Helipad construction begins
Construction of a new helipad is underway next to the SAMC warehouse. The larger, stronger helipad is needed to accommodate the Army’s new HH-60 medevac chopper and will also provide a better space for Wiregrass Life Flight to land when transporting patients to SAMC. The new helipad is approximately 100 yards west of the existing helipad. Work is expected to be completed in March.
