The two top operators Pawan Hans and Prabhatam Aviation have been operating for last 8 years. Earlier there were only two Helipads in Kedarnath and this meant that only Helicopters could land at one time. Now under the new and improved circumstances the Nehru Mountaineering Institute had sanctioned the construction and installation of 40*80 meter long helipad which allows the landing and takeoff of 5 helicopters at once. This helipad will be constructed behind the ancient Kedarnath Shrine. Apart from this a 100*50 meter helipad which can accommodate MI 26 helicopter has already been built. The Nehru Mountaineering Institute Head Instructor Colonel Ajay Kothiyal has released a statement that the area behind the Kedarnath temple and the base camp are good areas for accommodating the gigantic helipads. There will be the facility for accommodating 5-10 helicopters in these helipads simultaneously. In emergency situations, there is the provision for large helicopter landings which can be used for tourist evacuations.
