Big Island Air

Big Island Air offers three different tours on their air conditioned Cessna Grand Caravan EX, which is the only turbine-engine, jet prop tour airplane in the State of Hawaii. Turbine engines are superior to piston or reciprocation engines in terms of safety, reliability and performance. The added power of a turbine allows us to show many places/things a conventional engine will not allow while operating well within the aircraft's normal range limits. Turbine engines are much quieter, allowing better clarity of both music and pilot narration. Every passenger has a spacious window seat and a "picture window" view. The high wing design and large windows of the caravan allow excellent, unobstructed views of our island.
