Welcome to Mauna Loa Helicopters!
Welcome to Mauna Loa Helicopters! We are located in pristine Hawaii surrounded by one of the most ideal and dynamic training environments on the planet. For flight training Hawaii offers: high altitude and off shore operations, and best of all, flying weather nearly 365 days a year. With our 20 years of experience offering flight training we believe the following place us in the top tier of flight instruction:
Federal Financial Aid
Mauna Loa Helicopters is the only helicopter school in the country independently approved for Federal Financial Aid (may be available for those who qualify). The Parent Plus loan is available to cover up to the entire cost of training plus living expenses for those who qualify.
Accreditation by ACCSC
Mauna Loa Helicopters Professional Private Pilot Program is accredited by the ACCSC. Being one of the few accredited flight schools in the country means that Mauna Loa Helicopters is held to a higher standard.
Because of this you can feel confident in your choice to enroll in Mauna Loa Helicopters.
