Owner description: Experience a 60 minute air tour of some of the most spectacularly beautiful scenery you will ever see. Air Ventures Hawaii offers 3 unique options for flight travel around the beautiful island of Kauai. Board our 6 passenger G-8 Airvan for breathtaking views of our diversely landscaped Island of Kauaii. During your 60-minute flight, you will view, from your large bubble window, the lush valleys, picturesque Waimea Canyon, cascading waterfalls, miles of Kauai's scenic beaches, as well as the magnificent Kalalau cathedrals of the NaPali Coast. For a more private air tour we offer a Cessna 182 affording the same awe inspiring views, but with only two or three passengers per flight on your 60-minute tour. Air Ventures Hawaii also offers you the ride of a lifetime in our 60-minute air tour in Kauai's only open cockpit bi-plane, our YMF-5 Classic Aircraft. While the pilot operates the controls from the rear, our passengers sit side-by-side in the comfortable OPEN cockpit. Each passenger has the option of wearing a nostalgic cloth helmet and goggles, together with a modern headset providing continuous two-way communication with the pilot.

The 5 of us totally enjoyed the flights and sights of the trip. Desi was extremely knowledgeable as well as entertaining as she narrated the sights of Kauai. I would recommend using Air Ventures without hesitation to anyone.

We had the best customer service I think I have ever experienced. The flight over the island was amazing but made really special by the hospitality we received.

We had the friendliest service ever by really genuine people who seem totally engaged with giving us the best possible experience, which is exactly what we got.

Jill went over and above our expectations and really went the extra mile to make the flight happen for us which we really appreciated.

Kevin was a great pilot, his knowledge of the island is amazing, he really put us at ease and made the flight feel safe, very informative and fun.

If you are planning on doing a Kauai scenic flight forget the rest, Air Ventures are the absolute best, I can't recommend them enough!

What a great adventure riding in bi-plane around Kauai! Had a beautiful day and the Bi Plane ride was great! The pilot was very knowledgeable about the whole island. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will probably take this ride again!

We have been on helicopter tours with doors on and doors off, the bi-plane was a totally different and good experience. Talk about up close and personal.

We took an hour flight to get a birds eye view of Kauai. Our pilot, Harry, was awesome. He provided a great overview of the unique sites. The open cockpit was a real rush. All the staff were welcoming and made sure we were well taken care of. Good job Air Hawaii!
