Eric gave us such a wonderful experience this morning on our flight seeing trip between Maui and the Big Island. It was a gorgeous flight and we got to see Haleakala, Waipi’o Valley, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. We also were able to view the site of the latest lava flows from 2018 and could even still see steam rising from the fissure. What a wonderful way to see both Maui and the Big Island - even for those like us who have been visiting for almost two decades. We felt safe and secure the entire time and can’t wait to come back out on another trip. If you are trying to decide between a helicopter tour and a fixed wing - I would recommend going with Eric in a fixed wing every time - it’s a much faster way to get to the sites, and far smoother than any helicopter tour we have done on Maui with other providers.

Mahalo for the great flight!

Eric (my private pilot) was knowledgeable and safe at all times: Giving me a great overview of Maui Molokin volcano crater and seeing also Kihei and Haleakala mountain. The experience was amazing, timeless and breathtaking. An experience of a life time. I definitely recommend it.

Eric was awesome, easy going and fun, full of interesting information about Maui. Fun flight with beautiful views from the air. Would recommend Maui plane rides to everyone for a personal experience away from the crowds and large group activities.

Steve was our pilot and did an amazing job navigating us with strong winds which made me feel safe! The views along the Road to Hana on the 30 minute photo flight were lovely, it was amazing to see Maui from up in the air. I was worried about not being able to get good pictures from the airplane but it was not a problem at all. I would love to come back and do another tour during my next visit!

The overall experience with Maui Plane Rides was amazing! It started with the pilot Laura greeting us with Hawaiian lei. She is very personable and communicates very well. On top of that, she is very knowledgeable about everything from the destination to how to fly a plane. The tour we selected was private tour to Big Island volcano. We were able to see the crater despite of a cloudy day. The even better part was that we were able to fly the plane ourselves for about 10 to 15 minutes each with Laura’s help. It was definitely a lifetime experience! She also positioned the airplane in such way that we could take perfect photos and videos. There were a few bumpy spots along the way and Laura communicated in a timely and clearly manner to make sure we were comfortable. Another highlight of the trip was the local Big Island restaurant that Laura took us to for lunch was very good.

We highly recommend fly with Maui Plane Rides and Laura!

Mahalo !

Had a blast! Eric was great and friendly, we had an awesome time flying over Volcanoes National Park and taking a pit stop in Hilo for lunch. 10/10 would definitely recommend! I’ve done helicopter tours before (not on Hawaii) and this was hands down 100x better. Completely worth the money, you get a private tour and a hands on experience that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to get elsewhere. The plane doesn’t have air conditioning, which was something I was leery on, but when you’re up in the sky there’s a little opening in the window that lets fresh air in that’s nice, cool and comfortable and that’s coming from someone who’s dying without A/C. Don’t think about it, JUST DO IT! ZERO regrets or buyers remorse! Thank you again Eric!

It was a partially cloudy-raining day, but Laura took us around the rain and showed us the majestic beautiful of the 5 islands. She really made the ride feel extremely safe on the raining day. Highly recommended to everyone!

Our pilots Laura and Eric were very friendly and informative pointing out lava fields, beaches, waterfalls, valleys, land-markings, breathtaking views, etc. this is a trip everyone should see. Eric showed us photos he took on different days and times and it is truly amazing to see this from the air and close up
Weather was perfect even though they predicted low clouds the night before.
Amazing excursion, everyone should do it!!
Thank you both so much for the experience and memory 😃

This was AMAZING! I felt Safe, Smooth, Secure in my private window seat and the window for taking pictures is like nothing I've seen before. The pilot is like super friendly, and he shares his dream with you. You walk away hugging him, the experience is incredible. I recommend it. I give it 5 PLUS stars!

The airplane tour over Molokai cliffs was as impressive as I had imagined. The views were grand and surreal riding along the clouds, over the blues of the Pacific and island.
The morning flight certainly has better lighting, specially for photography. It was spectacular to learn about the history and stories of the islands we were flying over. Grateful to our pilot Laura Bobzin for a fantastic tour and narration and care right from the time she welcomed us, boarded the flight, took off, toured until the final touchdown.
