Millport Helicopter Pad - Isle of Cumbrae

Millport Helicopter Pad in Millport on Cumbrae, North Ayrshire, Scotland

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.
