what some of our clients say...

“ On the 16th of June 2018 I decided to propose to the love of my life. My sister suggested I use HPTC for the helicopter ride. It was by far the best experience we’ve had. Our pilot, Mark, took us to a beautiful and remote area on the beach just to the east of the city.
He picked the perfect spot and the setting for my proposal was breathtaking. We were dropped off where we got to spend some time alone and take in the beautiful surroundings. HPTC organised everything, the flowers, the champagne, it was all perfect.
On our way back, after the engagement, we were greeted with the bright city lights and a magnificent sunset. It was one very special day and the amazing team at HPTC made sure it was a day we will never forget." Thank you HPTC.
