India's first dedicated(समर्पित) 'heliport' inaugurated in Delhi
The country's first integrated (को एकीकृत) heliport was inaugurated in the national capital on Tuesday. Civil Aviation Minister A Gajapathi Raju said it is the first of its kind facility in South Asia. Built by state-owned Pawan Hans Ltd, the heliport consists of a terminal building, having a capacity of 150 passengers, four hangars with parking capacity for 16 helicopters and nine parking bays(खाड़ी). The heliport also has a maintenance, repair and overhaul(कायापलट) (MRO) facility for the upkeep of Pawan Hans fleet as well as for the third-party maintenance work. The commencement of services from the heliport is also expected to reduce congestion(भीड़) at the Delhi airport, which currently handles about 40-50 helicopter arrivals and departures on an average per day besides the large-scale fixed-wing operations. Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha, Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal and Pawan Hans CMD B P Sharma, among others, were present at the ceremony.
