Hawaii’s best helicopter tours, flying since 2011.
JUL • 2021
An entire decade ago our founder and chief pilot Nicole Battjes began flying our signature doors off tours with just one Robinson R44 helicopter.
Over the years our fleet has grown to four R44’s with our newest addition of two Airbus Astars to our ‘Ohana. We continue to evolve everyday flying Hawaii’s best helicopter tours but one thing will always remain the same – we fly our breathtaking island tours with the same Aloha spirit of our first flight 10 years ago.
“10 years ago on this day I remember registering my small business with the State of Hawaii with dreams of becoming the biggest helicopter operator in Hawaii! I was 27 years old and had every bit of faith I would make it. Here we are at 37 with that same lioness roar to be the best. But now, my vision of what best means is totally different than that young woman who started this business 10 years ago.”
“My vision of being the best is now centered on being the best place to work for my crew, the safest place to fly for my guests, the most joyful activity to experience, and the most supportive leader and member of the community I can be. The helicopter industry has taught me everything about what’s important in life, and I have all the people who have worked with me and for me and the wonderful guests over the years to thank for that! Thank you for your continued support of my company. The pride I feel today is overflowing.”
