Owners - Island Helicopters Kauai, Inc.

Curt and Bonnie Lofstedt, owners and operators of Island Helicopters Kauai, Inc., are long-time island residents with a home in the town of Kalaheo. Curt has been flying tours of Kauai for over 40 years and still “loves every minute of it”. He is one of the State’s highest flight time helicopter pilots with nearly 30,000 hours. His experience dates back to high school, receiving his pilots’ license even before his drivers’ license. After he attended college in Oregon, Curt flew helicopters in Vietnam, then for the construction of the Alaska Pipeline, and finally on to Hawaii for tours. While attending college at the University of California, Berkeley, Bonnie spent her summer vacations working as a kids’ camp counselor at Kahili Mountain Park on Kauai. Bonnie would frequently hike the Nā Pali Coast or Waimea Canyon with her campers and at the end of the day, a chartered helicopter (Curt) would land and fly Bonnie and the campers back to camp. After dating a couple years, Curt proposed to Bonnie on a beach at sunset. And now, 35+ years and three children later, they continue to live and work on the island of Kauai and enjoy spending time with their three future pilots (grandsons).
