A land onwer in the city I work for has inquired about the possibility of locating a heli-pad for his helicopter in a buffer zone. His property is adjacent to a single-family development on one side and a rail line on the other. Our ordinance for the Buffer zone does not expressly prohibit heli-pads. I would think the FAA has requirements for distance to homes. Also, fly-over space for a nearby Air Force base may prevent it regardless. Would like to know if anyone has had a similar experience and what happened.
