The Vespucci Helipad is a helipad in Grand Theft Auto V. It is located on Shank Street in Puerto Del Sol, Vespucci. It is a purchasable Property.


The Helipad is used as a place of business by the Los Santos branch of Higgins Helitours as evidenced by a company sign at the entrance to the helipad and their name on the hangar buildings. The helipad has a floating dock jetty on the western side connected to the Puerto Del Sol Marina. Around the western side are several uncontrollable boat cranes. On the southern side, a runoff ramp for boat trailers to disconnect boats is also found between two jetties. A Dock Trailer frequently spawns on the southern-west edge of the helipad.

Grand Theft Auto V

The helipad will serve the same function as a garage when purchased; any helicopter landed and stored on the helipad can be selected to spawn later on.

Only Franklin and Michael are able to purchase it, as Trevor has his own helipad at Sandy Shores Airfield. It costs $419,850 to purchase the helipad. Helicopters purchased from websites will spawn at the helipad and if the player lands a stolen helicopter it will also continue to be available here. Michael's helicopters are stored at helipad 1, while Franklin's are stored at helipad 2.

In the original version of the game, after the The San Andreas Flight School Update (update 1.16), players will have access to the helipad available for free, as the Swift will be available for them from the beginning of the game.

Grand Theft Auto Online

The property cannot be purchased in GTA Online, but still serves as a location for helicopters to spawn. As well as the occasionally-landing Frogger, several other vehicles can spawn on the helipad, that do not spawn here in GTA V. These will be unlocked as the player progresses through Ranks:

Alongside pre-spawning helicopters, helicopters requested through Pegasus Lifestyle Management may be delivered here if the player is nearby. The Hydra can also spawn here as of the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2.

In the enhanced version, Personal Aircraft may spawn here if requested through the Interaction Menu.
