Unlike most helicopter tours that cut across the saddle of the island to get to the volcano, a fi xed- wing plane has enough fuel to COVER ALL 266 MILES OF COASTLINE, including the often-ignored southern end of the island.
Tours are conducted in planes with various seating capacities, but all seats have a window, including the seat next to the pilot.
