In FSX Acceleration, have successfully made several custom helipads at an addon airport (they show up on the map) but when I try to schedule a flight to them, the custom helipads do not appear in the Departure point drop down list.

Make sure each of your custom helipads has a "HELIPAD START" assigned in your addon airport's AFCAD.

For example, if you are using ADE to edit your airports and create your custom helipads ... you'll need to right-click on each of your helipads, and then select "Add Other Start" from the menu.  A dialog box will open. From this dialog box, you can choose the Start Type (in this case choose "Helipad"), and then give it a unique number and a designator (as applicable).

As a double-check, in the simulator, select "Go to Airport" from the sim menus at the top, and then select this airport.  Now click the "Choose Runway/Starting Position" dropdown ... and you should see the helipads listed and shown at the top of the list ... like this:

1 (helipad)
2 (helipad)
3 (helipad)
... followed by the runways
... and then the parking spots.

The helipads you see in this list should also be appearing in the Departure Point dropdown list.  If you don't see any helipads here for your addon airport, then that will mean they do not have "HELIPAD START" assigned to them in the AFCAD.
