1.The example

For the handling of rescue helicopters on the scene of action there are rules in place what the marshaller has to do. Via a friend of mine who is memeber of the Austrian Mountain Rescue Brigade I’ve got a manual for that topic. Unfortunately I could’nt realize all the signs in use because of lack of DataRefs from X-Plane.

But this is only version 1.0 and maybe someone want to participate in this project. I can help with the manual of the signs.

2.The object

The object is based on the marshaller of Jonathan („marginal“) from his Auto-Gate-Kit.


The desired .obj file

  • "Heli-Marschaller_15m.obj" or
  • "Heli-Marschaller_20m.obj"

And both textures:

  • "Marshaller.png" and
  • "Marshaller_LIT.png"

Must be copied into a folder of the scenery and must be placed with WED or OE:

The filename of the .obj means the distance between the handle and the marshaller.

The object with its handle should be placed into the center of the helipad or the place the helicopter should land. The object must be set with the direction 0°.










The marshaller automaticaly stands with the wind in his back all the time. That is the reason why the direction of the object should always be 0!

As long as the flight altitude is more than 10m AGL the marshaller shows the signal „land here“. Both arms are straight up.
Between 10m and 5m AGL the marshaller shows the signal „slow hover“. Both arms are to the sides.
Between 5m and 0.5m AGL the marshaller shows the signal to land. Both arms are showing to the ground.
Under 0.5m AGL the marshaller shows the signal to shut down the engines. Both arms are crossed above the head.


  • Due to the fact that there are no DataRefs from which the position of the helicopter relative to the landning place could be read out, the marshaller also shows the signals when the helicopter is landing somewhere else.
  • For the moment only the above shown signal are realized because otherwise it would only be possible using a plug in.
