Founded in 2004, Chopper Worx is a South African helicopter air services company, appropriately licensed by the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) and offering a diverse range of specialised services primarily in the powerline industry, from short term flight to long term contracts including aerial cargo slinging (containers and non-containerized items), aerial survey and LiDAR services, vertical reference flying and specialized aerial services utilized in the optimization of overhead powerline and telecommunication networks.

Chopper Worx provides cost effective helicopter support to the mining industry in a range of services.
We provide services for special operations such as paramilitary - fast roping of SWOT teams, game work, anti-poaching and more.
Power line surveys are best performed by helicopter. With our multi tasking helicopter platform, we carry out power line patrols.
More and more power lines are built in inaccessible terrain and this necessitates helicopter assistance during construction.
