Huey Combat Missions
Experience the ultimate rush of an Adventure Flight through the Combat Zone on a genuine Vietnam Huey helicopter along the shores of the untamed West Coast…
Take a step back in time with our iconic Huey, a true gem amongst our large Cape Town Helicopter fleet.
The Bell UH-1 Iroquois (nicknamed Huey) is a military helicopter powered by a single turboshaft engine, with two-bladed main and tail rotors.
The Huey was developed by Bell Helicopter to meet the United States Army’s requirement for a medical evacuation and utility helicopter back in 1952. The Huey was the first turbine-powered helicopter to enter production for the United States military. The first combat operation of the Huey was in the service of the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War.
This Cape Town helicopter experience is an absolute must for all aviation enthusiasts.
