My wife and I are flying enthusiasts and we chose to rent Iolani's C-172 with a G-1000, what a beautiful plane!!!! We flew with Michael, a great and super relax CFI that pointed the way and handled the radios. I flew as PIC and Michael never touched the plane as I seem to have passed his eagle eye proficiency test on take offs and landings. We are very picky about renting planes and this plane was in top notch condition and Michael was a lot of fun to fly with. Flying Kona was very special late afternoon and all of our expectations were met. Ask for Michael to be your CFI-tour guide.

We flew with "Dale" and had a great time flying over the beautiful Big Island coastline coastline, the lava entry points in the ocean and the land and the waterfalls. Dale was very great and also very knowledgeable of all things Hawaii. It is certainly a great way to see the Island and enjoy the incredible scenery.

We did a private tour of the island in a Cesna with Tim, our pilot. He was fantastic & did a great job; making us feel safe whilst providing a fun and educational tour of the island. We saw lava flows, volcano vents, waterfalls, cinder cones & even dolphins playing in the ocean! I highly recommend this tour. It is certainly a great way to see the island and probably the best tour I've ever done.

Perfect end to a terrific vacation. Pilot Tim Levin was safe, professional and incredibly knowledgeable. Two and half hour tour of the Big Island included volcanos, water falls and incredible scenery. Don't miss this tour!!
