The purpose of this project is operation of Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) on hospital heliports in adverse meteorological conditions. This goal will be achieved by meeting individual targets in each period in accordance with the scheduled workplan.
Helicopter infrastructure for model heliports shall be constructed during the first period. Following works shall be performed beforehand: Determine key technical parameters (airspace characteristics, heliport parameters, legal scope, HEMS helicopters, influence on patients). Construction of arrival, approach, missed approach, and departure procedures using points in space based on GNSS shall follow i.e. design of descend gradients and lateral guidance. This infrastructure shall be optimized during test operations so that it could later be validated. The second period is represented by test operation leading to validation for specific qualified HEMS operators (e.g. ALFA helicopters). By terminating test operation we understand the phase of theoretical and practical verification of construction of the subsystem of instrument procedures and creation of controlled zone oudside the airport for model heliports. Afterwards we will be able to determine applicability of instrument flight procedures in congested areas, set limitation for operations/minimum values, which shall - in the final period of this project - lead us towards creation and implementation of certified methodology for helicopter operations to HEMS heliports in congested areas.
