Hi,

in the general aviation profile, heliports (from .aip waypoint files) are shown which clutters the map for all GA pilots relying on wings.

Unless there are many helicopter pilots using LK8000, I vote for hiding heliport waypoints also in the GA profile.

In the mean, I found a way to remove heliports from aip files using XmlStarlet:

xml.exe ed -P -d OPENAIP/WAYPOINTS/AIRPORT[@TYPE='HELI_CIVIL'] foo.aip > foo_no_heliciv.aip
xml.exe ed -P -d OPENAIP/WAYPOINTS/AIRPORT[@TYPE='HELI_MIL'] foo_no_heliciv.aip > foo_no_heli.aip

Didn't investigate whether XmlStarlet supports expressions/wildcards and didn't want to pipe, therefore the two steps.

Nevertheless I think suppressing heliports in GA mode should be considered in LK8000. There could be an additional aircraft category, but I doubt there will be many helicopter pilots using LK8000.
