Top-Notch Staff


Those of us who live and work in Hawaii are part of a proud tradition in hospitality known as the Aloha Spirit—a legendary warmth and friendliness to guests that inspires everything we do. At Blue Hawaiian, this also means a rigorous attention to detail that is the benchmark of our industry.

We work with only the best pilots in the industry. Our 292-person team is made up of 57 pilots, each of whom has been carefully selected from the best in the profession. Our pilots have an average “pilot-in-charge” history of 7,500 hours and are required to complete annual factory recurrent training and quarterly pilot performance reviews. Blue Hawaiian is also the only helicopter tour company in Hawaii with its own state-of-the-art flight simulator for advanced continued pilot education. In addition to their piloting excellence, our pilots are also certified State of Hawaii Tour Guides, meaning that each has an exceptional knowledge of Hawaiian history, culture, flora, and fauna.

Every member of the Blue Hawaiian ohana—every pilot, mechanic and guest-relations specialist—shares this same passion and dedication to quality and customer satisfaction. Which is just one of the many reasons why, every year since 1995, we have received—among countless other awards and recognitions—the Six Star Diamond Award for Outstanding Quality and Service, from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences. No other helicopter tour company in the world has been so honored

For the tour of a lifetime every time, choose Blue Hawaiian.
