Bruce the owner and pilot is a great guy. Very safety focused and really takes care of you during the whole trip. Typically his flights are much smoother than a helicopter and relaxing. Bruce has lived on the island a long time and is a great historian and really gives you the low down on the island. My kids loved it.

We just returned from our trip to Hawaii and we are still talking about the wonderful flight we had with Josh at Wings Over Kawaii. Ellen helped us with the arrangements and even picked us up and drove us to the airport. The flight was truly wonderful, great value, and very informative. We even received a video of the flight to take home as well as pics in our in box!! The service and friendliness of all were super and it was likely the best value we had for our tourist dollars. It is a must -do!!

Our experience could not have been any better: great people, perfect weather, a smooth flight and the most amazing views of Kauaii from the air. I was able to take amazing pictures (bring your zoom lens!) and we will recommend Wings over Kauaii to anybody that visits this amazing island.

We were met by friendly helpful staff and checked in for the flight. Millie the dog and our pilot Josh came up to greet us, both very personable. We filled out the prerequisite forms on an iPad and were given a safety brief on their aircraft.

We loaded up, each passenger was given noise canceling headsets which make small aircraft flight much more comfortable. While Josh wasn't talking to ATC he was talking to us and asking questions of each passenger, stealthily determining if anyone's anxiety might need to be addressed.

We took off over the beach and made a right turn down the east coast, with island music playing softly in the background and Josh giving interesting tidbits of knowledge as we go. Josh thanked me for my occasional habitual traffic calls on the intercom while my wife suggested I sit quietly because he had it under control. She was right of course, and as a fellow pilot I appreciate how well Josh did have everything under control.

About an hour of spectacular scenery including whales, cliffs, waterfalls, beaches, coffee plantations, movie sites, and tropical beauty. It was great!
