Learn To Fly Like A Pro

RUST Minicopter & Heli Training Server

“Just spawn in a Minicopter and start practicing”

The RUST Minicopter is not easy to fly by any stretch of the imagination. It took me some time to get comfortable with taking off, navigating the sky and landing, although my landing skills could do with some more practice. However, I have seen RUST pro players drive the RUST Minicopters and Helicopters through monuments, tunnels and under fire in the heat of battle without a single mistake or care in the world. I wanted to be that good, but I needed to practice.

I needed a place I could practice without getting shot all the time on a PVP server or having to grind for hours on a PVE server just to get the scrap to buy one, only to crash and burn it 3 minutes later. So I opened up the first RUST Minicopter Training Server that allows you to spawn in a Minicopter or Helicopter and start flying it straight away. It’s also PVE rules so that no one can shoot you down.

Welcome To Salty Zombies RUST Minicopter Training

“Every team needs an ace pilot, and every team member should know how to fly a RUST Minicopter or Helicopter to some decent level. That’s why I opened the RUST Minicopter and Helicopter Training Server.” – Nams

Useful info about the RUST Minicopter

  • Both Minicopter and Helicopter use 30 Lowgrade Fuel Per minute.
  • Normal Minicopters can Store 500 Low Grade Fuel, giving a Max Flight time of 16minutes and 40 seconds.
  • Mini’s can be refuelled whilst flying by having Lowgrade in your inventory, holding the Alt key to access the fuel tank and putting Lowgrade from inventory into the fuel tank.
  • Mini Fuel Tank indicator, when at 50%, means you have 100 seconds of flight. When it’s in the red, it means you only have 50 seconds of flight left.


PLEASE NOTE: This server is also our RUST Building & Creative Server. So you may see a lot of bases. Please do not fly near them or crash into people’s bases. You can’t do damage to their bases or raid steal their stuff. But any attempts to do so will result in a permanent ban.

RUST Minicopter Server Economics

You have to remember the RUST Minicopter Server is also our RUST Creative and Building server, so you will see on your screen that you receive 100 Coins every 30 minutes. You can use this currency to buy Kits or Items in the shop. Although you are only on the server to practice flying the Minicopter, nothing is saying you can’t build yourself a little base to practice landing on. Or a little 2×1 tunnel to practice fly-throughs. You can even build a dumb base to practice flying in and raiding.

All you need to do is type /Shop in chat to bring up the shop menu. The shop currency is called “Salty Coins” You can earn 15% to 25% more Salty Coins every 30 minutes when you become a subscriber. In addition to the earning multiplier, you also get a 10% to 20% discount on shop items, depending on what tier subscription you choose. More info on that is below.

We also understand that not everyone has the time to grind out or play for hours. Some of us have work and family commitments, so we have enabled you to buy Salty Coins for real-world money.
