Millport Helicopter Pad - Isle of Cumbrae
This is a facility for air ambulances to access the island of Cumbrae and it's located
on the shore just to the west of the town of Millport.
From this point you get a general idea of the sort of view a pilot would see.
It has a system where at night the pilot of the helicopter can switch the landing
lights on from the air on approach and this means no delay waiting for someone to
operate them on the ground. Very high tech and very clever.
The plaque gives the background to the new facility.
Not a common sign, missing from the Highway Code.
The masts just over the way are at Millport Yacht Club.
