Abstract:

Guidelines for snow and ice control on heliports are presented for the purpose of both enhancing the operational utility of heliports, and employing the unique capabilities of the rotorcraft to the maximum extent. These guidelines consider manual methods of snow and ice control such as plowing and chemical application, and automated methods through pavement heating systems. Cost and design considerations are provided for each system. Benefitcost decision guidelines are provided with estimated annual operating cost data for 32 U.S. cities, and six snow and ice control methods. In addition, selection guidelines provide a methodology to assist heliport planners and designers with the selection of the most appropriate snow and ice control system.
