I flew with Preston around the entire island of Kauai and saying it was epic would be an understatement ;p The beauty is pure and unreal from up in the air. I felt totally at ease the entire time due to Preston's immense knowledge and skill which he also passed some onto me! I was up there for 70 minutes... More

My airplane experience with Kauai By Air and Captain Preston Brandt was really spectacular. It was my first time flying in a small plane so I was a bit nervous. Preston's relaxed and professional manner eased my fears very quickly, and before I knew it, I was engrossed in the magnificence of one of the most beautiful places on the... More

We had such a stunning flight with Preston yesterday! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Kauai from above looks like Garden Eden. Innumerable wild valleys, countless waterfalls, dramatic cliffs and coastlines left me speechless!! Preston is probably the best pilot you can have. I felt very safe with him and he his a very pleasant person to be around. He... More

I've always had the urge to fly, but always lacked the time and money. What a great way to try it out--flying over some of the most spectacular scenery in the world! We did two flights so both myself and my wife could fly the plane and it was still cheaper than taking a helicopter tour. Highly recommended for first... More

This time, we flew over Kauai in a bi-plane instead of a helicopter because we got to fly higher and see not only the Na Pali coast, but we also flew over the Waimea Canyon and along the south western coast where it is almost impossible to drive. It was spectacular!

Four of us took an air tour of Kauai. Our pilot, Kevin, was awesome. His knowledge and experience was impressive. The Cessna plane was a perfect option for all of us. Great customer service.

I took my boyfriend for a flight with Preston when we were in Kauai last month for his bday and we had the most incredible time! Right off the bat Preston gave off great vibes- he's super warm and personable. He proceeded to give us the most thorough island tour from the sky, with really interesting insight into what we...

Fantastic experience with the pilot and staff. 1/2 the cost of helicopter flights with quieter and smoother travel. Loved every minute of the narration the pilot provided.

Mahalo to flight instructor Preston Brandt for the beautiful flight around our lovely island. I never flew in a small plane before but loved the smoothness of the trip and the ability to really see the landscape at relaxing pace.

Preston did an amazing job making me feel comfortable while flying with him. He gave me the choice of actually flying the plane or not. I decided to fly the plane (at times) and this experience meant the world to me! Preston is a very relaxed, VERY SKILLED, pilot. I have never flown with such a natural pilot! I recommend... More
