Cayman Islands: Court rules against helipad (With Video)

The Chief Justice has ruled that the Civil Aviation Authority failed to comply with international regulations when it approved the use of a helipad on North Church Street. The helipad is being used by Cayman Islands Helicopters for commercial helicopter tours.

But Axis, the company which owns a neighboring building, challenged the decision to grant the permit. That building houses business offices on the first three floors and a residential apartment on the fourth.

Axis argued the grant of the certificate was unreasonable on the grounds of safety and nuisance.
