Helipaddy is the world's largest off-airfield landing site database.  With over 12,000 landing sites across the world, including hotels, restaurants, museums and many more, we are the go-to tool for when you need to #knowwheretoland.

 

Our Mission 

At Helipaddy, our mission is to improve General Aviation.  Through effective knowledge sharing, we aim to make helicopter flying more enjoyable, accessible and straightforward.  

 

Helipaddy encourages considerate flying, especially noise awareness and the respecting of neighbouring residents and their animals, as well as other guests.

 

Our Story 

Tired of looking through outdated travel guides and flight manuals, founders Paddy Wills and Sarah Chenevix-Trench started Helipaddy as a personal interest project among pilot friends looking for new places to land, particularly hotels and restaurants.  Since then, we have grown into a global pilot community where members can discover, identify and comment on heli-friendly locations, connect with each other and share new sites with friends.


Getting Started

The Helipaddy database is accessible through our mobile apps (Android and iOS). The apps are free to download and there is no cost to join our global pilot community. We offer two types of membership: 

 

Pilot - Browse Helipaddy’s comprehensive list of global landing sites, communicate directly with site owners, plan and log flights and connect and share information with friends.  

 

Owner - Advertise your site to thousands of helicopter pilots seeking new and exciting places to land.  If you own or operate a heli-friendly business, please make sure to check out our landing site owners FAQ to make sure your site is listed.
