Experience Makes the Difference. Air Maui pilots are experienced professionals with thousands of hours of flight time, and are trained to the demanding standards of Steve Egger, Air Maui's owner and Chief Pilot.
Being the best is just the first step; Air Maui pilots must also excel at being your personal guide, entertaining and informing you about Maui's history, geology, flora and fauna as you soar above fantastic landscapes.
Quality and Safety Make a BIG Difference! In aviation, quality and safety are paramount. At Air Maui, the proof is in their record: over ten years of perfect safety. That's not luck - it's the combined commitment of professional pilots and top-notch aircraft maintenance personnel.
At each day's end, an entirely new crew takes charge of the aircraft. Air Maui's FAA-certified and factory-trained mechanics inspect and maintain their helicopters to ensure that every component, every system, meets the highest standards of safety and quality. Air Maui's standards are simple: "If it's not perfect, it doesn't fly."
