Maverick Helicopters hosted its first official flight at its new location on Maui on Friday, April 10, company executives announced.

Passengers David Warr from Columbia, South Carolina and Leoni Merole and John Wright from Cambridge, Massachusetts, were the first to experience the company’s new Maui air tours.

Pilot Brad Blucher led the inaugural Maui flight aboard an EC130 ECO-Star helicopter that can seat up to seven guests.

On the mainland, the company offers tours out of Las Vegas, Henderson, and the south and west rim of the Grand Canyon.
