Transforming Regional Flying

About Us

At Air du Cap, we believe there is demand for a more affordable charter and scenic experiences operator.
We operate throughout the Western, Eastern, Northern Cape and beyond. Launching June, 2024.

Charter & Scenic

Our primary charter aircraft is the Beechcraft Baron 58, fitted with stitched leather seating, full air conditioning, high-speed device charging, Bose noise-canceling Bluetooth headphones, Wi-Fi, sophisticated IFR avionics and gleaming exterior. We operate from the Cape Winelands airport, and will be launching bases at Graaff-Reinet and Lanseria as we expand our fleet during 2024.

 

Then we have the Cessna 182 also available for charter, but used primarily for scenic experiences. From G&Ts in the middle of the desert, to a quick seafood feast in Saldanha, we offer more than just beautiful trips around Cape Point.

And whilst the ‘Out of Africa’ romance of a single prop airplane flying over Africa does hark back to a bygone era, you can be sure the levels of safety and comfort are very much up to date in our Cessna 182 – equipped with modern avionics, portable air conditioning and Melvill & Moon interior.

 

On-board catering and refreshments come as standard, with transfers to and from the airfield also available.

We operate on very short notice, so get in touch the next time you’re dreading that 6+ hour drive surrounded by trucks and dangerous drivers overtaking at 180km/h in the opposite direction.

Maybe now you can do just two nights at that bush lodge or Perfect Hideaways property that was too far to justify the drive?

Take back your time – fly Air du Cap.

It Turns Out You CAN Fly Private

Just because you’re paying substantially less than traditional charters, doesn't mean your comfort and safety should be compromised.

As part of the du Cap Collection, Air du Cap understands service and comfort. After all, the journey should be just as special as the destination.

Air du Cap operates from the Cape Winelands airport, just off the N1 outside Stellenbosch. We have a departure lounge, with snacks and refreshments, leading directly to your aircraft, with charter flights enjoying pre-start air conditioning.

On-board catering, refreshments, and transfers to and from the airfield departure lounge are available as standard.

National Charters - Take Back Your Time

National charters for tourists and business travelers.

Western Cape

The Western Cape is a region of exceptional natural beauty and vibrant culture - now more accessible than ever before. While you used to avoid traveling far due to limited time, two nights in St. Francis doesn’t sound like a bad idea with a mere 01h45 flying time.. Whether it’s up the West Coast, or north towards Beaufort West and Graaff-Reinet, there are always well maintained airfields and airstrips available. So you don’t have to fly commercial to a big airport and then hire a car to continue the trek. The days of 10-hour drives are behind us.

Eastern Cape

From Shamwari and Addo towards the coast, to Mount Camdeboo in the North, the private game reserve offerings in the Eastern Cape are beyond exceptional. Graaff-Reinet has also become a significant strategic hub, connecting Johannesburg (02h20) and the Cape Winelands (01h45).

Northern Cape

The Northern Cape is a region of rugged natural beauty and fascinating geological formations, including the iconic Augrabies Falls and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. The biggest problem is limited commercial transport to these and other places. With car drives of 10 hours being quite common, Visits to these parts become bucket list items, when they should be part of growing up in this beautiful part of the world. Whilst we can easily get you to the Augrabies Falls in 01h50, the panoramic views of these majestic landscapes below, start the moment you takeoff.

Africa (coming soon)

We plan to expand our services to other African destinations in the near future, allowing our clients to experience the incredible natural beauty and cultural richness of East and Southern Africa. From the world-renowned wildlife reserves of the Serengeti and Maasai Mara to the breathtaking landscapes of Victoria Falls and Kruger National Park, our personalized itineraries and exceptional customer service will ensure that you have an unforgettable journey through these stunning regions. Whether you're looking to embark on a wildlife safari, explore cultural sites, or relax on a tropical beach, we will provide you with a unique and luxurious travel experience.

Experiences

Air du Cap offers boutique charter and bespoke experiences, with attention to detail and safety. G&Ts in the desert, whale spotting in Hermanus, or engagement flights over beaches with ‘will you marry me’ pre-written in the sand beneath - there is no limit to what we can do for you.

Pint of prawns, anyone? Depart Cape Winelands’ airport in the morning and return in the afternoon after taking in a full lunch at the famous Deck or Enrico’s around the corner in Keurbooms.
