Sheikh Khalifa Medical City (SKMC) New Helipads Design Study

Sheikh Khalifa Medical City

Abu Dhabi city, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

LEAPP was selected to study and design helicopter facilities for the SKMC in the centre of Abu Dhabi city. The project involved reviewing several possible surface and elevated helipad sites on the hospital property, and assessing the aeronautical, operational and technical feasibility of establishing helipads at these sites for emergency helicopter use. The study included the recommendation for a single elevated helipad for helicopters up to AW139 in size, and a single surface helipad for use by large helicopters up to S-92 in size, with the possibility of adding a second helipad site adjacent to the first for independent use. LEAPP prepared the layout plans for the helipads at the selected sites, and developed approach and take-off surfaces to enable operations to occur in compliance with ICAO Standards and in coordination with the operation of a nearby corporate/military airport. In addition, the study identified all physical and operational requirements for helipads including lighting, navigation equipment, fire fighting, and markings. This work was carried out to the standards required by the UAE, General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
