Jo’burg is such a city of contrasts. It’s got a really intense core, circled by an urban jungle and then beautiful open countryside surrounding that. I was lucky enough to experience just how true this recently on a heliflip from the Lanseria Airport with Execujet.
I was attending a function for the launch of Execujet’s new Bell 230 Helicopter and was lucky enough to have my business card drawn from a vase full of them as one of five people to get to experience this luxury helicopter. The plush leather seats and USB chargers made the journey that much more special, while the smooth take off and landing gave me a completely different idea into what travel by ‘copter is all about!
We took a short spin over the Hartbeespoort Dam and Pecanwood Estate, while our pilot gave us more details on the heli and the distances it can fly. Here are some photos from my trip up in the air!
