Helicopter Charter & Training

Our charter and flight school has been in operation since 1988. The chief flight instructor, John Huddlestone, has been flying for nearly 40 years and started Helicopter Charter & Training after flying around the world and owning a flight school in Johannesburg. Port Elizabeth is most certainly South Africa’s best kept secret. With the amazing weather, beautiful beaches and friendly people it is without a doubt the place best place to fly!

We are located within controlled airspace which gives students the experience necessary to build the confidence needed to fly anywhere in the world. Our general flying area is located about 15 minutes away which enables us to make the most of the training at Uitenhage Airfield. With 4 different grass runways, tar thresholds, slopes and confined areas with which to train; you’ll build the confidence and skills needed to earn your wings.

In the unlikely event that we have limited visibility here in Port Elizabeth, we simply train on the threshold of one of the runways here that is not in use. There is rarely a day that we’re grounded. The tower and your flight instructors will work to ensure you get the flight time you need!

As a charter company we pride ourselves in providing a great service with competitive rates. Whether it’s game work, photography or a special occasion, we will do our best to meet your expectation of whatever service you require – business or pleasure!
