Blue Hawaiian Helicopters

To commemorate World Helicopter Day, Blue Hawaiian Helicopters is offering guests a 15% discount on all helicopter tours that occur on Sunday, Aug. 19, 2018.

This special offer is valid for any helicopter tours that day on Maui, Oʻahu, Kauaʻi and Island of Hawaiʻi (Big Island). A portion of the proceeds from the special promotion will benefit Hawaiʻi’s Make-A-Wish Foundation.

“We join the helicopter industry across the globe in celebrating this special time,” said Gregg Lundberg, president of Blue Hawaiian Helicopters, “and this is our way of promoting awareness while showing appreciation for the continued support of our community.”

World Helicopter Day, celebrated on the third Sunday of August each year, aims to raise awareness about the contributions that helicopters make to society and to celebrate the diverse range of people that design, fly, and support them.

Regarded as one of the world’s greatest engineering innovations, helicopters assist with rescues, disaster relief, transportation, firefighting, medical transfers, power line maintenance, tourism, agriculture, and more.


The industry employs more than 500,000 people and there are an estimated 56,200 helicopters worldwide.


Blue Hawaiian Helicopter tours, as well as private charters, run at varying times throughout the day on all four major Hawaiian Islands.

Guests are asked to mention World Helicopter Day when booking to enjoy the special promotional discount.
