Royal Inland Hospital Heliport


At Kamloops Royal Inland Hospital, the new helipad juts out over the hillside. 17.5 metres in size, up from the outdated 13 metre landing area that lost its Transport Canada certification in 2010, the site allows landing helicopters up to 17.5 m in length and 7,711 kg takeoff weight.

The just-over-four-metre site cost $750,000 and services many far-flung, isolated parts of this community that are tough to reach by ground.
