Helicopter Landing Pads

Managed By: Icon Here Helicopter Pilots
This category is to log permanent locations of helicopter landing pads used for business, emergency or tourism.
Expanded Description:

There are many locations where helicopters are allowed to land, but only designated landing pads may be waymarked for this Category. That is a temporary or emergency landing site (e.g. scene of an accident or other emergency) would not fit within this category.

All areas or pads have to be designated landing/take-off sites. If you can not see the pad you must have some other type of marker or indication that a landing pad is located at a location such as a helicopter landing or taking off, windsock, safety netting, etc. located at or near the landing area.

Satellite imagery will not be accepted as proof of the landing pad (eg. Google Earth Images).


Instructions for Posting a Helicopter Landing Pads Waymark:
To post a new waymark the helipad must not be located within the boundaries of an airport, the Google map on the waymark page should identify any proximity issue. Airports in proximity to the landing pad should be greater than 1500 feet away.

Waymarks without 2 original photos that clearly demonstrate that this a landing pad will be declined.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
A new photo and description of what you found at the site would be appropriate.
