Can we sit in the front seat of the helicopter?

Jun 16, 2018 | General Information

My girlfriend and I would like to do the helicopter tour on Kauai but would like to be seated in the front seat. Is it first come first serve?


There are only two helicopter companies at this writing (Nov 2011) that offer a possibility of a guarantee of sitting in the front seat. Both Sunshine Helicopters and Safari Helicopters offer an opportunity to sit in the front seat for what they refer to as a first class ticket. You are charged more for the seat but you will sit in the front of the helicopter. Most helicopter companies do not offer this option but essentially seat you depending upon your weight in comparison to the other passengers on the helicopter.
