The Maverick is the most commonly used helicopter on both Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and San Andreas. It has been on GTA since Grand Theft Auto: 3; although it was unusable on that game and was only used by Police and on one mission by Enemies. It was not accessible by any means on that game as it was considered a static object with constantly roating blades. The windows were also non-transparent for this reason. On Vice City it is a fully accessible vehicle, and is availabe in quite a few places. It can fit 4 people including the pilot. It has a moderate maximum speed, can survive some damage, and it is the only helicopter on Vice City that is available in a variety of colors. There is also another smaller 2 passanger version dubbed VCN Maverick that is used by the Vice City News Network. In San Andreas the Maverick is basically the same helicopter with new handling, and a new sound. One can be found parked in San Fierro International Airport at the corner-part. As on Vice City there is also a news helicopter, that can be seen flying along with the Police Maverick once the player reaches a 4-star wanted level. There is also a Maverick on Liberty City Stories that was not intended to be flied by the player. It can be obtained using a button cheat and skill on one mission. It handles and sounds the exactly the same way as on Vice City. Overall it is a good choice on Vice City, but on San Andreas there are many better choices.
