Interested in a helicopter trip?
It’s a once in a lifetime experience, flying around one of the world’s most beautiful cities, with sights like Table Mountain, the V&A Waterfront, Robben Island, and Cape Point Nature Reserve to see!
While it might not be the usual mode of transport around the Mother City and its surroundings, it comes with its own set of unique benefits for those who decide to charter a ride.
But if you are struggling to convince someone else to join you in the cabin, here are 5 reasons to book a helicopter flight in Cape Town.
We love the Red Sightseeing Bus, which starts its journey from the Two Oceans Aquarium, but a problem a bus can’t overcome is the Mother City’s traffic. Cape Town is South Africa’s most congested city. This means you can easily land up crawling between attractions.
This isn’t a problem for us though, as where we’re going, we don’t need roads!
It’s a Thrill
Let us not gloss over the fact that riding in a helicopter is something that’s totally exhilarating. This thrill factor is ramped up to the maximum on our Huey flights with some packages including simulated military evasive manoeuvres! Also, this is the only army helicopter in the world licensed to do this flight. Not to mention the iconic sound of Huey blades chopping at the wind, it’s literally the sound of the cavalry coming.
Let’s just say, it’s very exciting.
Small Tour Group
There’s nothing more annoying than being stuck with a large tour group. It’s almost a guarantee that one of the members of your posse is bound to demand all the attention. This simply isn’t the case when charting a helicopter.
This is especially great when taking a trip to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Robben Island. You might even learn that the name is Dutch for Seal Island, which is just one of the many facts our pilots know.
Views, Views, Views
It’s just amazing, the scenes you’ll see from the cabin as you fly about the Mother City and its surroundings. In season you might be fortunate enough to see some of the Cape’s legendary visitors and residents – various schools of whales and dolphin.
Let’s not forget that you can also take in the awesome vistas of the 7th wonder of the world, Table Mountain, the simply amazing views of the 12 apostles mountain range, ending with the cherry on top, Cape Point, where the two mighty oceans meet. Not to mention that on some LEGENDARY Huey charters you’ll be skimming the waves along the Blouberg coast.
There’s honestly no better way to experience that morning sea spray and fresh sea breeze than from the open door of a Huey.
It’s just a fact. Once you’ve climbed out of the cabin onto the landing pad, with the blades kicking up gusts of wind, there’s no possible way you’ll forget this experience.
Also, if you feel like there is a certain question you want to pop, you can charter one of our helicopters to a bespoke wine farm dinner or wine tasting destination, just to ramp up that wow factor.
If you’re looking for an adventure that is non-stop, thrilling, bespoke, scenic, and bound to be spoken about for years to come, then you should book a chartered helicopter flight.
And if you’re looking for another reason to take a helicopter flight, some of our chartered flights are cheaper than a night at the One&Only Cape Town. So, a bargain! Also, you should book that room – as you only live once.
