Heliports deserve special attention. In many cases heliports are located in noise sensitive areas or in densily populated urban areas, creating significant incompatibility issues. Finding a balance between apparently opposite interests is usually not easy. Thorough knowledge of helicopter noise and operations is required to maximize operations with an acceptable noise impact.
Since its creation Anotec has been participating in research projects dedicated to reduce helicopter noise. This has enabled us to develop state-of-the-art tools and databases that can now be exploited to address the noise issues at heliports. Especially the design of flyable low noise flight procedures is one of our key capabilities.
