    Regulating hospital helipad

    Has anyone dealt with aproving a hospital with a helipad? I'm looking for what types of issues must be dealt with to mitagate possible safety, noise, or other propblems associated with helicopters. I realize the FAA and out state's DOT regulates helipads, but I need to make sure there won't be any negative impacts on the surrounding residential properties.

    FAA is little to no help. No standards, only guidelines. In my most recent experience I stopped a pilots' dorm, and the appeals board overruled me on the residential/noise issue. After four years it is now accepted in the neighborhood. Ask a pilot what to look for if you can.
