India's first dedicated 'heliport' inaugurated in Delhi

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.
