Portable Helipad Landing Solutions

Vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) technology is unmatched in its ability to access the most remote areas, transport necessities quickly and evacuate injured people. It is in such emergency situations, where lives are at stake, that the helicopter comes into its own.

FEC Heliports feel great pride at being able to help helicopter operations through our innovative range of products that improve safety at ad hoc and permanent Helicopter Landing Sites (HLS).

In order to support its partner operators, FEC Heliports has developed a range of portable helicopter landing systems and other strategic equipment designed for rapid deployment to enhance helicopter landing safety and provide effective marking at designated or ad-hoc helicopter landing areas.

Humanitarian, HEMS and Border Control operations

FEC Heliports product range, provides a cost-effective approach, shapes the most realistic and technically high-scoring offer while keeping safety as a number one priority. The success of the humanitarian, HEMS and Border Control operations consulting approach has already been seen in Central African Republic, Mali, Papua New Guinea, United States of America, United Kingdom and various other countries worldwide often in demanding yet highly visible environments.

“The Scottish Ambulance Service uses Glenforsa Airfield on Mull as a landing site for its helicopters 24hrs a day and undertakes in the region of 60 transfers per year from there. In February 2018 in order to improve our responsiveness and resilience FEC Heliports installed a HEMS Station at the airfield. The features of the HEMS Station allow us to ensure that the HEMS Star lights are continually charged using solar power. The status of the lights can be checked by SMS texts, whenever required, and hence are always ready to be deployed when required.
In the 6 months of operations, at Glenforsa, we have had no issues with the installation and have received excellent customer service and support from FEC.”
