HenleyAir.tv provides a multi-cam view of our helicopter activities on the Henley Air helipads (WestCam and NorthCam) as well as what is going on inside our main hangar (HangarCam) and our Aircraft Maintenance Operation hangar (AMOCam) at Rand Airport (FAGM).

 

Cameras are operational 24 hours daily South African Standard Time (SAST) and images refresh automatically every 60 seconds.

 

Button_History

 

Our webcams, often referred to as the HenleyCams, were installed in 2006 and have been providing daily views of helicopter activities from Rand Airport (FAGM) for over 17 years.

 

The concept of providing a live feed was undertaken by a student of ours who so enjoyed their PPL experience with us, that they wanted to continue watching what was happening on our helipads each and every day even when they themselves were not flying.

 

The HenleyCams have become immensely popular with all who pass through our doors that we even get comments from ex-students and pilots who are now living and working in the helicopter industry in other parts of the world. They say the HenleyCams offer them a fantastic opportunity to be reminded of their training days and just to catch up with what is going on at Henley Air.

 

In addition, the HenleyCams provide an important safety feature in that adverse weather conditions can be seen live at any given time aiding in better flight planning for our staff and pilots.

WestCam was the very first camera installed. The initial design used a small USB webcam connected to a dedicated Windows PC running 24/7.

 

WestCam points West from Hangar 6 towards the Silver Ball in the distance. This view covers our most active helipads from where training and charter flights launch.

NorthCam was the second camera installed and points North-West towards the Linksfield Ridge. This view covers the Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) helipads in front of Hangar 7, as well as the maintenance helipads in front of Hangar 8.

HangarCam was the third camera installed and the view is from a location in the North-West corner of Hangar 6. From HangarCam you are able to see a multitude of helicopter types ranging from the smallest Robinson R22’s to the biggest Bell 222ut’s and 230's.

AMOCam (Aircraft Maintenance Operation) is the fourth and newest camera installed and the view is from a location in the South-West corner of Hangar 7. From AMOCam you are able to see work being done on a multitude of helicopter types ranging from the smallest Robinson R22’s to the biggest Bell 222ut’s and 230's.

 

We trust you will continue to enjoy the views from our webcams, especially now directly on your mobile device.
