Aren't there some runways for helicopters as well, to increase their performance when taking off or landing? One example could be the Silverstone heliport in England. What is their numbering like? (just 18/36 or 18H/36H?) 13:33, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Some heliports have an elongated FATO which may resemble a short runway and will accomodate helicopters with lower performance characteristics including single engine helicopters. While the elongated FATO may resemble a runway it is still a heliport.


Should we have an example of a makeshift heliport? We have a nice image File:US Navy 110323-N-8646H-001 An aerial view of a helicopter landing zone near an evacuee center shows a .jpg available. (talk) 05:43, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

I guess this image does not reference to the heliport and should be removed, but maybe I'm wrong? -- kocio (talk) 09:06, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
