Pilot2ATC and Helicopters Procedures

Recommended Posts

While I was practicing takeoff and landing in San Juan PR, TJSJ in a helicopter (Bell 429) start wandering if P2A support helicopters. By reading some safety rules I found the following;

"While it's unusual for an airplane to land or takeoff from other than the runway, there's often no reason why helicopter operations need to be tied to the runway surface. The ability to operate from other areas is another way helicopters can avoid the flow of fixed-wing traffic."

So I started to search, collect and read related info.

So, do P2A support helicopter type?  Will Dave update it to support the same?  How difficult to do.

This is going to be an interesting topic

Thanks

Joe

P2A does not currently support Helicopter operations.  This is on the list for possible future enhancements.

Thanks,

Dave
