Know your aircraft before you book any tour

Featuring state-of-the-art, Eco-Star Helicopters. Our aircraft incorporate all the latest in cutting-edge technologies, materials, systems and avionics, and offer incomparable passenger comfort and fantastic sweeping views.



The introduction of the incredible new Eco-Star is the dawn of a new era in helicopter touring. Since the late 1980s,the American Eurocopter A-Star has been the tour helicopter of choice for professional tour operations worldwide. In Hawaii it is the industry standard—favored by all the top helicopter tour companies for its open cabin design that affords a 180º sweeping view for each passenger. This feature has been further enhanced in the revolutionary new American Eurocopter Eco-Star—the first touring helicopter of the 21st Century.


Tail rotators

  • Eco-Star’s 23% increase in cabin space over the A-Star affords significantly greater personal space for guests, along with improved visibility with over 65 square feet of glass for 180 degree unobstructed views.
  • Eco-Star features superior comfort; individual seats for every passenger afford the kind of shoulder room and personal space found in airline “First Class” seating.
  • Eco-Star features raised rear seating and wrap-around glass cockpit, for significantly improved visibility from every seat.
  • Eco-Star: First helicopter specifically designed for touring, utilizing the latest aircraft and avionics technologies.
  • Eco-Star: high-tech, enclosed “Fenestron,” or “Fan in Fin,” replaces A-Star’s conventional tail rotor. Fenestron is: Safer, Quieter and More efficient—using 25% less engine horsepower, which can now be utilized by the main rotorsystem.
  • Eco-Star’s state-of-the-art fuel control automatically optimizes main rotor speed for quietest operations and instant power response. Achieved with a “Full Authority Digital Electronic Control” (FADEC), utilizing  dual electronic channels with one electrical backup channel and a third hydro-mechanical backup control.
  • Eco-Star’s engine uses latest “Grown Crystal” technology for turbine blades—increasing power, heat tolerance and fuel efficiency. This, along with the FADEC, is the same technology used in state-of-the-art airline engines such those on the leading-edge Boeing 777.
  • Eco-Star features dual hydraulic systems.
  • Eco-Star cost is over $2 million – approximately 30% more than a new A-Star.
