Aviation entrepreneurs, charter operators, training schools, operations management companies, and navigation apps can now all plug in to the Helipaddy API to utilise the unique self-moderating and information-rich database.
Helipaddy’s mobile apps and web platform are used by thousands of pilots from around the globe - but has humble beginnings here in the UK, founded in 2014 by two british heli enthusiasts who simply wanted to know where to land. Fast forward to today, and contributions from the growing Helipaddy community have led to massive expansion of the Helipaddy database beyond our shores, with over 10,000 pads giving coverage in most countries around the world. Helipaddy is proud to announce that they are now giving aviation companies operating in the UK access to the most complete landing site database ever compiled, through their commercial API.
There is a free tier for those only needing data on ICAO-code aerodromes and the levels of access scale up through to enterprise access subscription to the entire Helipaddy database. By providing this information at low (to no) monthly cost, Helipaddy hopes to help promote the modernisation of the UK aviation industry and allow for innovation and growth within the sector.
All tiers of the API are designed to optimise searching for heli-friendly sites by specific coordinates, with user only requiring coordinates and a radius to search within. API consumers can also easily build maps of any region. More information is provided at helipaddy.com/about/API for those interested in leveraging Helipaddy’s work for their own endeavours.
To connect to the Helipaddy API, you can get in touch with the Helipaddy team on 020 3637 7595, or send them an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. For operators and those who manage helipads and landing sites around the country, please get in touch with Helipaddy to ensure your site is marked as allowing commercial landings so that you can benefit from the exposure generated by the API feed.
