Indianapolis Downtown Heliport is a heliport located in the city centre of Indianapolis. The heliport was opened in 1969 as a private use heliport under the name Beeline Heliport and in 1979 was turned into a public facility. In 1983 the FAA picked the heliport to be part of its National Prototype Demonstration Heliport Program, a project launched to illustrate the usefulness and viability of full-service downtown heliports in the United States, and as a result it received considerable funding for improvements and expansion. It currently has one main pad for landing, an apron and two hangars. IFR approaches are possible.
