Private Flights

A private tour is when one party flies on a helicopter at a time. Guests who purchase a single-seat may be seated with other passengers outside of their party. For a complete private flight experience, guests can choose our “private buy-out” option available for any tour.

Social Distancing

Guests and staff are asked to maintain a six-foot distance from one another and sneeze/cough into an elbow. Please refrain from shaking hands and engaging in unnecessary physical contact with those outside your party while on our premises. If you are experiencing any symptoms such as cough, fever, abnormal fatigue, or not feeling well please refrain from entering our facilities.

Modified Cabin Space

Our MD 500 aircraft is offered as a doors off option which allows for optimal airflow during your flight. Our Bell 407 and twin engine Bell 430 helicopters have been installed with a partition to divide the cockpit from the main passenger cabin which allows for separate air circulation from two independent air circulation systems servicing the cockpit and cabin separately.

Modified Check-in

We have shortened our check-in time to 30 minutes prior to your flight. To encourage a contactless check-in experience, we are currently not accepting cash as a form of payment. If you are exhibiting COVID-like symptoms (dry cough/ fever/abnormal fatigue), please notify us immediately before you go to our base of operations. Any guests or staff who are not feeling well are required to stay home. If you are exhibiting symptoms upon check-in, you will be asked to postpone your flight. Staff may ask to check your temperature to ensure you are not exhibiting symptoms for the safety of our staff and other passengers. For the safety of our staff, we reserve the right to refuse service to any guest we feel is exhibiting symptoms.

Face Masks

Per Hawaii’s Governor Emergency Proclamation and CDC guidelines, guests aged five (5) years and older are required to wear a face mask (covering the nose and mouth) during their time in and around our facilities and aircraft. Guests flying on our doors-off flights must wear a mask that fits tightly behind the ears to ensure it will not leave the aircraft during flight.

Monitoring Symptoms

If you are exhibiting COVID-like symptoms before you fly (dry cough/ fever/abnormal fatigue), please notify us immediately before you go to our base of operations. Any guests or staff who are not feeling well are required to stay home. If you are exhibiting symptoms upon check-in, you will be asked to postpone your flight. Staff may ask to check your temperature to ensure you are not exhibiting symptoms. For the safety of our staff, we reserve the right to refuse service to any guest we feel is exhibiting symptoms. In addition, all pilots receive routine screening for COVID-19.

Cleaning & Sanitization

Hand sanitizer will be provided to all staff and guests. Employees are required to wash their hands regularly. Sanitization via spray, wipe or fogger are used in all aircraft prior to boarding. Seatbelts and headsets are sanitized between flights.

We are committed to making your adventure with us nothing short of amazing. We have taken many risk mitigation measures to ensure your safety while flying with us. Along with our mandatory COVID-19 procedures, we will be requesting for you to complete a COVID-19 waiver upon your arrival to help ensure the safety of our staff and other passengers. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you soon.
