How are you tackling the issues of the 2 mile heliport rule? It never dawned upon me until I actually got out a map of all airports with helipads and then plotted them on google map to get the radius that they cover. Here in Pittsburgh it takes out about 85% of the entire area within a 6 to 7 mile radius of the city and suburbs. Since heliports don't have any control tower or staff is it even possible to coordinate with a hospital to get permission? Does anyone know if you have to get written permission in advance? Has anyone run into this yet or thought about the implications of actually how limiting this is? I know this doesn't affect rural or urban areas that don't have many airports but this is a major issue in large markets. I will have my 333 sometime in the next couple weeks and I definitely do not want to violate the rules of it.
