After flying around in helicopter it ended up in Alma I 14. Helicopter
is stuck there. When I try to command Skyrider to do something, he just
says "Can't hangout any longer, Cap. I gotta head to base before
I run out of fuel.".

I tried loading mercs to helicopter, but the Assign column entry has
vehicle grayed out so it is not possible to choose that.

Seems like I have to finish this revolution in Arulco without the
helicopter. Bummer.

Just to make sure: If you start time compression, the heli does not make its way to Drassen airport on his own?

I have never seen that.

You can try (hope) to indirectly unlock the helicopter:

In the case that is is one of your mercs who locked it, try to assign all of them to something else than a squad (train militia, trainer, student) and advance time to the next hour, and then next day if the helicopter still doesn't move. I rarely play with 18 mercs and never saw this bug, that's why I think it could be possible that one of them locked the helicopter (helicopter functions deal with too few mercs).

Try to move some of your mercs to the destination sector of the helicopter (Drassen airport) and go to the tactical screen there to load the sector (but keep some mercs in another sector that you can load at will too). Try to move your mercs (in the airport) on the tiles where the helicopter lands. If the helicopter is scheduled to land soon, you shouldn't be able to step on them and you will quickly be moved to the strategic screen. Otherwise step on them. The code has a function to clear the landing zone of the helicopter by moving people away and you want to trigger it (and see if it is ever called) with the hope that it helps to reset the helicopter. There are an hourly and daily update functions too. Advance to the next hour and next day to play with them. And play with the sector loading function by loading the tactical screen in the other sector and in the airport again.

we had the exactly same bug in 1.13, so it seems the bug is an old vanilla bug.

I tried on two trips to Drassen to have mercs stand on the helicopter landing pad. No help, they could enter the pad and stand there, no reaction from helicopter or the helicopter pilot whatshisname.

After visiting Estoni with Skank, the pilot did wake up to declare now Estoni can be used to fuel the helicopter and no need to fly back to Drassen anymore.

The helicopter has been stuck there for days in game time.
