Air Maui Helicopters
The moment you enter Air Maui Helicopter’s terminal at the Kahului airport, it is evident that quality customer service is #1 for this operation. A friendly and professional staff greets you personally and assists with your check-in. Before take off, you can enjoy the retail shop which offers unique souvenirs, including Air Maui clothing.
Air Maui Leads the Way
While there are three major helicopter tour providers in the state of Hawaii, Air Maui Helicopters proudly boasts a perfect safety record of over twenty-five years. Steve Egger, the owner of the company, is a pilot himself and employs a staff with thousands of flight hours logged. Many of Air Maui Helicopter pilots served our country in an active military capacity and have flown in war zones. Needless to say, the sightseeing venue is far less demanding, and one’s sense of safety and confidence in the crew and craft is uncompromised. A remarkable bonus is the personability of the pilots and their knowledge of Maui’s history, flora/fauna, and geology as they entertain and inform you throughout the entire flight.
Safety Comes First at Air Maui
In addition to stringent pilot qualifications, Air Maui Helicopters’ maintenance crew is equally top-notch. The mechanics are not only factory trained to work on the A-Star helicopters, but also FAA certified. A new crew clocks in at the end of the flight day to examine every system, each piece, and part of all the choppers to ensure that the highest standards of safety and comfort are met. Maui Air Helicopters takes pride in the meticulous maintenance of its aircraft; their motto is, “if it’s not perfect, it doesn’t fly.”
The owner, Steve Egger, carefully chose the world’s best helicopter for touring: the American Eurocopter ASTAR. All seven seats (two seats up front with the pilot, and three in the back), are forward aligned and have an unobstructed 180-degree view – even the middle positions! The chairs themselves are uniquely designed for range of sight, safety and comfort; they’re outfitted in leather. The craft is pleasantly air-conditioned and equipped with digital stereo music and noise-reducing headsets. A terrific bonus is the aircraft’s MultiVision audio system which records every visual, background music as well as your pilot’s narrative throughout the flight. Your friends and family will be able to share your experience in HD with the USB flash drive you can take home with you!
Choose an Air Maui Helicopter Tour That’s Right for You
There are several tours to chose from, two popular ones are the West Maui and Molokai tour which reveals hidden waterfalls and rich rainforests as well as a view of the separate island of Molokai. The Hana/Haleakala tour reveals two geo sites that couldn’t be further apart – the moonlike surface of Haleakala crater and the lush jungles of Hana, along with the staggering beauty of the Maui coastline.
Air Maui Helicopters has an “entire island tour” as well. For those who want to get a bit more up-close and personal, there is the option to fly without the doors on the craft, very exhilarating and highly recommended!
