Helicopter operations


Aerodromes have specific procedures for helicopter landings depending on the type of aerodrome:

  1. Controlled airports (red)
    If the helipad is within the local air traffic control area (CTR) of the aerodrome, you need to request permission in advance from the Operational Helpdesk by e-mail.
  2. Uncontrolled airports (blue) 
    If the helipad is within 4000 m of the aerodrome, you need to coordinate with the Airport Authority in advance

The Safe Use of Airports and Other Areas Regulations sets rules for the use of areas other than aerodromes by helicopters.
