Helicopter Safety

Did you know that fear of heights, also known as acrophobia, is the fifth top phobia in the United States? According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 10% of Americans suffer from acrophobia. Because of this, many people may be afraid to take a helicopter tour. What you may not know is that flying with Air Maui is one of the safest things that you can do on Maui!

With over 25 years of experience and a perfect safety record, they use state of the art helicopters, employ the best pilots (many of whom are military trained), and have the best mechanics who are FAA-certified and factory-trained.

That makes an Air Maui helicopter tour statistically safer than:

  • your flight to Maui on an airplane
  • a downhill biking tour of Haleakala
  • driving on the road to Hana
  • a day at the beach (look out for sharks and coconuts and don’t forget the sunscreen!)
  • just about anything else that you can think of, after all, what is safer than a perfect safety record?

“These guys have a fantastic safety record and it's clear that they took this very seriously. Our preflight experience was great. The office staff is very professional and we felt that we were in good hands for our first helicopter tour. ” - KlassenFam

“ We found Air Maui to be very professional and concerned about your safety. Our female pilot has 32 yrs of flying experience and it showed, she maneuvered the helicopter so smoothly you had to enjoy the ride and views of waterfalls, canyons, shorelines etc., it was beautiful” - dmdjaj

“ We chose Air Maui because of their perfect safety record and we're very impressed with their operation. They were very professional and efficient.” - tag302

“ I have been afraid of heights my whole life and when confronting the fear by choosing Air Maui to take a tour of the islands, I was terrified. However, I knew that if I were to pick anyone to fly me, they would be at the top of my list. They have been in business for nearly 25 years now and have had 0 ACCIDENTS EVER. After taking off I soon discovered just how amazingly steady their flying was and I had absolutely no fright while flying.” - Gabriel R.
