Abstract:

A helicopter performance related heliport classification method is developed which accommodates an applicable range of operating conditions and factors which impact helicopter performance. Dimensional values for use in planning both real estate and airspace surfaces are determined for application to the identified heliport classifications. Those values are incorporated into generalized guidelines for heliport planners to meet site-specific and non-standard operational conditions. Requirements for flight manual performance charts and published heliport information are also identified. Author
