        • (B) the heliport operator intends to submit to the Minister a request that a zoning regulation be made under the Aeronautics Act,

      • (ii) the heliport geometric centre,

      • (iii) the FATO coordinates,

      • (v) the heliport magnetic variation, and

      • (vi) where installed, the electronic navigation aids; and

    • (b) information in respect of

      • (i) the heliport type,

      • (ii) the dimensions, slope and surface type of all TLOFs,

      • (iii) the length, width, slope, category, surface type and designation number of all FATOs,

        • (B) rejected take-off distance available, and

        • (C) landing distance available.

  • (2) The operator of a heliport shall ensure that a heliport geometric centre is redetermined and recorded in the manual if the physical characteristics of the heliport change because

    • (a) an existing FATO is closed;

    • (b) the boundaries of an existing FATO are altered; or

    • (c) a new FATO is constructed.
