FAQ n.134936

Are helicopter-only procedures required at heliports?

Answer

Landing surfaces other than instrument runways are not addressed by the PBN IR. In this regard, heliports having their own landing areas to operate, i.e., FATO and TLOF, rather than runways, are not within scope of the PBN IR.  Instrument approach procedures, standard instrument departures (SID) and standard arrival routes (STAR) at heliports are excluded from the PBN IR, and, therefore, there are no specific requirements for CAT H procedures at locations where there are no instrument runways, i.e., locations dedicated to helicopter-only operations.
