Hawaii, aptly named the Big Island, combines a diversity of ecosystems all beautifully displayed by air. East side helicopter tours depart daily from the Hilo airport. They offer the best tours for the budget minded as they are in close proximity to the most desired waterfall and volcano sites. Hapuna based air tours are conveniently located to those staying on the north west side of Hawaii. A wonderful view of the Kohala and Hamakua coast are a short flight, or go for distance through the Kohala mountains and check out what makes this island uniquely spectacular: flowing lava fields. If your home base is the liveliest spot on the island, flying adventures depart from the Kona airport that include valley landing experiences. Take in Hawaii by air and capture it on film with a birds eye view.
