One of the Holiday Gift Grab achievements today is Snowball - Land 5 helicopters in a row on the Windy airfield. The airfields don't seem to have names that I can find, though.

Are there names for the airfields anywhere? Which one is the "Windy" airfield?

It's the airfield with the orange and white wind cone thing in the middle. 3rd map from the right. Good luck with the achievement!

I just unlocked it. It's definitely that one on the PC.

    Ugh, I think you have to land something like 500 planes to unlock this airfield. I played it for a bit a long time ago and I still think I'm a couple hundred away. No thanks, Steam. You can keep your coupon.

  • @agent86, at least you don't have to get 500 airplanes as a cumulative hi-score, you just need to land 500 planes across every time you play a level.

It is the third airfield from the right, near the end of the list. In the center of the map you'll see a orange and white windsock surrounded by airstrips. (The direction of the wind affects which airstrips are active and changes during play).

Strategy for this achievement:

I finished this first try with only 15 planes landed total... maybe I just got lucky? But every 3rd or 4th was a helicopter.

Every Helicopter that entered the screen I had doing little circles near the heli landing pads, I landed all other planes that entered the screen until I had 5 helicopters all doing circles near the pads.

Then I shifted to circling all planes that entered, and quickly landed the 5 helicopters in a row.

    Hi, Andrew, welcome to the site. While this may be helpful, it doesn't really answer agent86's question of which airfield you need to play on. Dec 30, 2011 at 23:43

Yeah, it's the third from the right! This was a mighty difficult achivement to get. Make sure you keep the helicopters in the air rather than the airplanes since there are about 10 airplanes for every helicopter.
