EU exit

Please note that, in the event of the UK leaving the EU without a negotiated agreement, some CAA website content and application forms may continue to carry the EASA logo or reference the EU or EASA rather than the UK CAA in the short term. These will be updated in due course following the UK’s departure from the EU. In the meantime, the guidance provided and the application forms accessed via the CAA website portal will continue to be valid.

Title:Standards for helicopter landing areas at hospitals
Description:The purpose of the CAP is to promulgate design standards and options for new heliports and refurbishments located at hospitals in the United Kingdom. Design standards are based on the international standards and recommended practices in ICAO Annex 14 Volume II. A good heliport design will ensure it is 'safe and friendly' for helicopter operations, while accounting also for the clinical needs of a patient; so it's proximity to the Emergency Department (ED) affords rapid patient transfer without the complication of a secondary transfer by land ambulance.
