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 Kauai is one of the safest things that you can do on Kauai!

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?

Air Maui prides itself on providing the best experience for its guests. Part of this experience is putting everyone at ease by providing a safe and professional ride without sacrificing an awe-inspiriting, exhilarating, once-in-a-life-time tour. Here is what some guests have to say about their time with Air Maui.

“The scenery was gorgeous and breathtaking! The pilot was friendly and informative. We loved the up close views of these remote beaches and waterfalls.” – dtsnoopdol

“A great experience for my family! The weather was foggy, but Captain Kirk knew where to go for splendid views. Definitely an unforgettable trip. I tend to get motion sick easily (I can’t ride in the back seat of a car), but the trip was surprisingly easier than I expected. I held the puke bag the whole time, but didn’t need it!” – Adrienne L

“The views seen by way of helicopter are amazing, but with the doors off you can have an even bigger & clearer picture of the fantastic scenes below. Highly recommend.” – Paul S

“Our. Pilot, Cameron, was excellent. He gave us great view of Maui and Molokai. Awesome waterfalls, deep valleys and to wring sea cliffs. We learned about the history and people of the islands as well. It was a birthday gift to my wife but we both enjoyed it” – Scott B

“My only complaint is that the video of our flight did not download. Extremely disappointing. I would have used my cellphone more had I even thought the video would not load. Other than that the doors off experience is must” – PhillyHomeBoy
