Air Synapsis awarded heliport project

Posted 5 December 2016 · Add Comment

Air Synapsis is currently designing the world second largest elevated heliport to be located at a central location in Dubai.

The facility is designed to accommodate two helicopters and is expected to become operational end of 2017 following the issuance of its GCAA Landing Area Acceptance Certificate. The heliport will be the first in UAE to be equipped with touchdown and identification marking lighting systems.

“The new regulation is significantly enhancing operational safety while being a real catalyst for the development of helicopter infrastructures across the county. We clearly see solid basis for the growth of point to point helicopter shuttle services,” said Karim Hijazi, Air Synapsis’ managing director.

In 2016 Air Synapsis has been awarded 12 heliport projects, including the design of several elevated hospital helipads. Hijazi added: “The dozen of new hospital heliports currently in development in the UAE will significantly improve Helicopter Emergency Medical Services operations over the next few years.”
