What are some good airports with helipads?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to do more exploring and sight seeing with the Airbus H135 helicopter. Can you guys recommend some good spots that are helicopter friendly such as airports/downtown cities with parking spots specifically for helicopters.

@captain420 https://flightsim.to/c/scenery/helipads/ Also just by flying around major cities look at the tops of the skyscrapers for them, which are there in the default scenery too, eg LA many of them! Also hospitals and medical facilities.

I have flown downtown tokyo with the heli and have discovered there are MANY skyscrapers with landing pads.  have fun, make sure you try it at night as well. good times.

If you dont have a VR headset yet I would recommend the HP G2.  You will enjoy to no end flying around in the heli in VR landing from one rooftop to another.  My latest is flying between the building in manhattan at street level.  Being you have a 3090 like me, you will get adequate performance and very good quality.
