The Huey

Those with an appetite for adventure should take full advantage of the Huey helicopter, a simulated combat mission in Cape Town, South Africa. The military helicopter Series Bell UH-1 was used in the 60s during the Vietnam War, not only for passenger and transport carriage, but also as attack helicopters. The Huey takes centre stage in many Hollywood action movies and is often booked by TV teams as it is possible to fly with open doors! Many lovers of aviation sports call the helicopter a "flying legend” - a "dream” - which can more than just fly!

Adventure Helicopter Flights

Our adventure flight departs from the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Upon arrival at our airport you will be greeted warmly by our staff and all safety rules will be explained to you.  You will receive your lifejackets and your weight will be determined so that we can calculate the flight weight. The pilot will introduce himself to you and our hostesses will accompany you to the helicopter. You will then be allocated to your seats, and all seat belts will be fastened. The pilot then does his final few checks of the helicopter and the engine is started. The engine roars, the rotor blades thunder and with a brief jerk we rise vertically, immediately gazing upon Table Mountain and its adjacent peaks. With a sharp left turn we fly directly towards Table Bay, where Robben Island can be seen in the distance.
On this flight we have a duty to fulfil - a Combat Mission. We fly to the west coast of Cape Town and conquer the long Bloubergstrand at low altitude. With thunderous noise we engage the butter mountain and attempt a landing, which due to a sandstorm is quickly aborted. With sharp left and right turns we will decamp the site, revealing just what capabilities this military helicopter has. Once our Combat Mission is complete, we fly off back to Blouberg and can watch the surfers from high above. Robben Island is dead ahead and with a sharp turn we head for Cape Town and the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront once again.
At the landing site you will be served a glass of champagne from our flight attendants.

We are certain that your flying experience with The Huey Helicopter will be one that is remembered for the rest of your life. Come and fulfil your dream with us!
