China starts building helipad at fifth Antarctica station


China started building a helipad at its fifth Antarctic scientific research station that is located on the coast of the Ross Sea on January 31. Covering an area of more than 1,100 square meters, the helipad is capable of accommodating two helicopters at the same time.

Given the unique geographical environment, there is a substantial demand for the use of helicopters in Antarctica. Thus, the presence of a helipad has become an indispensable infrastructure requirement for every scientific research station there.
