Getting it Done

Chopper Worx is a highly professional company providing airborne solutions for a variety of business scenarios. From aerial surveys, aerial mapping, thermal scanning, live line maintenance, helicopter slinging, insulator washing to many other needed.

The one service that may not come to mind is furniture removal.  This may seem an excessive and expensive furniture removal solution but for people living in high rise apartments these days, it is maybe the only solution, as was the case for a penthouse suite owner in the Michelangelo towers, the fifth tallest building in Africa and the tallest building in Sandton South Africa.

This operation needed a 25 meter long anti-twist cable, a vertical climb by the helicopter, a hover at 400ft above ground level, then positioning thehelicopter carefully to lower the furniture on the balcony of the suite. This all took 10 minutes but the planning and paperwork to get to this point took two weeks.

Not just any pilot is able to do this kind of operation and Mr. Deon Rossouw, the founder of Chopper Worxtook this job on personally.  Having some 5,000 hours of helicopter flying experience and 1,500 hours logged doing vertical reference lifting work, he was very capable of doing the very sophisticated and precise flying that was needed to bring this operation to a successful completion.

Together with all the relevant departments, the SA Civil Aviation Authority, Metropolitan Police, Fire and Rescue services, property owners and insurance for the furniture, the removal of the furniture went off superbly.

It was a great example of how professional Chopper Worx conducts its business and how good their relationship is with the government departments. It also shows the adaptability of their business and the many air borne scenarios they can find the solution for.  The visibility of the operation showed everyone the expertise of their pilots and the safety standards they needed to accommodate to lift furniture to a high rise building in the middle of a busy city.

Our expertise, provide confidence and a peace of mind to our clients in that they have chosen the right company for the job.
