I've put off doing this tour for a few years. Should have done it sooner. My wife took the helicopter tour a few years ago and I didn't go, my daughter went with. The airplane tour is about half the price and everyone gets a window seat.
Smooth ride great views, we loved it. My wife liked it more than the helicopter tour. I got my wife a GoPro for her birthday and they had a mount on the plane for it. It was out on the wing and they set it up to take a picture, I think every 10 seconds. She got over 400 pictures and it was great.
We booked this right through the Pono Kai so it couldn't be easier.
We're returning in February so we decided we're taking a whale watching boat tour. Plus my wife wants to take the open cockpit flight AirVenture has.
