Main use is for photography as I do a lot of aircraft, marine and rail photography so nice to know what is coming.

Rous Island Container Heli Pad

Post by Bermejo »

There is a heli pad / operations at Rous Island behind the Fremantle Ports Container Terminal.

Usually the yellow surf life saving choppers in and out of there but I see some business choppers in there as well.

Does anyone know if there is a call up or approach freq for this location or any list of freq's specific to this site that can be monitored for inbound arrivals.
Have got some pictures there in the past as they flare in for landing but if you don't hear them coming, they can take you by surprise.

Cheers

Hey Bermejo,

The helipad in fremantle is firmly outside controlled airspace - so there is no requirement for them to contact Perth approach before depart or arrive. The area frequency is Perth Centre - 135.25, while they are not required to transmit on that frequency they may occasionally ask for traffic information as that is quite a busy corridor.

Some of they may show up on apps like Flight Radar 24 or Flightaware, however I know some of the companies have asked for their information not to be shown on those sites - however they are normally visible on ADSBexchange.

Hope that helps.

Just a correction - Perth Centre is on 135.250 MHz (135.550 is REX Airlines at Perth A/P).
