Acroflight International’s FAA-certified pilots grant sightseers a nene’s-eye view of the North Shore and entertain adrenaline-seekers with exhilarating aerobatic flights filled with maneuvers. Following a short briefing, a glider carries the pilot and one passenger over the beach and above pods of wild surfboards migrating north to spawn. On the aerobatic excursion, pilots confer with daredevil passengers to get the all clear before cartwheeling into lazy eights, rolls, loops, and hammerheads. Passengers who prefer to view the panoramic scenery right side up can instead use the flight as an opportunity to take in expansive views of the sunny, light sand beaches passing beneath the whisper-quiet glider.
During the 25-minute Waimea Falls tour, single passengers can observe vistas of Waimea Bay and Waimea Falls through the plane’s bubble-top canopy. At a safe altitude, the pilot disengages the engine to glide gracefully upon the air currents and waltz with the trade winds until touching down on the runway. Passengers should allow about an hour for the entire flight experience to accommodate weather delays and Mothra sightings.
Acroflight International's FAA–certified pilots grant sightseers a nene's-eye view of the North Shore and verdant landscape of Waimea Valley, which stretches across 1,800 acres of land. Inside blissfully quiet gliders, lush greenery and azure waters pass by underfoot as pilots wend their way toward waterfalls, shorelines, and remote sea cliffs, or hop to a nearby island. In stark contrast to these serene jaunts, aerobatic flights turn Hawaii on its head with flips, spins, and twirls that experienced acrobatic pilots customize to suit each passenger’s adrenaline levels.
