In addition to aluminium helicopter landing platforms, Bayards Heliport Solutions also designs, engineers, manufactures and installs helicopter parking spaces. These helicopter parking spaces can range from stand-alone parkings on site – for example a ground helicopter parking or an elevated helicopter parking hosting a car park underneath – to extensions for yet to be built or existing helicopter landing platforms, for example on the roof of a hospital building. These helicopter parkings allow the client to have multiple helicopters operating at the same time: one in the air and one or more on stand-by for example.
One can imagine that helicopter parkings are especially convenient for hospitals. Having the ability to host multiple helicopters at the same time on its helipad and helicopter parking space significantly increases the hospital’s accessibility. This in turn positively affects the hospital’s capacity to take in trauma patients, as more patients can be brought in within a shorter timeframe. And in an industry where every second counts, it is safe to say this is an crucial element within Helicopter Emergency Medical Services.
