I see stuff like this all the time. Makes me laugh. I think as you see the local become more competitive you'll see stuff like this disappear.
Google Maps for the Rich and Famous – Heliport Transit Options
In between sips of champagne from this diamond encrusted glass, I've grown a bit hungry for some pizza. While performing some internet sleuthing, I (and by I, I'm obviously referring to my minions) have uncovered a hidden gem of helicopteraire wisdom.

@Julie - welcome to the club! Although you'd probably prefer to have not joined... @David - thanks for stopping by. As the leading Google helicopter expert, feel free to include me in next year's local search ranking factors panel.

That heliport is on top of Sutter Roseville Hospital but since it's not open to the public ...
Whew, what a relief. Nothing like dusting off the chopper to go get a $12 thin crust pizza. Shame on all those people bad mouthing the health care system, they provide health care to 7% of the population and helipads to .00001% of the population.
