Experience a 60 minute air tour of some of the most spectacularly beautiful scenery you will ever see. Air Ventures Hawaii offers 3 unique options for flight travel around the beautiful island of Kauai.</br></br>

Board our 6 passenger G-8 Airvan for breathtaking views of our diversely landscaped Island of Kauaii. During your 60-minute flight, you will view, from your large bubble window, the lush valleys, picturesque Waimea Canyon, cascading waterfalls, miles of Kauai's scenic beaches, as well as the magnificent Kalalau cathedrals of the NaPali Coast. </br></br>

For a more private air tour we offer a Cessna 182 affording the same awe inspiring views, but with only two or three passengers per flight on your 60-minute tour.</br></br>

Air Ventures Hawaii also offers you the ride of a lifetime in our 60-minute air tour in Kauai's <b>only open cockpit bi-plane<b>, our YMF-5 Classic Aircraft. While the pilot operates the controls from the rear, our passengers sit side-by-side in the comfortable OPEN cockpit. Each passenger has the option of wearing a nostalgic cloth helmet and goggles, together with a modern headset providing continuous two-way communication with the pilot.

We thought the bi-plane tour might be kind of scary! It wasn't at all! Kevin was a superb pilot, very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about that island. I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone visiting the island and looking to get a good overview of Kauai. Thanks again Airventures!!

My husband and I opted to do the biplane tour when we arrived in Kauai a few days ago. It was so awesome!! Our pilot Kevin was a great guide, starting from explaining the history of the plane itself, then sharing his almost 30 years of experience on the island in flight, and then finally culminating in an excellent restaurant...

We had an amazing time going up in the "Red Baron" biplane for a soaring journey over most of Kauai. Our pilot, Kevin, was extremely friendly and full of great facts and information during our journey. Needless to say, he was an excellent pilot, providing a smooth and comfortable ride. What a thrilling journey, with absolutely breath-taking views of the... More

With my over 50 years of flying, I can easily say this was a great flight! Our pilot, Dennis Erb, was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and above all, an outstanding and professional aviator... Thank you Dennis...

I did this flight a few years ago and enjoyed the smooth flight as a way to see the island. This repeat trip was even more spectacular! Weather was amazing, Eric was an awesome pilot , host, and tour guide. Well worth the time and money. A do over.

Kauai must be seen in this way. The scenery is staggering from the ground, but absolutely breathtaking from the air. We flew with Ray on a Private Airplane Tour, and were well looked after, both with supplies to help with air sickness and with an amazing flight of the island. I would highly recommend this company for a tour; they... More

We had the 'Red Baron' experience, surely the flight of a lifetime !! Harry, our pilot, was as professional as kind, very caring and so easy-going. He was happy to spend some time to explain us some details about the plane/engine and cheerful while giving us instructions to be safe and to fully enjoy every moment of the flight. Harry... More

This fell into my lap as it was a gift for someone else who couldn't make it, I was nervous, but once we got into the biplane and got in the air, I knew it was fortuitous that I was able to go. Our pilot, Kevin, was extremely knowledgeable and fun and gave one of the best tours I've had... More

I was absolutely terrified of going in a vintage bi-plane, but Kevin and the owners instantly calmed my fears and said he'd bring me right back if I didn't like it after a few minutes. Well, that wasn't necessary because I loved it! It was the smoothest ride with unbelievable views. We touched the clouds and took in the sights... More
