The West 30th Street Heliport (IATA: JRA, ICAO: KJRA, FAA LID: JRA) is a heliport on the west side of Manhattan in New York City. The heliport opened on September 26, 1956.

Operations

Since this is a heliport and not an airport, there are no Instrument Procedures for this facility. The level of boating traffic in the neighboring Hudson River requires that pilots exercise caution in making their approach to the heliport's landing pad.

Tourist flights out of the 30th Street Heliport are scheduled to move to Downtown Manhattan Heliport on March 31, 2010 and the heliport itself is scheduled to relocate by on December 31, 2012 as a result of a court agreement between helicopter operators and Friends of Hudson River Park who took action to enforce the Hudson River Park Act which banned tourism flights from that location.

Statistics

73% of the flights are air taxi, 16% general aviation, 10% commercial, and less than 1% military.

Accidents and incidents

  • On June 25, 1968, a Brantly 305 on a sightseeing flight crashed into the Hudson River shortly after takeoff from the West 30th Street Heliport. The pilot and all five passengers were rescued.
  • On December 31, 1997, an Aérospatiale AS-355 returning from a sightseeing flight crashed into a building at the West 30th Street Heliport. Eight people were injured in the accident.
  • On July 7, 2007, a Eurocopter EC130 B4 returning to the West 30th Street Heliport from a sightseeing flight had an engine malfunction and made a controlled landing in the Hudson River, deploying its emergency pontoons. The pilot and seven passengers were rescued from private boats.
  • On August 8, 2009, nine people were killed when a Liberty Helicopters sightseeing helicopter collided with a private plane shortly after takeoff from the West 30th Street Heliport. Both aircraft were operating on visual flight rules.
