Great flight of the sights!

Definitely a great way to see the island(s). We opted for the 'Circle Maui County' flight and time 'flew' by. Glad we did the longer flight. Thanks to Pilot Katy for the tour!

I wouldn't change a thing! My wife and I just did a two hour flight with Katy in a 180 HP C172. What a treat! The plane flies nicely, the wind is strong on the surface but the air is smooth. Two people can see twice as many places as you would see in a helicopter and for about 1/2... More

Took my wife on the long Maui County trip. Lucas, CFI, provided the local flavor and instruction. I selected N7318G, strong but not a cream puff. The newer C172's would be a better choice if you plan on leaving Maui County, eg Oahu, Big Island. The 2hr flight gave a complete view of the two driving tours we had completed... More

called up maui aviators to see if they did an intro to flight package. They did and I always wanted to give flying a shot. Eric was our CFI and was he great! Really made the experience enjoyable. I was able to run the controls most of the trip. We flew to the Hana airport and back to Kahului. So... More

Rented a C172 with CFI for 3 hrs while vacationing in Hawaii. Katy from Maui Aviators and I took off from Kahului, flew over to Lanai and practiced touch-and-go's at Kalaupapa, then flew across the island, caught the shipwrecks off Molokai, then looked for whales off the coast of Maui. The weather wasn't great on the southeast side, so then... More

We were able to fly with our friend who is a pilot along with Lucas for an amazing trip around Maui. Great experience all around! We saw whales, dolphin and an overall great view of the island. Lucas was a first-rate tour guide and added a lot to our trip.

My husband is a commercial pilot and has always wanted to fly around the Hawaiian Islands- this experience surpassed our expectations in every way. We decided to have an instructor come along with us instead of spending the time getting checked out- best decision we made! It was like having our own personal tour guide. And if I wanted to...

Private pilot visiting Maui for the first time. Flew their 172 w/ CFI Eric (dual received). Sons, ages 11 and 13 in the back seat. Eric worked the radios and narrated an incredible 1.8 hour tour of Maui and two adjacent islands while I enjoyed flying some of the most awesome landscapes I've seen. An unbelievable, incredible adventure. Much more... More

I have a Canadian PPL and wanted to do some flying in the Hawaiian Islands. John at Maui Aviators did a good job of describing the options available. I chose to go with an instructor simply to avoid the work of understanding the airspace & radio reporting requirements. When we arrived at the field, the equipment was pre-flighted and ready...

My son and I rented a 172 from these guys, along with a pilot ride-along. The pilot was very pleasant. He is probably an ok pilot. But his primary interest was in simply taking us on his prearranged route. He wanted to fly at 1500 feet along the Molokai coast; I wanted to fly at 500 on the grounds that... More
