Helicopter sound effects and recordings
An eclectic collection from my extensive archive: Jumbo Jets, Military Fighters, War-birds, Helicopters and Bi-Planes. From an F-16 to a Tiger Moth – it’s all here.
Boeing 747 • BAC 1-11 • Cessna • Douglas C-47 • F-16 • F-86 • Fennec T-28 • Lancaster Bomber • P51 Mustang • RAF Tornado • Spitfire Mk IX • Tiger Moth
Vehicles: Aviation Sound Effects includes 60 tracks of the majestic vehicles of the air.
Includes field recordings of Sikorsky and Bell helicopters, and 767 and 777 passenger jets. There are seaplanes, and jet fighters.
This sound library includes recordings of the aircraft landing, taking off, and passing. It also features recordings of riding inside jets and seaplanes.
Need helicopter sounds? The Bell 407 and Bell 429 are *THE* helicopters used in police, news, rescue, military and private fleets. Over 1 hr and 45 minutes of beautiful recordings.
This unique SFX library gets you the close-up engine/rotor sounds of the DJI Phantom 2 multirotor quadcopter. And whether you are working on project that needs the engine sounds of an actual quadcopter drone, or intend to use the recordings as source material for sound design of all kinds of machines – this collection will come in handy:
We recorded static sound perspectives at different speeds, intensities and rotor combinations. The collection includes long recordings at constant speeds, variations on accelerating and decelerating, various maneuvers and random rotor movements.
For even more variety we recorded all of the above with a mix of contact and coil microphones giving you a less realistic, more futuristic sound perspective to the drone’s engine itself, rather than the air movement caused by the rotors. Mix those recordings with the MKH 8040 recordings to create your own blend of engine sounds: be it a drone, spaceship or other types of futuristic vehicles.
Quadcopter Drone CX10 is a small radio controlled toy with a feisty character that could be described as a robotic version of an angry bee.
This library covers in detail everything you can do with this little neat quadcopter drone. You get sounds of acceleration, deceleration, steady engine fly loops of various speeds, engine revs, fast turns, ground hoppings and takeoffs. In case you need them I also recorded collisions and landings on various surfaces like carpet, metal, rock, plastic etc. Surprisingly these sounds are quite suitable for user interface sounds too.
The steady engine fly loop sounds are really useful when you want to create your own flyby / passby sounds. I can also imagine using this library to add some unique flavour to winged insecty characters in a game or just to richen otherwise bland engine sounds.
The whole library was recorded in 96KHz 24bit quality so these sounds are really flexible if you want to experiment with pitch, stretch and other audio tools.
You get the sounds in two formats: 96 KHz 24 bit and in 44.1 KHz 16 bit, for more convenient ways of utilizing the sounds in games and other media.
‘Quadcopter Flight’ shows off these buzzing beasts from near and far in both quiet exterior locations and the studio.
Featuring a large quadcopter and two minis, these machines were captured as they performed all possible actions, such as take-offs, flybys, revs, and sustained flight.
The library also has foley, a few crashes, and recordings from contact mics that were attached to the two smaller quads for sounds of high-tech servo/rotor sounds that can be used for sci-fi projects containing robots, sliding doors, and more.

The Black Hawk UH-60M sound fx collection features 1,145 sound clips in 44.39 GB from an American military helicopter performing during a military exercise. This bundle gathers 44 takes of tandem maneuvers from two General Electric T700-GE-701D engines with cowling.
This sound library includes both onboard and exterior field recordings. The onboard recordings include 3 perspectives of the vehicle idling with rotors and turbine at low, high, and medium speeds, including an Ambisonic take. The 22 exterior perspectives include 49 channels of the chopper starting, taking off, passing by, landing, and shutting off. There are also a wide selection of stationary idles from close, medium, and distant perspectives in front, behind, and to the side of the Black Hawk at high to low RPMs. Ambisonic, surround, and double MS perspectives join stereo and mono takes. The collection is complimented by a wide variety of cockpit instrument performed effects, doors, and more.
Bonus: Pro Tools and Reaper session files align each take for easy editing and mixing. Over 18 fields of professional metadata embedded in every clip.

With A Sound Effect, Asbjoern has created a web site where our international community can browse, learn, and share the vast fruits of our labors. Together we are accelerating the very real potential power of sound design as a recognized art form.
A Sound Effect is an excellent resource for us to keep our animated films sounding unique and exciting.
A Sound Effect is a great asset to have discovered.
We found the site very easy to navigate, purchasing and downloads were effortless and the effects themselves are awesome! Asbjoern has done us all a great service.
We’ll definitely be back!
There are many great independent sound effect libraries available these days. The main problem with having so many, is keeping track of them!
A Sound Effect is a great hub, and is one of the first places I visit to look for sounds by category or genre. I started coming here to see if I could find libraries that I knew I had heard, but forgot WHERE I had heard them.
And in the process discovered libraries I never would have found otherwise. Great work! Keep it up!
We're always looking for new sounds to mangle, so when A Sound Effect had a holiday sale, I tried them out.
The purchase experience is really smooth and quick, and delivery is almost instant.
I'll definitely come back to them again in the future!
A Sound Effect is a wonderful resource for indie sound effects libraries. On top of that, it has some of the finest sound design, film and game audio interviews!
I often need very specific types of sounds so I've become a big supporter of independent recorders.
Until now I've always had to go to their individual websites. Now I can find them all in one place.
And, Asbjoern is great to work with!
A Sound Effect is a well curated boutique sound effects shop and a great place to find industry interviews and learning resources.
