Kriek Helicopters (Pty) Ltd was formed as a result of a great need for helicopter support in central South Africa. Dr. Johan Kriek started with importation of wildlife from Africa during 1982 and did the first Malawi operation during 1986. He used helicopters since the launch of Norhern Cape Game Darting Services during 1986 and used Hughes 300's, Robinson R22's, Robinson R44's, Eurocopter Ecureuil's, Bell 47's and Bell Jetranger 206's for his game darting operations. After a few year we were struggling to get helicopters to central South Africa when we needed them and we could no longer provide a reliable service without owning a helicopter.
We purchased a brand new Robinson R22 Beta II & R44 Raven II air conditioned helicopter and completed our private licenses, commercial licenses and obtained an operators certificate with an air service license. During emergencies, game farmers, professional hunters, mining companies and other clients can have the peace of mind of knowing that a reliable helicopter service is always available.
