The Downtown Manhattan Heliport continues to exemplify our commitment to provide first-class service to our customers since its inception on December 8, 1960. The first of its kind in many ways, the DMH was the first heliport in the United States to be certified for scheduled passenger helicopter service by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
Currently, the Heliport remains the only heliport Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 139 certified in the country. This certification requires the heliport to meet or exceed numerous safety standards established by the FAA. It is also the first public heliport with a semi-automatic fire protection foam system and the first to use a barge for aircraft parking.
