In the second quarter of this year, Maverick Helicopters plans to open an operation in Hawaii. The operator said this would be the sixth permanent location for its tourism business.

“Maverick Helicopters is thrilled to offer our customers an unforgettable experience on the Garden Isle,” said Maverick’s Bryan Kroten. “With most of Kauai’s striking geographic marvels inaccessible by foot or road, helicopter travel provides the best way to see the island’s natural beauty.”

The new base is located on Hawaii’s northernmost and oldest island, Kauai. Flights would depart daily from Maverick’s facility at Port Allen Airport.

A division of Maverick Aviation Group, Maverick Helicopters is based out of Las Vegas. That city is set to host 2018’s installment of Helicopter Association International’s Heli-Expo.

While Maverick told R&WI it was looking forward to roaming the show floor and meeting with vendors, one thing it did not have on its Heli-Expo list is finding out more information on ADS-B Out. Check out the upcoming February/March issue of R&WI to find out how Maverick is complying to the FAA’s 2020 mandate with all 47 of its helicopters.
