The News Helicopter (aka: News Maverick) is a helicopter that first appeared on Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and then in San Andreas. It is essentially a 2 door "shortened" Maverick helicopter with News markings. Due to the shorter length and changed game physics for this helicopter, people that regulairly fly the regular Maverick may have difficulty getting used to this one. They are available on Vice City: On top of the news building, and on San Andreas; the only known method of obtaining one is by starting a race (known as: "Whirly Bird checkpoint") failing it and taking it to the private hangar. Its position is currently unknown on Liberty City Stories.
