Our Kapolei West O'ahu tours depart from the Kalaeloa Airport

Kalaeloa Airport was formerly known as Barbers Point Naval Air Station and was used by the U.S. Navy in 1939 as a mooring station for airships and was a key point of operations during World War II.

Four of the buildings on Kalaeloa Airport property are eligible for the National Register of Historic Places - the Air Traffic Control Tower, two hangars, and a maintenance building that was once used for torpedo assembly.

Why choose a Hawai'i Helicopter Tour from Kapolei West O'ahu?

Conveniently located only fifteen minutes from the Ko Olina resort area, this airport is located in up-and-coming Kapolei and away from the throngs of Honolulu traffic. Known locally as the "second city" of O'ahu, Kapolei is about 25 miles west of downtown Honolulu. Prior to being developed, this fertile area was home to sugarcane and pineapple fields.

If you're staying downtown or in Waikiki, a visit to laid-back Kapolei for an unforgettable helicopter adventure is a great way to spend the day. Once you're in the air, the whole island of O'ahu is yours to explore, from the North Shore's wild and wonderful surf breaks to Diamond Head, Sacred Falls, and the bustling south coast of the island.
