I just loved this experience. The staff was so friendly and helpful. I was very surprised at how much of the flying you got to do. The taxi on the runway, the take off, and the whole flight. I would do this again and again.

I am a Private Pilot and wanted to experience flying in Hawaii. I had booked well in advance and wanted to rent the plane by myself, but realized it will cost more on check ride. So instead flew with Eric. My wife sat behind in Cessna 172. This institution is a flight school as well and I could see that... More

While in Hawaii, you must visit the Maui Aviators and fly around the islands, spectacular views and an unbelievable experience. We flew for only an hour but I would recommend at least 1.5 or more, our pilot Eric was so cool and gave the controls over to me right away! Flying a small plane is an unbelievable experience but there's... More

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.
