Can fixed wing aircraft handle heavier passengers?


I weigh about 300 lbs and have been turned away by the helicopter companies for a flight around Kauai because my weight is in excess of the allowed limits. I was referred to you regarding a fixed-wing flight because I was told that you might be able to take me. Is that true?

Answer

Yes it is true. The per person weight limit on some of our fixed-wing tour aircraft on Kauai is generally about 350 lbs. Fixed wing airplanes are generally not as sensitive to weight issues as helicopters are. We'd be delighted to take you and your airplane flight will be every bit as rewarding, and the pricing will be better as well.

Hawaii air tours are fundamentally divided into two categories: Hawaii airplane tours, and helicopter tours. Because these two categories of aircraft are inexorably lumped together it is important to draw a comparison between the two because people always want a contrast to determine which might provide a better Hawaii air flight for them.
