It can fit 2 people inside and is great for transporting a body guard in GTA Vice City or a homie in GTA San Andreas. The Helicopter's weak point is its uncovered engine. A few shots is enough to bring it out of the air. Also of interesting is the tail rotor of the GTA San Andreas Sparrow, which is dislocated, placed a considerable distance further back from the tail fin.
