Novictor offers the only nighttime helicopter flights on the island, allowing you to see the brilliant city lights or phenomenal fireworks show from the sky. You have the choice of experiencing your aerial tour without doors to hinder your panoramic views of Waikiki, the Honolulu skyline & the Friday fireworks show! More comfortable with the doors on? Novictor can add or remove individual doors before takeoff with no added cost. This flight takes you past Aloha Tower to Waikiki, where a fireworks show is held every Friday night, then back to Pearl Harbor to end your nighttime tour of Honolulu.
Please Note: Novictor Aviation flies the skies of Hawaii in Robinson R-44 aircraft with a seating capacity of three passengers per flight. This ensures that all passengers are guaranteed a window seat. Parties of four or larger can be accommodated by flying multiple aircrafts around the island simultaneously.

How should I dress for my flight?
  • The temperature aboard the helicopter is very comfortable during flights and t-shirts and shorts are just fine. However, if you choose a doors-off tour, your flight will be windy and cold so jackets and sweatshirts are required and long pants are recommended. Please note that hats are not allowed because of the risk of flying into the rotor and damaging the craft.
What is the difference between doors on and doors off flights?
  • Doors-on tours are more comfortable and you can easily hear music and narration. You’ll enjoy window seating with unobstructed views from the top of your head to your waist. Doors off helicopter tours are available by request and are a little more exciting. Please note that they are windy and colder so you will have to wear warmer clothes. Doors-off tours also provide a better photographic experience as you will enjoy unobstructed floor-to-ceiling views.
How experienced are the pilots?
  • Novictor Aviation employs some of the most skilled pilots in the state and hold them to the highest standards. Pilots are very experienced in their knowledge of Hawaiian skies, climates, and terrain. Their abilities will put you at ease as you fly over the beaches, mountains, and sights of the Islands.
Are young children allowed on flights?
  • Yes, children of all ages are welcome on-board the flights and there are even have baby headsets for them to wear. Please be aware that FAA regulations require a full-fare seat for children 24 months and over. Children 23 months and under are welcome to sit on the lap of a responsible adult at no charge. Please keep in mind, however, that children are not allowed on doors-off flights.
