FAMILY OWNED COMPANY
A family-owned company, Safari Helicopters was founded in 1987 by Preston Myers; retired full commander in the U.S. Navy Reserve. Preston has built his company and reputation on the sound principles of safety, professionalism and innovation-always striving to offer the latest in state-of-the-art equipment to assure passengers of an unsurpassable and unforgettable helicopter "safari."
ALWAYS AN INNOVATOR
Safari Helicopters was the first tour operator in the state to fly
helicopter tours in air-conditioned B2 model ASTAR's, dubbed the "Cadillac of sightseeing helicopters." Safari was also the first in Hawaii to offer two-way communication between passengers and pilots and the first and ONLY company on Kauai to install and operate a FAA-approved multiple camera video system to record passenger's actual tour and live narration. Safari is the first company to fly with new view panel, dubbed the "Safari Skylight". The innovation is just one more feature that makes the ASTAR B2-7 aircraft superior to other ASTARs. The B2-7 offers a higher performance engine, the capacity to carry more weight, and has a higher service ceiling of 20,000 feet.
Safari's ASTAR helicopters seat everyone facing forward, with no physical obstructions blocking the passenger's 180-degree view. Safari's $1.3 million "super" ASTAR 350 B2-7 features a left side pilot seat, featuring more passenger leg room, higher visibility with large side "picture windows," and "Safari Skylight" window and innovation providing front and back seat passengers a tremendous vertical overhead view.
