Base 4 Aviation has a long and successful history of offshore operations dating back to 2001 when we provided offshore vessel support for diamond mining operations in Namibia. Since then, our operations have included offshore work in South Africa, Mozambique, Madagascar and the Antarctic. Our services include passenger and cargo transportation, search-and-rescue (SAR), salvage, aerial construction, ocean research, ship supply and casualty evacuation.


Our Mission is to provide worldwide offshore helicopter services that are unsurpassed in safety and customer satisfaction. Base 4 Aviation not only offers the highest quality service in offshore operations, we also offer VIP scenic flights and tailor made packages for special occasions such as whale watching in Hermanus, Shark Cage Diving in Gaansbaai and family holidays, as well as transfers to and from airports. In addition to leisure transportation, our helicopters are also used for transportation to sporting events, aerial photography and professional charter services such as geological, mining and power line surveys that can only be conducted from an aerial flight.

If you are looking for a unique and exciting way to explore and discover the world then look no further than Base 4 Aviation. The limits of the helicopter are governed by the limits of your imagination. If you have a destination in mind Base 4 Aviation will make it happen.
