11 — MARKING OF AERODROME FACILITIES FOR HELICOPTERS
11.1 At aerodromes used by both helicopters and fixed wing aircraft, specific markings are
required of those facilities on the aerodrome which are provided for the exclusive use of
helicopters.
Helicopter landing and lift-off area markings
11.2 Where a specific area is provided for the landing and lift-off of helicopters (other than
from the runway), the spot is to be marked by a circle (the aiming circle), painted white, with
an inside radius of 6m and a line width of 1.0m. An H marking is to be provided, located
centrally within the aiming circle, and aligned with the orientation of the helicopter landing
direction. The dimensions of the H marking are to be 6m high and 3m wide, with a line width
of one metre, and painted white, as shown in Fig 11.53.

Fig 11.53 - Helicopter landing and lift-off marking
Helicopter apron markings
11.3 Helicopter apron markings comprise taxi guidelines, lead-in lines and helicopter
parking position markings as set out below. Markings for taxi guidelines and lead-in lines to
dedicated helicopter parking positions are to be the same as for fixed wing aircraft.
Helicopter parking position markings
11.4 Helicopter parking position markings help pilots to safely and accurately steer and
position helicopters on an apron. Where a dedicated helicopter parking position is provided
on a sealed, concrete or asphalt apron, it is to be marked with the letter H painted yellow, 4m
high, 2m wide with a line width 0.7m, and conform to the shape and proportions as shown in
Fig 11.54. The letter H is to be located centrally in the parking position and aligned with the
desired orientation of the helicopter when parked. This marking also serves as the parking
position designator.

Helicopter taxi guideline designation
11.5 The helicopter taxi guideline designation is to be provided where a taxi guideline leads
to a parking position which is restricted to helicopters only. Where an apron contains both
fixed wing and dedicated helicopter parking positions, taxi guidelines leading to dedicated
helicopter parking positions are to be marked with the designator `H', 2m high and painted
yellow, at their divergence from the aircraft taxi guidelines, as shown in Fig 11.55. These
designations are to be located and oriented in such a way that they can be seen by the critical
aircraft 15m away on the taxi guideline.
