Heliport vs helipad
The term heliport typically refers to the whole facility including associated hangars, taxiways, terminals and windsocks. A helipad refers to the actual landing/takeoff area (which may be located on an aerodrome, heliport, or as a standalone facility).
- Either create a closed way (or multipolygon relation for some complex shapes) around the extent of the airport land (often co-incident with a barrier of some kind).
- Or draw a node in the center of the airport and add aeroway=heliport + name=*
|icao=*||4-letter code issued by the ICAO.|
|addr=*||Contact address for management|
|operator=*||The name of the operator of the airport|
|phone=*||Contact phone number for airport management.|
|ifr=yes/no||see Instrument flight rules|
