FAQ

What is the difference between the First Class (Co-Pilot Seat) and Open Seating
Open Seating offers raised seats and unobstructed views while Preferred Seating is our most popular option. This First Class experience includes sitting next to the pilot, extra arm and leg room, and no one in front of you to obstruct your views of the island!
Is there a safe place to store my belongings while on tour?
Yes, there are lockers available free of charge that are large enough to hold a few handbags. The key is kept by the staff at the base while you enjoy your flight.
Is giving a tip (gratuity) required?
Gratuity is never required, but if you enjoyed your experience a tip is always greatly appreciated!
How far in advance should I book this activity?
We recommend booking at least 1-2 weeks in advance. If you have very specific schedule requirements and are not flexible, please book sooner. Last minute availability is often possible, but limited.
What kind of helicopter will be used?
The Bell Jet 407 is a 6-passenger aircraft flown for the Hawaii Experience and Volcano & Valley Landing flights that depart from Kona. This aircraft has the fastest cruise speed of any helicopter on the islands and offers unsurpassed comfort and a virtually vibration-free ride. Its over-sized sliding windows offer great picture taking views and it is capable of flying non-stop around the entire Big Island, giving you as much time in the air as time permits!
