Heliport St. Johann im Pongau shines in new splendor!
The most innovative heliport in the Alps goes into operation.
With the Ground breaking on 18 08 2014 and an investment of €7 million, our new heliport and main base for Heli Austria GmbH will be completed in August 2015, after a year of construction.
After years of 'temporary', our team was finally able to move into our new home.New offices, workshops, storage rooms, a common room and rest rooms for our rescue crew, and a new, modern maintenance and storage hangar are now available to our employees. Even a heli-museum was thought of!
Modern and purist could describe our new workplace, nestled in the beautiful countryside right next to the Salzach.
We are extremely pleased with our new, beautifully done buildings, that every work day will bring us joy.
On the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd of October 2015, our new hangar will be officially opened and inaugurated.
On October 4, from 10:00 to 17:00 we cordially invite all aviation enthusiasts to our Heli DAY 2015.
We are offering flights for all ages, the showing of emergency vehicles of the Red Cross, boat trips with the Water Rescue Bischofshofen, a climbing tower from the Mountain Rescue Bischofshofen, and the showing of our ambulance helicopter "Martin 1". Also, the parachutists from HSV will give their best show. Small delicacies and drinks will also be provided.
Hangar tours can unfortunately not be offered due to the numerous visitors expected at Heli DAY.
We look forward to seeing you and hope for sunny flying weather. Should the weather Gods be unkind to us on the 4th October, the Heli DAY will be postponed to Sunday, the 11th October.
