Heliport and helicopter station - one of the important things in the infrastructure of big cities and remote places. This place-based helicopter, where they are served and taking off or landing. Basically, these locations are located at the airport, on rooftops (LCD, business centers and private), near major hospitals, military bases, on bases MOE or other emergency services and special forces, private and spare airfields, ships, marine stations and other prepared places where without the help of a helicopter is difficult to reach.

A method of labeling helicopters very similar to the marking of cars or special vehicles in cities and towns. For example, law enforcement agencies represent one color Helicopter with their marks of distinction, rescue service - very different, the Air Force - in the same way. But in the case of sites all accept the same type of view, because the rules are almost identical for all.

 

An important part for any helicopter pilot is to know the exact location of the VI. The most optimal and effective assistant in this matter is the map. Helipad, as well as the usual parking lot, is indicated on the map in order to simplify the landing of the pilot. But if in the case of a car you can park almost anywhere, then everything is much more complicated with a helicopter. The helicopter can moor in specially equipped places. Especially when it comes to sites located in cities. Not every house will be able to take it to the roof and not collapse or damage the device. In this matter there are many laws and rules. Specially equipped VIs are permanent. 

But rules about landings and takeoffs from special places do not apply to all classes of helicopters and not in all cases. The history contains many examples of landings of air vehicles in inappropriate places. Among them, the most common venues for combat and rescue operations. Such VIs are called temporary. In these situations, it was just as important to have the landmarks of the marked temporary helipads on the maps. And this is important because someone’s life depends on the timely appearance of the rescue helicopter at the scene of the accident.
