“Great from start to finish. The helpful ground crew explained how to stay safe. Even provided ginger mints to prevent motion sickness. Our pilot Josh was amazingly smart and great at explaining details as we flew. Definitely would recommend!”
“An amazing experience from the reception, the takeoff, our trip, and the send-off. Amazing people, amazing experience!!!”
“Great 2 hour tour with Kalei as pilot in command. Excellent narratives, beautiful views, comfortable aircraft and an overall good time was had by all. Don't miss an oppurtunity to fly Paradise when in Kona.”
The Paradise Difference
Aloha is the coordination of heart and mind to emote good feelings. Experience the philosophy that makes Hawaiʻi unlike anywhere else on the planet.
Our sustaining relationships and respect for the traditions of Hawaiʻi have earned us access to private and remote locations no other tour company can provide.
Paradise Helicopters was the first company in the world to earn accreditation by the Helicopter Association International Accreditation Program of Safety (HAI-APS) for Air Tour Operations.
Mālama Aina is a Hawaiian term that means “to care for and nurture the land” and it is woven into the ethos of everything we do at Paradise Helicopters
The latest happenings at Kīlauea, Mauna Loa, and Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park
We still come across people who remember our name due to footage they saw shot during that era showing the owner of our company, Cal, flying over lava and working with a ground crew of veterinarians and paniolo, or Hawaiian cowboys, to rescue stranded animals.
