KL Sky Tour by Cempaka Helicopter

I was over at the Titiwangsa Helipad at the Titiwangsa Lake Gardens for a chance to get aboard a helicopter. I think I did get on a helicopter before as a child but I barely remembered the experience and so it was definitely one thing I wanted to do and in my bucket list…

And well, now almost everyone can fly in a helicopter!!!

Cempaka Helicopter Corporation Sdn Bhd’s  main office is located in Peninsular Malaysia at the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, Subang. They also have operations in Langkawi and Lake Titiwangsa KL and is looking to opening soon in Kuala Terengganu, Penang and Malacca.

Cempaka Helicopter provides a wide range of services including tours, corporate and VIP transfers and private helicopter charters.

It sure was thrilling to get on my helicopter ride in a Robinson R66 Turbine. This helicopter carries 4 passengers and runs on a Rolls Royce RR300 Turbine at a cruise speed of 125kn(144mph,231km/h).

The other helicopter would be the Robinson R44 which is slightly smaller and can carry 3 passengers and is powered by the Lycoming IO-540 six cylinder engine at a cruise speed of 110 kn (130 mph,200 km/h).

The 3 helicopters present at the bank of the Titiwangsa lake, were certainly an amazing sight to behold and all ready to bring you on that helicopter ride you have only dreamt of all these while….  and yes, they provide rides to individuals, tourists, locals and even corporations.

So if you want to enjoy view from the top of the city, get on the KL Sky Tour or if you want to travel somewhere like Penang, Langkawi, Terengganu, Pulau Redang, Pulau Tioman, or even give the woman you admire a proposal she will never forget, you can book a tailor made helicopter trip/ride.
