Night Light is completely controllable through key commands, and the Emergency Floats really do their job, allowing you to land on water without sinking.
In addition, all options are able to be set per livery through our Aircraft Configuration Manager, allowing you to outfit your 407 fleet in any way you want.
Stand-alone Configuration Manager
This package includes our Aircraft Configuration Manager, a stand-alone program which allows you to easily set your preferred options per livery. Not only are choices available pertaining to gauge placement and external option visibility, but you are also able to set your preference between having the helicopter load in a 'Cold and Dark' state, or having it load up with the blades spinning, ready to fly.
The ability of setting these options per livery means that you don't have to choose a single static setup for your entire hangar; you can configure any livery with any combination of options in order to always have a 407 ready for whatever you have the time for!
Third Party Avionics Integration
Out of the box, so to speak, our 407 includes our own highly detailed GPS units based on the default simulator data. However, we fully recognize that many of our customers use other popular third party options for replicating the GPS functions. We have included full compatibility for the most popular avionics addons, including 3D modeled faceplates. Compatible 3rd party avionics include the following:
- Reality XP 530 GNS
- Reality XP 430 GNS
- Mindstar 530 GNS
- Mindstar 430 GNS
- Flight1 750 GTN
- Flight1 650 GTN
Please note that compatibility for the above gauge packages includes support for installation and setup of our product only; use of any of the offered options requires a functional existing installation of the appropriate gauge. In addition, any gauges we list compatibility for are not included
with the Milviz 407.
Use of any 3rd party avionics package in any desired simulator is also of course restricted to the availability of the avionics package for that simulator. Please see the respective manufacturers websites for platform compatibility.
Single Purchase, Multi-Platform Use
The Milviz 407 package now supports a wide range of platforms, in a single, downloadable installer:

The Milviz 407 package also now includes addon and avionics options that were, at one time, separate purchases. These have now been included in the multi-installer.
