About Sport Helicopters
Sport Helicopters is highly rated with an average 5-star rating and over 700 reviews on TripAdvisor. It is the preferred helicopter service by top hotels in Cape Town and is renowned for conducting the most helicopter flights from the V&A Waterfront each year.
Flying around Cape Town, one of the world’s most beautiful cities, with breathtaking sights such as Table Mountain, the V&A Waterfront, Robben Island, and Cape Point Nature Reserve is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Although chartering a helicopter ride may not be a conventional mode of transportation in the “Mother City” and its surroundings, it offers a unique set of benefits.
Our friendly pilots would be delighted to share information on the latest attractions, hidden gems, and events in and around Cape Town. Don’t hesitate to ask questions while you are soaring through the sky.

The only Huey in the world licensed to carry passengers
The South African Civil Aviation Authority certified it for commercial use in April 2007, and we have operated it in various roles since then.
The Huey is mostly used for tourist flying, and has been flown in approximately 15 feature movies and various television series since then.
Our Huey is kept in pristine operational condition and we invite you to come and experience the thrill of flying in a truly iconic ex-Vietnam veteran.
