Kauai Sightseeing Air Tour On Board a GA-8 Airvan

Fly with a Hawaiian, family owned business, dedicated to your comfort and safety. This state of the art GA-8 Airvan aircraft is specifically designed for aerial sightseeing and flies at a slower pace for optimal viewing and photography. The Airvan is known for its HUGE bubble windows, smooth ride, wide cabin doors for easy access, and provides the most spacious cabin for comfortable seating. Used by Civil Air Patrol for search and rescue, this aircraft is very safe and has the best visibility of any seven passenger plane on the market. Every flight is narrated by one of our professional pilots. Passengers will have a two-way noise reduction headset with a microphone, so they can communicate with their Aloha Spirited pilot throughout the flight. The panoramic views you will see from this plane are like no other, this is the best way to experience Kauai.

Enjoy views of the Menehune Fish Pond, the Eucalyptus Tunnel of Trees, Waita Reservoir (the largest reservoir on Kauai), Captain Cook’s Landing in Waimea Town, the breathtaking Waimea Canyon, the majestic Napali Coastline, Lumahai Beach (were the movie “South Pacific” was filmed), Hanalei Valley, beautiful cascading waterfalls, Kilauea Lighthouse (the largest frigate bird sanctuary), and miles of stunning coastline and beaches.

Every seat is a window seat!

GA-8 Airvan – Built for Touring and Comfort:

The Airvan is a very spacious aircraft (there are no “middle” seats) and every seat has a extra-large bubble window specifically designed for sightseeing and photography – so everyone can enjoy the view. The airplane’s slower speed allows optimal exposure time for viewing Kauai’s most awesome features.

What is the difference between a helicopter tour and an airplane tour?

Both regulated by the same FAA routes and altitudes. The tour highlights are the same.  Airvan flights are usually smoother & fly at a much slower speed offering a great view of Kauai with extra-large window seats for all 6 passengers. There is also a more lenient weight restriction of 300lbs per passenger on the GA-8 Airvan.

  1. BARRY C. LAWRENCE says:

    I have done the helicopter tours and they are nice, but I have to say the Cessna Shywagon Air Ventures uses is by far superior. We could see more by not being so close to things, we got to fly in an area where we could see so much more of the island the land and the water and when it came time to get close we did that too. The flight lasted over an hour and seemed more leisurely and did not seem rushed at all.
    The pilot talked about everything we saw even what was happening on the airplanes instruments and communication with the tower.
    we took hundreds of photos and Highly recommend this flight tour!
