The airplane in an incredibly comfortable flying machine. Views were amazing and all the stops were awesome. Lawrence went out of his way to make this flight possible. He is a great navigator, historian and flight instructor. Best excursion I took while in Hawaii.

I had a great time on my first flight. Laurence is a very good teacher, and I never felt like I was over my head or in danger. Flight itself was incredibly scenic.
