Maui 45 Min Hana/Crater - Sunshine Helicopter
One of the most well known and respected helicopter tour companies in Hawaii is Sunshine Helicopters. Ross Scott is the company's founder and owner and his days in the helicopter business have their roots in the Vietnam War where Ross was a helicopter gunship pilot. After the war he brought his considerable aviation knowledge back with him to Alaska where he managed an aviation company with over 80 aircraft. Once again bridging his knowledge, he made the leap to Hawaii where decades ago he opened Sunshine Helicopters. His aircraft at Sunshine Helicopters consist of both the A-Star and the more advanced FX-Star helicopters which are referred to at Sunshine as 'Whisper Stars'.
