One of the greatest flying experiences of my life with Eric Gilbert,CFI.,CFII of Maui Aviators. I have been flying for 35 years I contacted Maui Aviators at Kahului Airport and checked out a C172 with Eric for a scenic flight. Having a CFI along really helps with the workload in a new flying environment. What an amazing flight! Eric is... More

I was on a family holiday in Kehei and I am a commercial pilot. Everyone knows that as a pilot all we want to do is fly whenever the opportunity arises. So I did some checking around online and called these guys. I opted instead of an actual checkout to go for an hour and a half flight with instructor... More

As a low time Canadian pilot (150 hrs) visiting Maui I appreciated the guidance and support from Eric who flew along with me, managed the radios and provided guidance around the islands. We experienced the spectacle of the Whale Birthing season from 500' above the water, flew over Maui, Molaki, Lanai and points between. While flying is always a treat,... More

Met Eric for my BFR. They could start earlier than our scheduled time so they called to see if I could move things up. Worked out great and we were done in time for lunch in the little town of Paia. Great day, awesome service and got my BFR done in an awesome location!

My brother and I had a great flight with Eric Gilbert. The weather was beautiful and we were able to fly around 3 different islands in the hour and a half that we spent with him. He shared with us a great amount of his knowledge of the different places we flew and we really enjoyed it. Thank you!!!

Hawaii is a great place to fly, and Maui Aviators made the experience perfect. We flew with Eric in a well-maintained C172. The scenery is spectacular, of course, and Eric made it even better by explaining what we were looking at. Having an instructor in the right seat was also nice because he could take over flying while I took... More

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.
