Spectre

Other mistake: When flying the grey Hughes 500 helicopter off the crater, the pilot sits on the right side, but in a Hughes 500 the pilot always sits on the left side.

Suggested correction: Helicopter pilots always sit on the right, as the collective lever is on the left, and to use the left seat means climbing over it every time you enter.

This corrector seems to be missing the point. The collective lever being on the left is why helicopter pilots-in-command started sitting on the right (while in airplane the PIC sat on the left). However, helicopters began developing dual collective levels that allowed piloting from left or right, so this idea of "climbing over" the lever is a moot point. But, for whatever design reason, pilots of MD 500's sit on the left, not the right.
