It's one of the oldest aircraft in GTAV/Online.  It played a key role in the Story of V.

It probably won't be added as a ownable vehicle as (so I've heard) it wasn't modeled to have a passenger.  It should be a three-seater, but the third "cargomaster" seat isn't accessible.

It can lift without a hook (via cutscenes) but it's as slow as the Tug in Online.  I don't think it was as slow in the story when you had to use it to move... stuff.

Yeah and what about the unarmed Buzzard? Surely that could've been added when it was shown off with a red paintjob and incorrectly advertised as the Havok. Makes me wonder why they don't see these sort of opportunities. Still waiting for that Lost Slamvan too. 

 

I think the delivery version in Online is nerfed for speed, a bit like some of the planes on source missions. So not only are some of these missions/ sales long in the first place, but they're made worse by whatever script(s) Rockstar implemented to speed-limit the vehicles.

Hunter and Skylift are the only things I wanted. I'm very pissed by delivery missions, I expected at least the Skylift would occupy a proeminent place like Titan with Special Cargo and we could customize the delivery vehicle via a red desk, and make it as valuable as upgraded CEO Titan/Cuban 800.

I don't even enjoy helping peoples with their Smuggler deliveries because the probability to get fun-and-cool craps like Stunt Planes, ultralight BS or ridiculous thing called Havoc are proeminent over logistically relevant, decent vehicles like Cargobob and Skylift.


Sorry for the BM.

Skylift is about half a notch above PostOp vans on the Unbearable Dullness Meter, you couldn't pay me enough to clutter my hangar with it.

Wish I could cargobob the skylift for that sell mission.

On the return trip with the second Skylift I genuinely considered landing on the train and letting it ferry me back.  Longer route but twice the speed.

The Skylift has a huge rotor disk, so even if it stayed on the train without exploding, everything near the tracks would hit it.

 

I just reviewed my video of that sell mission and I'm glad Rockstar programmed it like they did: my second container hit the barge on target (and counted as delivered) but bounced over the barge wall and ended up in the water
