You may have seen the Chinook helicopter out at KLHM in the last month. Helimax was approved to use our ramp for testing. They are trying to get a proprietary internal water tank tested and FAA approved. They use a City of Lincoln water hydrant meter to fill the tank. As the area they were using is unavailable to them now since the airport is starting construction on the new above ground fuel tanks, they’re now be utilizing the West side of the field on the old runway near the only fire hydrant water source out there.
Please use caution if you have to access that area during helicopter operations.
