      It spawns at the docks east of the air port I’m level 38 and still getting them there they are quite useful especially to transport tanks across the map

    When I get to the airport I look for the Buzzard helicopter. Sometime there’s a cargo bob or police chopper. I blow them both up and drive away for a couple of minutes. When I come back 90% of the time the Buzzard chopper will spawn at that location.
    I love this game and have been playing it from day 1 (Sept 17) and I’m still not bored. Pot + GTA = FUN!
