One of the greatest advantages of helicopter ownership is that you can go where you want when you want. The speed and flexibility afforded to helicopter owners results in immeasurable benefits in both business and personal life.
However, having purchased a helicopter many owners are frustrated by the regulatory restrictions placed on their helicopter’s movement and consequently they fail to realise the true potential benefit and flexibility that their helicopter can give them.
In the absence of a suitable helipad, helicopters are restricted to airport-to-airport operations by night and to Class C airspace (in the vicinity of cities) for SVFR (nighttime) operations. By providing a suitable helipad (to ICAO Annex 14 and IAA OAM 08/00 specifications) in your home or office location you will significantly improve your helicopter’s productivity and value for money by facilitating point to point operations by both day and night.
Rose Aviation has extensive experience in the design and approval of helicopter landing pads for private and public sector customers. Our design experience includes approved day/night and elevated/rooftop helipads. We have a close relationship with the suppliers of helipad equipment manufacturers such as Helitecnica and can offer a complete helipad package including; design (including ops procedure preparation), application for IAA approval, construction (including the provision of navaids / lights / approach indicators etc), commissioning, and ongoing audit/check of facilities.
We are confident that no other Irish Company has our range of experience and knowledge in helipad design and we can offer a tailored package for your needs. We have just been selected to design the helipad for the new hospital in Enniskillen (Sept 2009)
