In this game you fly the Royal Navy Merlin helicopter, within the environment of the Navy's training simulation. The action is viewed in 3D from one of a range of camera angles, and digitised sound effects are included. You begin near a frigate, and the aim is simply to land on the stern of the ship. There are three difficulty levels, which increase the realism of the flight model, as well as adding other factors such as wind. Once you touch down, you are given a comprehensive scoring and review of your landing.

The AgustaWestland EH101 (AW101 from June 2007) (designed - Merlin HM1 in UK Royal Navy) is a medium-lift helicopter for military applications (also used for civil purposes) designed to replace Westland Sea Kings helicopters.

The designation "EH101" is in fact a typographical error, the aircraft was originally designated EHI (European Helicopter Industries).
