Heliquip was incorporated in the Republic of South Africa on the 5th April 1967 as Heliquip (Proprietary) Limited, as a helicopter consultancy and helicopter sales company.
Initially it operated one Hughes 269B helicopter under the operating licenses of Transair (Pty.) Ltd. During 1972 it negotiated the establishment of the heliport at Rand Airport on a vacant island behind the terminal building and in the same year signed agreements with OFEMA in Paris to represent the French helicopter manufacturer, SNIAS which became the Aerospatiale Helicopter Division and today Eurocopter. Heliquip then built its first hangar on the heliport.
