About Us - Cape Town Helicopter Flight South Africa
About us and procedures
Bookings and particulars
Helicopter flights are very dependent on the weather. Our specified routes and flight times are purely indicative and may vary daily depending on the weather or fly zones. Forest fires are not uncommon in the Cape and can incur route changes. Sightseeing flights can be delayed due to high winds, rain or fog. When it comes to our flight operations, safety is the number one priority. Each helicopter can only carry a certain weight and we will therefore require your approximate body weight in advance. We will send you your flight times with our booking confirmation. You should be at the heliport approximately one hour before the flight departs.
After a warm welcome you will be handed your lifejackets and will receive important safety regulations from our personnel. The captain will then introduce himself and your adventure can begin. The helicopter is checked again before departure and our hostesses will accompany you to the helicopter. Another security check is performed and every passenger will be strapped into his safety belt. The captain starts the engine and the rotor blades slowly begin to rotate.
With a jerk, the chopper lifts off into the air, and the first thing you will see is our Majesty - Table Mountain, Lion's Head, Signal Hill and the Twelve Apostles mountain range. Towards the west coast, you can admire Robben Island and the long stretches of "Bloubergstrand" beach. Depending on the flight booked, the helicopter will fly you over wonderful regions and breath-taking scenery. You will discover beautiful beaches, great coastal landscapes, wine regions and magnificent mountain scenery from lofty heights.
