CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE:

For Aviation Enthusiasts, if you are interested in learning the basics of what it would take to learn how to fly yourself as a certificated pilot, Wings Over Kauai offers this to you as an  “Introduction to Flight Training” experience. During this unique and awesome opportunity, you are able to handle the flight controls and learn basic maneuvers like climbs, descents and turns, with a certified flight instructor next to you. You also learn about basic aircraft systems, safety precautions, basic navigation and scanning for traffic. The instructor handles the radio work and the take-off and the landing, but will explain the procedures to you. Your one-hour WOK Introductory Flight can be logged and count towards the hours required to become a licensed pilot.

See some beautiful scenery and learn how to control an aircraft in flight, all under the watchful eye of an experienced teacher, and in a reliable aircraft that is perfectly suited to learning how to fly. Although we do not offer multiple flight recurrent training, Wings Over Kauai can provide one-hour recurrent training or refresher flights to student or licensed pilots.

The cost will be $159 per person plus 6% tax. Minimum of 2 persons, maximum of three.  Body weight of combined passengers under 470 pounds.  This will include 65 minute private tour, during which you will see almost the entire island. You will taxi out on the Lihue Airport Runway, fly out over the ocean, circling Kipu Kai, then on the west side up Waimea Canyon, popping over to the amazing Na Pali Coast.

You will cruise the entire Na Pali, then Hanalei Bay and the waterfalls of the interior at Mt. Wai`aleale before coming in for a landing at Lihue Airport. This is the same route all the tour operators here take, helicopters and airplanes, and it is very memorable. For pilots, I can honestly say you will love our Kauai flight lessons!
