  • $\begingroup$ Do you mean Helipads that are often seen on rooftops in cities? The ones I've noticed are only big enough for one craft at a time. Or do you mean at a more remote location, like part of a pier, or an airport, where there is room for more than 1? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ We already have multiple questions about building an airport in the US, e.g. here, here, and the basic answer is always the same: construction ultimately depends on local (state/county) zoning regulations. What exactly do you need to know that isn't already answered in those questions? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @CrossRoads I'm saying constructed both on rooftops and those in remote locations, however by different aircraft trypes, I mean some have more weight than others and others have wheels instead of blades or rails as landing gear $\endgroup$ Commented May 2, 2018 at 7:23
  • $\begingroup$ @Pondlife I'd like to know the specific guidelines with regards to construction and approval of heliports like it has to be 5.this X 5.this diameter or wide, it has to have x to x to x concrete mixture advisory on non landing paved area at least 10.this x 10.this area. It must have a 20.this x 20.this clear surrounding otherwise we won approve! If you let trees grow and continue to land you will flout the safety rules and go to jail, minimum x years to life... measure ments in Scientific units like metres, centimeters and millimetres will be great appreaciated. Also Kgs and grams $\endgroup$ Commented May 2, 2018 at 7:41

The FAA publishes an Advisory Circular on heliport design. It applies to heliports serving helicopters with a single rotor. I don't believe that there are any regulations regarding "ownership". They just have to be operated in compliance with appropriate FAA, state and local regulations (but these can get complicated)
