Is there perhaps anymore information?

You can find the angles of the triangle, but I'm not sure if you can find the side lengths.

You will have to have the height of the helicopter to solve this....but you didnt supply that info in your post !

if your answer 5880 m is correct, then the helicopter is approx 5897 m high ? Yes?
