If you’ve been there and done that and are looking for a thrill to top all the rest, then the sky’s the limit. Sky Adventures offers a variety of aviation experiences to both the corporate and private sectors.
Based in Durban, but operating throughout South Africa, Sky Adventures has many breath-taking aviation rides. These include; hot air balloon flights, microlight flights, helicopter flights, gyro copter flights, tandem hang gliding and tandem skydiving. In addition we offer both private and executive air charters and specialised packages for proposals and weddings.
For example, we recently did a 20 person helicopter flight with picnic on a remote mountain for a corporate client, or how about a flight into Phinda Game Reserve for lunch? We are totally flexible and will try and find a package to suit you.
Take off on a Microlight flight into the sky with the wind in your face, one of the purest types of flying. Inland and coastal flights are available. Such a fun and exciting experience
The gyro-copter is a “James Bond” style two-seater type aircraft, you and the pilot seated in tandem. Your highly experienced pilot will talk to you through the radio you and, depending on your level of adventure, you can either chose a relaxing calm flight or you can request that the pilot demonstrates to you just what a remarkable machine it is. Whether you want to have a local scenic flight or a longer trip to the coast, either way, you will be thrilled.
Hot Air Ballooning
Hot air ballooning is the oldest form of manned flight. Experience the awesome thrill and peaceful serenity of hot air ballooning. Today the hot air balloon is a magical slow moving platform from which to view the world. Hot air balloon flights are offered from various locations around the country.
You will meet at the hot air balloon launch site approximately 30 minutes before sunrise, your pilot will then give you a safety briefing. Once the hot air balloon is heated and you are in the balloons’ basket you will enjoy a flight of around an hour. After helping to pack the hot air balloon, and a champagne toast, you will return to a location close to take off point for an alfresco breakfast.
So ….. ready to choose your flight?
- Fly low level over a game park and spot giraffe and rhino.
- You could fly inland along base of the majestic Drakensberg Mountains.
Tandem Sky Diving
After a 20 minute briefing on the tandem skydive, you will accompany a qualified Tandem Master (TM) to 8000 feet above the ground. Then, using tandem skydiving equipment designed to carry you both, exit the aircraft and experience about 30 seconds of exhilarating and extraordinary free-fall tandem skydiving, after which the Tandem Master will deploy the canopy and do the canopy checks. You can then assist the Tandem Master in flying and landing the canopy, or leave it all to him and just enjoy the skydiving experience. The tandem skydive flight will last 5 – 7 minutes.
