Submit your comments via CRT

The objective of this NPA is to introduce certification specifications (CS) and guidance material (GM) for the design of surface-level VFR heliports located at aerodromes that fall under the scope of Regulation (EC) 216/2008 (Basic Regulation). EASA is proposing this issue of CS-HPT-DSN in order to support the aerodrome operators and the airport industry who, together with their respective competent authorities, carry out the certification of aerodromes in accordance with Commission Regulation (EU) No 139/2014. Where aerodromes that are in the scope of the Basic Regulation contain located surface-level visual flight rules (VFR) heliports, the certification process of these heliports would need to take into account the envisaged CS-HPT-DSN.

This NPA proposes to introduce the CS and GM mostly in accordance with the ICAO standards and recommended practices (SARPs) included in ICAO Annex 14, Aerodromes Volume II, Heliports, Fourth Edition (Including Amendment 7) and best industry practices.
