Helidrome Architecture


The helidrome, also known as helipad or helicopter platform, is a cleared space, an absence of obstacles rather than a construction by itself. The modern designs of helidromes lift the platform above the surrounding buildings, seeking a free approach path for the helicopter and a commanding view. Helidrome Architecture explores the history and design of helipads from a topic of engineering to a topic of architecture.

Aviation research has a strong presence in the field of psychology where aviation has pioneered current practices of selection on the basis of psychological tests. In later years, aviation took on the study of safety and much research is still being generated in this field. Next to research on helipad design, a line of research has been developed on aviation safety in particular for helicopters and other general aviation aircraft.
