Solutions & Issues
Baseline (Widescreen) Solution & Issues

Native support for 16:10 and 16:9. From the Options, Video options menu select your Interface resolution and Aspect ratio. Restart the game.
Other aspect ratios require editing a config file, see multi-mon solution below.

Ultra/Super-Wide (21:9/32:9) Specific Solution & Issues

Eyefinity / Surround Specific Solution & Issues

Start the game and navigate to Options, Video Options to set the following:
Aspect ratio: 12:3 - Triplehead.
Interface resolution: your desired resolution.

Quit to desktop and open the newly created file in any plain text editor:

Documents\Take On Helicopters\username.TakeOnHprofile

Look for these lines:

tripleHead=1; //this has adjusted the FOV for 3x 4:3 and centered the HUD, but the FOV is wrong for triple widescreen.

fovTop=0.75; //multiply your aspect ratio by this to get fovLeft
fovLeft=3; //replace with your actual AR x 0.75 (here 12:3 = 4; 4 x 0.75 =3)

So for 48:9 I use
fovLeft=3.999999; //48:9 x 0.75

For a wider base FOV use a 1:1 factor:
fovLeft=5.333333; //48:9
