Can it be flown?
I have heard many rumours about the Skyhook, one mainly about it will not be flyable. In one of the missions and a couple of screenshots, not Luis (The BOGT protaganist) is flying it, he is just standing on it. Anybody heard rumours about it, any suggestions?. GSF4L 28 October 2009, 19:58 (UTC)
- where did you hear this? - EELRAH
- Yes it can be flown but you need to do a quick exploit which is very Difficult LegendaryFroggy 01:30, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
The Skylift can be obtained on the mission For the man who has everything.But getting it is not easy.It took me many tries to get it. you must watch the last cutscene and when able quickly spawn a buzzard, quickly fly up to him, move him to the air port, and shoot himflying it.Click to watch a video of how to do it.

Is it flown by LCPD?
Should we say on the page that its flown by Liberty City Police? I mean, it clearly transports a LC NOOSE APC and in Caught With Your Pants down it's flown by police pilotsGLTh3Pr0 (talk) 14:54, September 2, 2015 (UTC)
- Not really. It can't be stated that it belongs to the LCPD since there's no proper proof of that, the owner remains unknown. AndreEagle17 15:51, September 2, 2015 (UTC)
Regarding the Skylift's texture map
I am doubtful that the Skylift uses the exact same texture map as the Cuban 800. Could someone please verify the Skylift's texture map and change the "Detail" image in the Current Design Gallery if necessary? Thank you.
- It does indeed use the Cuban 800 texture map. You have to keep in mind how texture mapping works: the mapping is customized to choose coordinates of a 2D texture sheet and wrap them around a 3D shape - those coordinates don't have to select everything. In this case, the "Cuban 800" markings are not included in the selection. It saves Rockstar having to create new textures. Monk Talk 18:08, December 1, 2017 (UTC)
