Description: Air Ventures invites you to experience a unique and comfortable airplane...
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.

Our Pilot and his staff were very friendly and made us feel very comfortable. If you want to see Kauai in all it's glory.... you must see it from the sky. Our pilot was very knowledgeable about Island history and answered our questions well. I would definitely recommend this company to a friend.

We had a wonderful trip with our knowledgeable pilot Harry. We were upgraded to a private plane for our trip around and over the island. Sites were breathtaking! There is no other way to see Kauai! The staff and owners were personable, accomodating.

We had a great experience with the air tour. Eric, our pilot, made us feel at ease right away, and we had a lovely trip. He spent a little extra time circling a couple of whales we saw in the ocean, and we got as close as we dared to go to the beautiful cliffs and scenery.

This was a fun tour and one of the few ways you'll get to experience the Wimean Canyon and Nepali coast since most of it isn't accessible by car. Our pilot was very knowledgeable and professional. The only drawback is take precautions if you are prone to motion sickness. The plane is small (holds 6 passengers) and loud. It's not... More

We stayed at the Grand Hyatt, and the first day I saw this Red Bi-Plane fly over. We had planned on touring the island by helicopter. With the set-up of my wife and I being able to have a private tour....that was the ultimate. My wife was a little tentative at first, but after we took off, we both were... More

My wife and I went on the Biplane tour with Pilot Harry and it was just awesome! What a perfect flight, beautiful weather, outrageous scenery! This was a nice smooth flight (warm too because you sit right behind engine) and Harry isn't one of those Pilots that feel they need to do a stand-up routine for the entire flight. I... More

A spectacular biplane flight with our pilot. We had a perfect day with no clouds and light winds so could go anywhere on the island. The cockpit is a bit tight but manageable. The only thing to look out for is it is a little difficult to take photos with the airstream rushing by, and your camera will probably focus... More

My family group of 6 was able to crowd into one of the Air Van flights along with the pilot. We got our own private tour of Kaui. It was beautiful. The pilot was very seasoned, and knowledgeable, and it was fun to "co-pilot" the small plane from the Lihue airport. We'd found a coupon from a free DVD from... More

The pilot was great, very friendly. The view was amazing and well worth every penny. I would recommend Air Ventures to anyone looking for a way to see the island from above.
