Whilst every care is taken in compiling the data, Helipaddy Ltd, the editors, moderators and publishers will not be held responsible for inaccuracies or omissions. We compile the directory from information provided by pilots and establishments. We check site information with all establishments via email at least every 20 weeks but don't always receive a response. Establishments can change or remove the landing area without notice. All landings at sites in the directory require prior permission from the owner before landing is permitted and all pilots that register with Helipaddy agree to these terms. It is solely the responsibility of the pilot to obtain this prior permission and Helipaddy Ltd will not be held liable for any incident that may occur in the act of flying to or landing at any site mentioned within Helipaddy.
