I cannot praise the heli pilot, Mauritz, highly enough for his professionalism, calmness and courtesy during a breathtaking flight over Cape Town. He immediately put us at ease with his relaxed demeanour and invited us to join in with his commentary, asking questions and making observations; it enabled us to express our wonder and excitement during the flight. He was... More

It was the complete opposite of the first trip. Our pilot, Fraser, was fabulous and very informative as well as entertaining. I got great views of our beautiful city plus... More

Being horribly afraid of flying I was very apprehensive about our flight, however our pilot Mauritz was wonderful! His calm confident approach made me feel safe. Mauritz was very informative and not only explained the view and surroundings but also how the helicopter worked which gave me even more confidence. After flying with Mauritz I have a new love of...
