What is not special about flying in a helicopter?

Nothing, Nada, Méiyǒu shé me – everything about this experience is something special that will be savored, remembered and re-lived over and over again. Whether it’s private charter flights or scenic flights, the adventure will leave you breathless. South Africa has the most helicopters in Sub-Saharan Africa, but have you ever flown in one? Here are the two top reasons why helicopter flights make great 40th, 50th and 60th birthday gifts, as well as a hyper-romantic engagement idea.

1.   Instagram-worthy moments

There is no doubt that pretty much everything posted on Instagram is meant to make others jealous. Posting birthday pictures of your stylish picnic on top of a plateau with a panoramic view of the city, ocean, stadium and the Valley of a Thousand Hills, will have your followers green with envy. There will be numerous, once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunities for you to capture, share and treasure – from sunset aerial shots of you with your headset on, to breaching whales…the possibilities are endless.

2.   A thrill seeker’s delight

Relatively few people have had the opportunity of experiencing helicopter flights. Flying in a helicopter makes you feel like a celebrity, or James Bond. It has an exotic and enticing aura. It is just you and a glass bubble hovering above the city, as much a part of the southern skies as the birds sharing it with you. A birthday helicopter ride is a thrilling yet totally safe experience.
