Owner description: Air Ventures invites you to experience a unique and comfortable airplane tour of some of the most spectacular scenery you will ever see. Sit back and relax while your professional pilot and our specially designed, brand new Airvan, gently escort you to breathtaking vantage points around the diversely intriguing Island of Kauai. View the lush valleys and jagged cliffs of the NaPali Coast, the picturesque Waimea Canyon, cascading waterfalls and miles of Kauai's scenic beaches. Air Ventures now offer Waco Bi-Plane tours. THE ONLY OPEN COCKPIT BI-PLANE RIDE ON KAUAI! The YMF-5 is specifically designed to carry a pilot and two passengers. While the pilot operates the controls from the rear, our passengers sit side-by-side in the comfortable OPEN cockpit. We provide each passenger with a nostalgic cloth helmet and goggles, along with a modern headset that provides continuous two-way communications with the pilot.

The service is fantastic, greeted by friendly staff upon arrival. The pilot was well versed on the natural history of the island as well as the settlement on the island of Kauai. The mountain ranges ore gorgeous and is most definitely a worth while trip. Nothing was rushed and had well over an hour of flight time on a 70... More

From the moment we taxied down the runway I felt comfortable and safe in the 6 seater fixed wing plane, as I am quite nervous about flying. The 60 mins just flew by as we soared like a bird over the rugged mountain ranges of Kauai, it was magic. We love Kauai, but this flight added a new dimension to... More

We chose this trip because one of the people in our party would have had to buy two tickets on a helicopter plus the price was more reasonable and lasted longer. The flight very nice and took us all over the island the pilot was very knowledgeable. It was a great trip definetly got our money's worth and would recommend... More

Bryan led us on a once in a lifetime ride over the island. He was extremely thorough and considerate of those sitting on both the left and right side of the plane. I have been to Kauai before but only after this airplane tour do I feel like I know Kauai. I highly recommend it!!

My family and I had an AMAZING flight and overall experience .We took the most breathtaking pictures and saw parts of the island you can only see in a plane. The pilot was very personable and educated us on the history of the island. This is a must see for anyone visiting Kauai, worth every penny. ALOHA

My family and I had a wonderful flight around the island. the captain was really great and personable. This was my husband and my second trip on Air Ventures and it will not be our last. Looking forward to our next one. Our trip was family of 5 adults but that option isn't available below

Totally an amazing flight and incredible views of the island! A trip by air is the only way you will be able to see the unreachable places of Kauai. Coastlines, mountains, volcanic craters, waterfalls, canyons, ranches and lands - all spectacular from this vantage point. Our pilot was great, funny and informative...and the ground crew was very helpful too.

My husband and I did the bi-plane tour with Pilot Paul. This is a great tour for people who have been to Kauai many times and would like something different to do as well as for those who are adventurous. It is not, however, for the faint of heart. I love small planes but the open cockpit was rather uncomfortable... More
