Section 14.860 Responsibility of a Public-Use Heliport Certificate Holder
The holder of a Certificate of Approval for a public-use heliport, or his authorized agent, has the responsibility to enforce applicable federal, State and local aeronautical laws, and regulations of this Part. In addition to maintaining the terms and conditions outlined in the Certificate of Approval and its supporting Order, the Certificate Holder or his agent must:
a) Immediately designate any condition that may render an aircraft landing or takeoff hazardous by displaying prominently a contrasting "X" over the FATO/TLOF, that is visible from a minimum of 500' AGL, and notify the appropriate FAA-FSS.
b) Supervise or cause the supervision of all aeronautical activity in connection with, and in conformity with, the limitations prescribed in this Subpart H for a heliport.
c) Have authorized personnel in attendance at the heliport at all times during published business hours (excluding helistops). In the event that it is impractical to comply with the foregoing, the Certificate Holder or his agent shall post a prominent notice of the existing situation and provide a telephone number for assistance.
d) Ensure that the heliport has a phone number by which Division personnel can reach the Certificate Holder or his designee. In the event that the Certificate Holder or his designee is not available at the heliport number, an answering device at the heliport number shall provide a message identifying a reliable secondary number where the Certificate Holder or his designee can be reached. It is mandatory that any change in Certificate Holder/designee address or phone number be reported to the Division in writing, by phone or e-mail at the address provided for in Section 14.115(a), within 10 days after the change.
e) Prescribe local heliport rules that will be reviewed and approved, prior to their adoption, by the Division.
f) Develop and follow, on the property subject to his control, operational maintenance and repair practices, that will ensure that the landing area and approaches are free from hazards to the operation of aircraft.
g) Furnish the Division, upon request, information concerning aircraft using the heliport as an operating base, persons exercising managerial or supervisory functions at the heliport, accidents, and the nature and extent of aeronautical activity occurring at the heliport.
h) Obliterate all signs and markings that might indicate that the heliport is still operating, prior to the Division issuing an Order closing the heliport, in accordance with Section 14.120(c).
