Sydney Announces Floating Helipad

City of Sydney

After lacking an inner city helipad for tourism and private flights for a few decades, Sydney is now happily announcing the construction of a floating helipad, which is effectively a pair of helicopter landing zones on a barge anchored in the cities harbor to give those using the helipad fantastic views of the city on their way in and out by chopper.

Wealthy executives and tourists visiting Sydney will be able to flit directly to the city’s famous harbour after the government announced Tuesday it will allow a floating heliport.

The heliport will be the first in the city for more than 20 years and will bring passengers from the airport to the famous white sails of the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge within minutes.

“The Sydney Harbour floating heliport is a new signature experience that will help entice visitors to Sydney and make it easy for them to enjoy a birds’ eye view of the harbour,” New South Wales state Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner said.
