Portable Helipad Landing Solutions

FEC Portapad offers the strength, safety and durability of a fixed static marine grade 6000 series helideck, whilst being entirely portable. Portapad has been conceived by the same engineers that have designed and built 500+ roof-top aluminium helipads.

Used on a daily basis by the US Border Control, Portapad can be easily constructed or dismantled by a four person team in four hours, with little or no site preparation required and is supplied with adjustable legs, elevating the Portapad to 1.5 metres off the ground. A highly cost effective flexible solution with low maintenance and relocation costs.
