It’s only once you’re up in the air above Cape Town where you can get that unique feeling of seeing the greater majesty our surroundings. Sport Helicopters offers scenic and adventure flips around the Mother City to get your pulse racing.

This locally owned company owns and operates a fleet of impeccably maintained helicopters ranging from two 3- passenger Robinson R44’s, three 4-passenger Jetrangers, a 6-passenger Longranger and a 9-passenger Bell Huey – the latter being literally a Huey, an authentic Vietnam War-era chopper which has flown two tours back in its day. This combat zone-friendly machine is now part of Sport’s fleet and does flips up the untamed West Coast.

Operating from the East Pier at the V&A Waterfront, it takes only a few seconds of rising from the helipad to see Table Bay, the CBD and surrounds, a truly unique sight.
