Tours in Hawaii


Recommended Posts

What are the goods and bad with the tour companies in Hawaii? There are a few operators.


Who are the best/worst to work for? Blue Hawaiian seems to be the biggest which doesn't always mean it's the best.


How is the pay? I see on some websites that they offer some benefits.


What are the work schedules like?


Is there a typical hiring season? What is the busy season? I'd guess the winter but that's just a guess.


Do they all require 2500 hours?


Any other info from other's experience would be great too.


If some one had 2500 hours with 1000+ turbine time but no eurocopter time are any of the EC operators willing to transition you?


Just curious for the future. It's sounds like it'd be a fun job for awhile. I've heard stories about locals not liking others coming in but that's the same in any town. I know it's expensive and you're stuck on an island. I'm just curious about the operators.

My impression is that it helpful if you already have some time flying there if you want a job there. Hawaii, like Alaska, can be pretty different from the rest of the country when it comes to weather especially. Just an impression though - I haven't had the good fortune to go there (yet).

I just wrote a one page paper response and then deleted it. I feel a lot better now that I vented all of that...


Simply do yourself a favor and stay out of Hawaii. Its the last place you want to be a pilot for many reasons.
