Free Upgrade to "Doors-Off" Flight (until 2019/12/31)

Upgrade any flight to a doors-off helicopter flight for no additional cost! This will give you a much better viewing angle and an unobstructed panoramic range, perfect for aerial photography.

To secure arrangements, please indicate whether you would like a doors-off flight upon check-out.

Fly with Novictor, where doors-off flights are at no additional cost, and every passenger gets a window seat! This 30-minute flight of southeastern Oahu begins in Waikiki, allowing you to see Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head before heading to Hanauma Bay and Makapuu Point in the southeast. Then, head north to visit the three peaks of Olomana before passing over the Pali Lookout to return to Honolulu. The tour ends with a short trip over Pearl Harbor. This exciting flight shows off the best of Honolulu and Kailua.
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.

The helicopter tour was informative and beautiful. I particularly liked being able to see Pearl Harbor from above. The guides were friendly and the staff was very organized. Would highly recommend!
