The first official helipad of Montenegro was installed in the marine and tourist center of Porto Montenegro, which is located in the resort town of Tivat.
This specially equipped space for take-off and landing of helicopters is located in the far north-western part of the Porto Montenegro residential complex, on a small peninsula between the outdoor pool of the Porto Montenegro yacht club and the building of the former Army House in the Selianovo district - now the administrative building of Adriatic Marinas. At this place, a concrete runway with a diameter of 12.5 meters was built with access roads and all the most necessary equipment. It is also worth noting that during the construction of the helipad all the standards prescribed by the Montenegrin Civil Aviation Agency were met, which are necessary for its registration and regular use.
Two years ago, the Porto Montenegro Directorate invested more than one million euros in the construction of a helipad in the eastern part of the Porto Montenegro complex, next to the large Tivat city park, as well as Drago Milović Primary School, Mladost High School and Knightsbridhge International School. As a result, the management company did not receive permission from the Civil Aviation Agency of Montenegro to put the site into operation, as the AHA considered that helicopter flights could be unsafe for local residents and children.
Now, a simpler and cheaper solution has been applied, thanks to which wealthy residents and guests of this elite tourist complex of Montenegro have a safe helipad in the immediate vicinity of their apartments or yachts. From here, helicopters will be able to fly only on routes within Montenegro, and most often they will be passenger flights to Tivat and Podgorica airports, panoramic sightseeing flights over Montenegro or flights to ski resorts located in the north of the country in Zabljak and Kolasin.
The Porto Montenegro heliport is open only during the daytime, and the parking and deployment of helicopters on it at night is prohibited. The helipad can accommodate a single or twin-engine helicopter with a maximum take-off weight of up to 4 tons, and the helicopter’s holding time on the ground during landing or disembarkation is limited to a maximum of 15 minutes.
