Adding a unique areal perspective to your Battlefields experience
15 January 2019 – 15 March 2019
Helivate Helicopter Services was established in 2011 in response to the ever-increasing helicopter charter, training, and hire market within Southern Africa. With an operational base in Krugersdorp, they are one of the leading providers of business helicopter flights and private helicopter charter in South Africa. The Helivate Team has a keen interest in South Africa’s military history, and are proud to partner with the Rattray family and Fugitives’ Drift Lodge to enhance guests’ battlefields experiences. Adding an aerial perspective of the battlefields and of the beautiful surrounding area is a fantastic addition to a battlefields visit.
Meet the Pilot: Byron Walters
Byron was born in Johannesburg, where he has lived his whole life. He has been flying helicopters since he was eighteen years old and in his final year of school. He has now logged over one thousand flight hours, flying various helicopters all over South Africa and into neighbouring countries. Some of the work that he has done inclueds vehicle tracking and recovert, security flying, film making, VIP tours, and charter flights. When he is not flying helicopters, he runs a small business selling and operating drones professionally in the film industry. He is also a keen runner and cyclist!
We are very excited to have Byron on our team at Fugitives’ Drift for the next few months; his Battlefields by Air tours are certainly something to experience.
