Jack Harter Helicopters
“We invite you to escape the ordinary; to leave the byways of man and immerse yourself in the wilderness grandeur of the Garden Isle. Only by exploring its natural wonders can you truly capture the meaning of this glorious island.” – Jack and Bev Harter
Our helicopters are equipped with two-way intercom systems, which allow our pilots to easily converse with their passengers. We do not play prerecorded narratives during our flights. We encourage our passengers to pick up the microphone and talk with their pilot during the flight. This interaction gives the pilots some insight into their passengers’ interests and allows the narration to be tailored to each group. Our pilots’ narrations receive high marks from our passengers and the authors of guidebooks such as The Kauai Underground Guide and The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook. Our natural history format and the smooth flying skills of our pilots make scenic tours with Jack Harter Helicopters memories that last a lifetime!
When selecting the aircraft to offer helicopter flights over what is certainly one of the most scenic islands in the world, we looked at two main criteria: safety and features. After researching all of the helicopters available, we have decided to offer tours in the six-passenger Eurocopter AStar and the four-passenger Hughes 500. We think that these helicopters allow Jack Harter Helicopters to provide tours and charter flights that will meet the expectations and safety requirements of all of our passengers.
The large floor-to-ceiling windows on our AStar provide our passengers with unobstructed panoramic views of Kauai’s scenic beauty. Every seat in this helicopter has a great view.
If you are looking for a little more excitement during your helicopter tour, you may want to consider a doors-off tour in our Hughes 500s. Imagine yourself zooming along with the wind in your hair as you descend through jungle valleys and smoothly pass through rugged canyons.
Whichever tour you choose you’ll walk away with an amazing, unforgettable experience of a lifetime. Creating safety and quality for over 50 years, the originator of helicopter tours on Kauai. Call today and book your enchanted tour!
