Experience a 60 minute air tour of some of the most spectacularly beautiful scenery you will ever see. Air Ventures Hawaii offers 3 unique options for flight travel around the beautiful island of Kauai.</br></br>

Board our 6 passenger G-8 Airvan for breathtaking views of our diversely landscaped Island of Kauaii. During your 60-minute flight, you will view, from your large bubble window, the lush valleys, picturesque Waimea Canyon, cascading waterfalls, miles of Kauai's scenic beaches, as well as the magnificent Kalalau cathedrals of the NaPali Coast. </br></br>

For a more private air tour we offer a Cessna 182 affording the same awe inspiring views, but with only two or three passengers per flight on your 60-minute tour.</br></br>

Air Ventures Hawaii also offers you the ride of a lifetime in our 60-minute air tour in Kauai's <b>only open cockpit bi-plane<b>, our YMF-5 Classic Aircraft. While the pilot operates the controls from the rear, our passengers sit side-by-side in the comfortable OPEN cockpit. Each passenger has the option of wearing a nostalgic cloth helmet and goggles, together with a modern headset providing continuous two-way communication with the pilot.

Our round island flight was one of the highlights of our trip. It was the perfect way to see the island and find out more about what we wanted to do and where we wanted to go. I'd recommend it as a great way to start your Kauai trip. The company were professional and safety orientated, but it was done... More

I chose to ride in the two seater biplane instead of the 6 seater plane because it was open air, cute, red, and had Snoopy painted on the wing. I love to fly but fear heights so I was afraid to try the helicopters, this was the best of all worlds for me and it was fun and exciting. The... More

Absolutely awesome! Kevin, our pilot was great. He was informative and really seems to love his job. The ride was smooth and not rushed. Beautiful views you won't see from the ground. Be sure to ask for Kevin, for two reasons: one, he's great, and two... Harry, the other pilot doesn't wash his hand after using the bathroom...... and I... More

This flight was fantastic and worth every cent! We thoroughly enjoyed the commentary from our pilot Kevin and saw some of the most wonderous scenery imaginable... and Pierce Brosnan's beach place! I can recommend this excursion and this friendly, professional company.

Our point of pick up for the trip was away from the normal spot so they sent over the owner to pick us up!!! She drove... More

You will get very good views, the pilot is nice, everything is smooth. However, what we noticed when on Kauai is that there seem to be sunlight <10am, then 12pm-2pm, and then >6pm mostly, and clouds during the rest of the time. So I would recommend either do a tour before 10am, or one in the afternoon. In our case,... More

We did the 'round the island, 65 minute tour. Probably easiest to book via telephone to get the times available as the website seemed to be behind on the online bookings. Not really an issue though... Flight itself was wonderful. Proper safety briefing with a bit of humour injected into it to keep everyone's attention. Pilot Kevin was informative but... More

We decided on the Bi -plane fly over as we had never ridden in a Bi-plane before. It was a great decision. Not only was the.view fantastic, the open cockpit, gave the fresh air experience, we would not have gotten in a chopper, orenclosed plane. We flew over many of the sites we had seen from the car but the... More

This bi-plane tour was honestly one of the coolest things I've ever done. My wife was a little apprehensive about the trip, but she settled in and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our pilot, Kevin, was very professional, knowledgeable about the area and the plane. Most importantly, we felt safe the entire trip. Very highly recommended! Book it!

Since I was a child, I have always wanted to fly in an open cockpit biplane. At 66 years old, that dream was on hold for quite awhile. In June, excellent pilot Harry and the great folks at Air Ventures Hawaii fulfilled that wish. I, my wife, daughter and granddaughter took the tour in pars, and we were all simply... More
