A heliport is a small area of land, water or structure (e.g. roof of the building, area at offshore mining station) that is used for landing and takeoffs of helicopters. Heliports can be of different sizes, having asphalt surface or grass surface, and equipped with heliport lighting system. There are two types of heliport lighting: fixed or permanent heliport lighting system and portable heliport lights. Both types of lights should meet specific aeronautical standards.
