Cape Town By Helicopter

Sport Helicopters at the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town, have been going since 1990 and was founded by the late Mr. Ernest Macdonald along with his son Robert who today still owns and manages it.

Ernest Macdonald using single & multi engine aircraft, pioneered scenic flights for tourists around the Cape Peninsula and Cape Winelands during the mid 1980’s. Having started Sport Helicopters with a single Bell Jetranger, today the Company owns and operates two 4 seat Bell Jetrangers, a 6 seat Bell Longranger, and an authentic ex Vietnam Huey Helicopter.

With Cape Town being widely regarded as among the most beautiful places on earth, a helicopter ride around the peninsula presents the best possible vantage points for viewing its magnificent coastlines and awe-inspiring mountains.

There are various flight packages to choose from which collectively cover all of Cape Town’s scenic hotspots including Twelve Apostles, Clifton, Camps Bay, Constantia Nek, Llandudno as well as the "Republic" of Hout Bay. They also fly to Chapmans Peak, Noordhoek Beach, Cape Point, Fish Hoek, along Muizenberg, Constantia Valley, Groot Constantia ending with a low level flight around Table Mountain and the City Bowl. Flights around Robben Island are available on request.

Flight duration ranges from 20 minute packages going up to 1 Hour, keeping in mind that helicopters cover a lot of mileage in a short space of time. For those who really want a spectacular day out, they do also offer special tours to the Cape Winelands where you are wined and dined at World Class Venues.
