Frequently Asked Questions


Is there advantage to a doors-off helicopter flight compared to a doors-on flight?

You can still spend a wonderful time seeing great views of the island from doors-on flights, but doors-off flights will give you much better viewing opportunities, unobstructed range for panoramas, and aerial photo taking! You can book doors-off flights in Oahu with Magnum Helicopters and Paradise Helicopters.


What is the best time of the day to fly?

The best time to fly is from 8am - 11am. Mid-morning flights provide the best light and usually best weather conditions and fewer clouds.


Why should I include a helicopter ride on my trip itinerary?

Helicopter tours can be expensive, however, it is the best way for you to see the island and see places you can’t access by car or hiking. We recommend booking your flight at the beginning of the trip, this way you can see what other places you want to add to your itinerary to visit by car.


Does any Oahu helicopter tours provide a scenic landing opportunity?

Yes, Paradise Helicopters has a landing option at Kualoa Ranch. You will land at a remote location on top of a mountain with incredible views overlooking Kualoa Ranch’s famous Jurassic Valley and Kaneohe Bay. A champagne toast is also included and this is a great opportunity to propose.
