Sunshine Helicopter

Sunshine Helicopters offers a full selection of different helicopter adventures touring the island of Maui, the Big Island of Hawaii and the island of Kauai. The company's founder and operator is Ross Scott and he began flying helicopters as a gunship pilot in Viet Nam. After the war he worked for an aviation company in Alaska where he managed fifty airplanes and thirty helicopters. His experience there led him eventually to Maui where he opened up his own company, Sunshine Helicopters. Sunshine has been operational for years and on Maui offers tours to Haleakala, Hana, West Maui and to the nearby island of Molokai. His aircraft are primarily FX-Star helicopters but a good number of them are the advanced model of the FX-Star which Sunshine refers to as Whisper-Stars because of the quite nature of the engines. .......On Kauai Sunshine operates from, arguably, the very best location on the island. There is no doubt that the highest point of interest of all the possible sites to be seen on all of Kauai is the Na Pali Coast. This is the part of the island all helicopter tours gravitate to as the most special part of each tour. The great thing about the Sunshine Helicopters location is that it is located in Princeville just a stones through away from the Na Pali Coastline. This means that almost as soon as you are in the air you are already at your ultimate destination. ......Not to be out-done by his other spectacular locations the Big Island of Hawaii presents an opportunity for spectacular viewing of the live volcano from the departure point in Waikoloa which is within a 45 minute drive from where 90% of the visitors vacationing on the Big Island will be staying. Of all the helicopter companies in Hawaii, Sunshine alone offers 'first class' seating which entitles purchasers the right to sit in the two seats in the very front of the aircraft.
