When i am confronted with being asked for a landing fee I always enquire if I come by car will they charge me for parking. Usually the problem goes away. If you are in N. Devon try the Saunton Sands Hotel. Good lunch no landing fee and 100 m from a great surfing beach.

All Helicopters that land in the beautiful Abbeyglen Castle Hotel in stunning Connemara in the west of Ireland are greeted with red carpet rolled out to the chopper as you shut down the engine and a bottle of bubbly for you to enjoy. I landed there once as a pax in a b407 just to get fuel as the hotel has a Jet A1 bowser and the pilot was like, we only landed to get fuel, whats with the red carpet and champers!!! They opended the bottle and i necked a glass before we started up again Cool Oh! And no landing fee.... Renvyle House Hotel http://www.renvyle.com is also another fantastic place to go

I now have a list of helipads around my local area where i can stop for some lunch, However, my concern is the low flying rule says that " you are exempt the 500 foot rule if landind at a licensed aerodrome. so if some swanky hotel if offering there lawn as a helipad does this count as a "licensed" helipad.

You do not need to take off or land at a licensed aerodrome to be exempt from the 500ft rule.

The part of the rule that mentions that is to do with practice approaches and checking of nav aids as well as landing or taking off at these places.

The next paragraph in the exemptions is quite clear in it states.

Quote:
(ii) Any aircraft shall be exempt from the 500 feet rule when landing and taking off in accordance with normal aviation practice or air-taxiing.


Don't get caught foul of other rules which you are not exempt from, but that particular one is a misnomer in this case.
