- The Steyn City Ultimate Helistop features three independent helicopter parking pads, a lounge and viewing area, an upstairs office suite, and hangar storage for a number of helicopters.

Steyn City set a new standard in estate living when it was launched in 2015, by offering a living space with thought-through facilities and a range of living opportunities from luxury apartments, lock up and go cluster homes, and freehold houses. This latest lifestyle addition takes it to new heights in more ways than one.
A first for residential developments in South Africa, the Steyn City Ultimate Helistop opened this week in its own dedicated helicopter hub, featuring an upstairs office suite with a private meeting pod for guests to host a meeting on arrival or prior to departure, as well as washroom facilities to freshen up before a flight.
Added to this, the Steyn City Ultimate Helistop is capable of storing a number of helicopters in its sizeable hangar, which measures 650m². Its parking bay configuration makes it possible to load up to three helicopters at a time, ensuring that there is no delay between taxi or take-off, even if more than one flight has been scheduled.
It’s clear, the Steyn City Ultimate Helistop is no conventional helipad that may be found at other developments, luxury golf, or bush destinations.
The Steyn City Ultimate Helistop has a FATO (Final Approach and Take-Off area), plus three independent helicopter parking pads and is a seven-star facility boasting a full array of attentive services including a beautiful reception area, a lounge, and viewing area for convenience and comfort with a coffee station and the latest reads.

Flights can be organized for time-pressed business people who need to conduct regular site visits or simply to mark a special occasion such as an anniversary celebration mid-air with a bottle of bubbly, or a gifting idea for your golfing partner’s next big birthday before a round of golf at Steyn City’s Nicklaus Design championship golf course.
Plumari explains that Ultimate HELI was an obvious choice as a partner for this facility, due to the company’s experience, expertise, and reputation as a world-class helicopter and heliport operator in the aviation sector.
It’s a very exciting development and we look forward to providing first-class helicopter services to the residents of Steyn City. This will give the residents convenience of helicopter services to shuttle them to the Sandton CBD, airport transfers, scenic flights, direct transfers to other towns, cities, and lodges.

The helistop was designed in accordance with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) regulations, complying with all recognized international standards and the project also received the approval of the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SA CAA), ensuring full compliance with local requirements. However, maintenance of the helicopters will take place off-site.
The building’s magnificent design mirrors the blades of a helicopter rotor, points out architect Bryan Charters who worked closely with Ultimate HELI to ensure the building complied with international standards, and a touch of elegance has been added by leading interiors’ expert Stephen Falcke.
The Steyn City Ultimate Helistop is a welcome addition to the already progressive living space which boasts an 18-hole Nicklaus design championship golf course with an award-winning clubhouse, a world-class equestrian centre, an indoor aquatic centre, fully equipped gym, outdoor workout areas, resort pools, a flood-lit 45km promenade for walking and jogging any time of the day or night, and a 50km mountain bike trail.
