VCN Maverick

A VCN Maverick in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

The VCN Maverick is a news helicopter in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.


The VCN Maverick is simply a shortened version of the Maverick, which is based on the Bell 206, and is only capable of seating two occupants. The helicopter bears corporate logos of Eight-Ten VCN in Downtown, Vice City, and as such, is also painted in a blue-and-white body color scheme. In terms of performance, the VCN Maverick is more maneuverable, being capable of steeper pitches, resulting in faster horizontal speeds (at the expense of faster drops in altitude). With it's stats it is also capable of doing flips.

In both Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the VCN Maverick is a leftover from GTA Vice City and is not used in the game; however, it can be obtained only by using cheat devices. The helicopter will always appear chromed in GTA Liberty City Stories. In GTA Vice City Stories it is unknown if the helicopter was supposed to make a return in the game or just as a leftover again.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has its own version of this helicopter called the News Chopper.
