On Thursday afternoon I joined a group of travel industry professionals for a helicopter flip over Cape Town, some networking and a whole lot of generously served snacks, drinks and entertainment.
Our hosts were NAC Makana Aviation and Signature Life Hotels and when the invitation arrived in my mailbox a few weeks back, it took me about 5 seconds to process the idea of a “helicopter flip” and another 10 to say ‘Yes Please’. What a treat for a sky lover. Especially considering that I had only flown in a helicopter twice before; once over the Goldfields Mines in the troubled ’90’s and another time rather recently, over the magnificent Victoria Falls. It was time to get my helicopter on.
The other reason for my great enthusiasm was that the two companies hosting us are both fabulous and highly respected. Signature Life for their wonderful selection of properties around the country, and NAC Makana for being THE place to book your helicopter flights, be it scenic or corporate.
These are some of the photographs that I took whilst I was up in the air. It was truly wonderful. Thank you both for the wonderful much appreciated opportunity!
