First, a thank you to LukeJC for teaching me how to mod JC3, providing me the tools to do it, and informing me how to create a VTOL effect for an arbitrary JC3 vehicle. Also, his VTOL Vistosa mod is great.
This mod gives the standard Rebel Drop Thunderhawk VTOL capabilities. The secondary weapon button is standard VTOL takeoff, and provides a hover effect. The primary weapon button is an alternate VTOL takeoff / accelerated takeoff / midair dogfight dodge maneuver. The VTOL will bring heat down on you, so be careful where you use it. Takeoff is safest with the standard VTOL mode, but the alternate takeoff can be interesting.
Enjoy a VTOL in Just Cause 3.
More information on things can be found here (https://justcause3mods.com/mods/vtol-vistosa/), LukeJC's mod. I would also like to thank Tarry, as I used the excel sheet Luke mentions for this mod.
I will also second Luke's comment:
"If you plan on making a video review on this mod, please be sure to give proper credit, that is, linking this page, or at least the mod website so that viewers do actually know where to download this mod from and so we get feedback on our work."

To install mods at all, you need to open up steam, then find Just Cause 3 in your list of games. Right-click it and click settings. Now click "Set launch options" and a new window will open up. Copy this:
--vfs-fs dropzone --vfs-archive patch_win64 --vfs-archive archives_win64 --vfs-fs .
and paste it in there, then click "Done" to save it.
Now go to this filepath: Steam-folder> steamapps> common> Just Cause 3
Now create a new folder called Dropzone and you are done with setting things up.
Now copy the editor and settings folder from the download into your dropzone folder
>>> to remove all mods, simply remove the launch options
