mining and exploration services
With the steady increase in drilling, mining, surveying and mapping throughout increasingly inaccessible regions of Africa, the versatility and unique capabilities of the helicopter has made it indispensable in this industry.

course is a one-on-one programme. Starting with the basics at ab-initio level and continuing through to the advanced flying courses and helicopter ratings.
One of BAC’s specialist capabilities is Aerial Filming and Photography. Our experienced pilots maximize the unique capabilities of a helicopter to deliver highly effective results in both still aerial photography and filming.
Aerial Filming of an increasing variety of endurance races and sporting events across the country, including long distance running, paddling, mountain biking and motor-biking has put BAC at the forefront of this growing market.
