To prepare for construction of Building Care at the hospital campus, the existing helicopter landing pad (helistop) will be relocated to the top of the Friends of Costco Building (also known as Forest A).

During the first week of October, Airlift Northwest will conduct two test flights to the new helistop location. These test flights will include both landing and takeoff, along with simulation work by Seattle Children’s personnel on the rooftop. In order to receive final approval for the new helistop, one of the test flights must take place at night. The flights will occur on the following dates and times:

  • Thursday, Oct. 4 at 10 p.m.
  • Friday, Oct. 5 at noon

The test flights will generate noise as the helicopter lands and takes off.

If everything goes according to plan, the new helistop location on the Forest A rooftop will be activated on Oct. 17 and will be used until Building Care opens in 2022.
