The Sparrow is the oldest helicopter on Vice City and San Andreas. It is somtimes called the "bubble chopper" by GTA fans and more recently just the "bubble". Despite its old appearance the helicopter handles quite well on Vice City compared to the Maverick and has taken a slight downturn on San Andreas. It can fit 2 people inside and its great for transporting a body guard from Vice City or a homie from San Andreas. The Helicopter's weak point is its uncovered engine. A few shots is enough to bring this whirly out of the air. It has a better "brother" known as the Sea Sparrow that can shoot and land on the water.
