Have your say on physical and operational standards for heliports

Date published: 4 May 2022

We are consulting on a draft Advisory Circular (AC) that will provide guidance and information on physical and operational standards for heliports.
Have your say

Heliports are not regulated, so the intent of this AC is to provide some foundational specifications to help Helicopter Landing Site (HLS) owners and operators design, construct, maintain and operate their facilities in line with international standards and recommended practices.

In draft AC 139.R-01, heliport owners and operators are provided with guidance on:

  • heliport site selection
  • physical characteristics
  • obstacle control
  • visual aids
  • emergency response facilities
  • aeronautical data.

Provide your feedback on the Consultation Hub before 1 June 2022.
