Passengers were moving from the terminal building to the F27 past the parked helicopter. The helicopter crew were ready to start and taxi when possible. The helicopter pilot observed some of the passengers stop outside the terminal building to take some photographs so he elected to start and taxi away from the area. He felt that no danger was created. Advice from the Civil Aviation Authority indicates that the aircraft operator is responsible for the safety of its passengers between the terminal building and the aircraft and that they are not in a public area when on the tarmac.
