Banff Mineral Springs Helipad
The Mineral Springs Hospital helipad has been identified by Alberta Health Services as in need of upgrading in order to accommodate the new STARS helicopter fleet and to satisfy Transport Canada’s regulatory requirements. The current helipad, constructed in 1998 (98DP35) is not able to accommodate some of the larger aircraft now operated by STARS, forcing these aircraft to utilize off-site landing areas such as the helipad in the compound, which increases patient risk. Alberta Health Services and their consultant WSP Group have been working with the Town of Banff since mid-2015 on a proposed new helipad design which if approved would begin construction in the summer of 2016.
