Welcome to Vanguard Helipad

The Vanguard Helipad offers the most efficient route into Central London and the City.

Situated on the Isle of Dogs, it is the only HLS to the East of Central London and the closest to Canary Wharf and the City of London. The helipad is a short drive from the ExCel Centre, the O2 Arena and the Olympic Park. The Vanguard Helipad was opened in 1980 and has been used for thousands of take-off and landings over the last thirty years.

Vanguard is a family owned business that has been trading since 1964 with an impeccable record. Over the years Vanguard has become synonymous with a high level of customer service and the Vanguard Helipad is no exception. Our helipad team are all particularly friendly and would count most of our more regular customers as their friends. Secure car parking is available on site or, if required, we can source a local taxi/limousine. We also provide clients with a comfortable waiting room offering a selection of complementary hot and cold refreshments.

The hls service is restricted to certain types of helicopter due to the surrounding residential area. If you would like to make use of the facility please view our Operating times & Procedure page to ensure you meet the requirements set by the UK caa.

If you have any questions regarding any of the services we offer, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
