Thank You!!! Big Island Spectacular

THANK YOU, for flying over my home, and making a peaceful, quiet moment a reminder of my military days. i'm a 100% disabled Army vet, and i can't take enough meds to help w/ their completely, obvious inconsideration of us local people living under their blades. they don't care. so enjoy your flights over our private homes in their uncaring flight paths. i've written "to the editor" letters, some politicians here even side with us, for their agendas, local group called hicop.org even, but it doesn't matter. the owners want to be rich, the pilots don't care, as long as they get their pay, the customers don't care, as long as they get their view, of whatever, and how we local live, on our private properties, under their blades. every day, day in and day out. we have no choice. so i'll just take another pill, when i hear them in the distance.

Big Island Spectacular

One of the best birthdays ever! Seeing the island from the air is far more exciting and unique than your imagination. Our pilot was a great tour guide and made the entire experience perfect. The moment we landed, we wanted to go again.

Great flight & pilot Big Island Spectacular

We took an island tour with our Blue Hawaiian Helicopter pilot Toshi this afternoon and we had a great time! It’s a relatively expensive couple of hours, but well worth it for how much ground can be covered in the air versus driving about the Big Island. Toshi was a very safe, knowledgeable and entertaining pilot who have his five passengers the benefit of his 20+ years as a pilot for Blue Hawaiian. The Airbus helicopter we used was clean and, obviously, very well maintained. The cabin was kept cool and comfortable despite the outside heat. We saw the Big Island from one end to the other and more volcanoes that I’ve ever seen in one small area. At the end of the ride we even saw whales at play just offshore. Fun from start to finish and highly recommended!
