Does anybody know where the highest helicopter landing pad is located? Also, what are the restrictions on having a helicopter landing pad on a building? (height, area, etc.)

Please post all your helicopter lading pad pics!

Good question. I have no idea. But I don't see why there would be a limit to what height a helicopter can land at (as long as it's less than the max operating altitude obviously)

I think this is the tallest. At 310m, the US Bank Tower in Los angeles has the highest helipad as of today (i think) apparently all los angeles highrises have helipads for evacuation purposes. (is this correct?)

Yes every buildings over 10 stories is required to have a helipad, hence no tall buildings with a spire in Los Angeles

Cool Helipad. If this, (Al Rajhi Tower, 400m, Riyadh) gets built, it might come close to beating the US Bank Tower in LA

...I also thought there were plans to have a helipad on the Burj Al Alam. Ive seen renders of the crown opening up to reveal a landing pad. Does anybody have those pictures? Was that idea scrapped? At 501m this would easily be the worlds highest helipad, surpassing the Guangzhou West Tower's helipad (438m)

EDIT: didn't saw you posted the same picture I did, because there didn't appear one in your post until after I posted this.

Helipads

Does anybody know where the highest helicopter landing pad is located? Also, what are the restrictions on having a helicopter landing pad on a building? (height, area, etc.)

In regards to restrictions, there are set requirements about the design of the helipad and the approaches.

There are also requirements for fire fighting and the delivery options of the fire media.

Helicopters and the pilots who fly them will come under restrictions and these are all dependant on each individual helipad.

There should also be specialist operational procedures in place for safety, daily management, procedures and crash procedures.

Any helipad used for high rise rescue should consider more intense specialist procedures.

If you have any more questions just message me.
