I've read that it's possible to refuel the helicopter at Estoni, but I can't seem to make it work. I freed and recruited Shank from Tixa, and took him to Estoni to talk to Jake. Jake said "I see you've got Breeham Druz workin' for ya..." and then "ya know, if you're looking for fuel, I'd be one of the few places ... where ya can get it." I have a note in my history log claiming that Jake will now sell me fuel. And if I trade with him, he will sell me cans of gas in the buy/sell screen.

But Skyrider still insists on returning to the Drassen airport when left alone for a few minutes, even if I leave him in Estoni.

I was hoping to use Estoni as a forward base, since Drassen is now pretty far from the action. Is it in fact possible to base Skyrider out of Estoni, or is the Shank->Jake conversation just to get Jake to sell cans of fuel for the ground vehicles?

It is possible to refuel (land) the helicopter at Estoni, if you meet two conditions, first secure the central SAM site, secondly do the Shank/Jake conversation.

When you have done both these Skyrider will say something like: "don't tell men, I already heard you cleaned out Estoni), when you go back to the strategic screen.

It is also possible that Estoni have to be clear of enemies.


If you fulfill all of the above I guess it's a bug.

Thanks, cougar. I control the central SAM. Estoni was clear of enemies when I got there, so while I also control that sector, I didn't have to fight for it.
At least now I know that it *is* supposed to be possible, and the Skyrider quote that ought to acknowledge it.

I've encountered this bug. It seems to happen when I ONLY take Shank to Estoni, and then usually fire his ass afterwards. I recommend taking Shank and someone else to the sector, then having that other person talk to Jake.

If you flew Shank to Estoni in the helicopter, then try returning to Estoni on foot (or in a ground vehicle). It probably doesn't even need to be Shank that returns there, but make sure you talk to Jake again (he should say something like "I see you've got Breeham Druz workin' for ya"). I seem to remember that working in the past when I've had the same problem.

Noctural's suggestion worked!

Details for the record, in case anyone else has this problem:
I had flown 4 mercs into Estoni originally, including Shank; my IMP talked to Jake with Shank present, but Shank didn't do any talking. At that point I was in the situation described in the original post.
I marched my IMP out of the sector on and back in again on foot, leaving the other 3 mercs there the whole time. That was sufficient to trigger Skyrider's quote "...clearing up Estoni gave us a new option...", and now I can base the helicopter out of Estoni.

Thanks, all!

I know this is an old thread but I just wanted to confirm I had the same problem as described above. What worked for me was waiting for an enemy patrol to move through estoni and getting the message 'enemy forces have just overtaken estoni' then once I took friendly forces back there I got the message from skyrider.

Are you playing a mod? I'm pretty sure I've never seen that message in vanilla JA2.
