This paper reviews the work and considerations related to the use of helicopters in London, U.K. A systematic survey was undertaken of 44 square miles in Central London. the noise levels (dBA) which are found with various types of road and area at different periods of the day are summarized in tables, and some recommendations for indoor noise standards for dwellings and other types of buildings are tabulated. The Battersea Heliport is discussed, and comments are made on the noise level of individual helicopters, and the assessment of noise level acceptability. the opinion is expressed that decisions to designate sites for future development as terminals for large helicopters and potential STOL or VTOL aircraft should be made as soon as possible in order that compatible land-use zoning can be achieved in their vicinity.
