heliport reference point

heliport reference point

A heliport reference point is normally established for a heliport not co-located with an aerodrome. In the case of a heliport that is co-located with an aerodrome, the established aerodrome reference point will also be the reference point for the heliport. The heliport reference point is located at the center of the heliport. This is indicated to the aeronautical authority in degrees, minutes, and seconds.
