Helicopter Landing Approval/Plan

Department of Public Safety Services

In order to ensure the safety of the members of our community and to communicate timely information to the campus and community, the following procedure has been developed for immediate implementation.

The sponsoring department of helicopter landings is responsible for submitting the completed plan to the Manager of the Department of Public Safety by email at least four days before the event.

When selecting the location of the landing/take-off site, the sponsoring department should take into consideration the academic class schedule, noise and air current impact, and street and pedestrian traffic in that area. The sponsoring department is responsible for gaining approval of the landing/take-off site from the administrative unit prior to submitting the plan.

If the sponsoring department requires ground security assistance from Oregon State Police/Department of Public Safety, additional lead-time may be required.

The Department of Public Safety will assume the responsibility of notifying members of the University community and the Corvallis community (as appropriate) about the time, location, and purpose of the event.
