Big Island Air – Twilight / Sunset Flight

Looking to see the sights from the sky without being in a helicopter? Join Big Island Air in a plane instead featuring big seats with plenty of room and every seat being a window seat!

Departing from Kona International Airport, this twilight flight heads out over Kilauea Volcano. The dusk time allows for better viewing of any current lava flows (they may or may not be happening the day of your tour). Keep an eye out for any glow! Also fly over the lush green Hamakua Coast and rainforests that starkly contrasts the lava landscapes.

Tour Highlights:

  • Kilauea volcano's fiery eruption at sunset
  • Five volcanoes
  • Towering waterfalls
  • Hundreds of miles of beautiful coastline
  • Fully-narrated tour, including passenger headsets 

The Aircraft:

  • Cessna 208 Jet-Prop Caravan
  • Aircraft was originally configured for 13 passengers, but Big Island Air has adopted a 9-passenger configuration to ensure everyone has their own window for viewing as well as ample room
  • Every seat is a window seat
  • Aircraft is air-conditioned for your comfort
  • BIG SEATS with lots of leg room
  • High wing aircraft for excellent viewing

Big Island Air has the most experienced flight crew in the state of Hawaii. Their pilots are trained at the prestigious Flight Safety International School, in addition to their already impressive and extensive flight histories, which include commercial, military and airline transport pilot ratings. Big Island Air's Director of Operations and the Chief Pilot alone have more than 22,000 hours of flight time between them.
