20 x AV-C310 green lights for the take-off and landing area, 4 x blue AV-420 approach lights and 20 x AV-60 red hazard lights were installed at the landing site.

The Prince Charles Hospital Helicopter Landing Site is located in Chermside, Queensland, and is a welcome addition to services at the cardio thoracic hospital.The main users of the helicopter landing site are Emergency Management Queensland, RACQ Care ight, Westpac Rescue and Energex Community Rescue helicopters.
