English Pilot

Fly the New Airbus

The Airbus makes use of a Fenestron enclosed tail rotor with unevenly spaced blades that break the frequency to allow for lower levels of noise output. Operating below 60 decibels, it is one of the few machines allowed to operate in sensitive areas. Take flight in one of the lightest, quietest helicopters to ever take to the skies in South African Tourism.

Best Pictures

For the best pictures we recommend that you wear darker coloured clothing as whites reflect off the inside of the windows and can spoil that epic shot. We do offer In Flight Video packages where we record you and your flight, including audio, and put it on a USB for you. Note that not all aircraft has this system available so please requests this on check in.


All flights are weather dependent. Should the conditions not be ideal for flying we will try to reschedule to the next best available flight window. Note that the temperature in the sky is exactly the same as on the ground in case you are wondering what to wear.
