Go Fly Maui, LLC is owned and operated by Nick and Magen Moran. Founded on a passion for aviation, a love for Maui and a desire to share the exciting world of helicopters with island residents and visitors, they bring a truly unique adventure and opportunity to learn to fly in Maui.
Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, Nick has always loved aviation. He earned his fixed wing Private Pilot License at age 17. As an adult, after an introductory helicopter flight, Nick was hooked and decided to pursue the rest of his training in choppers! As a Helicopter Pilot he completed his Commercial License, Instrument Rating and CFI and CFII Licenses. Shortly after completing his ratings he and his wife Magen moved to Maui, Hawaii, seeking a new adventure in a warmer climate.
Nick’s enthusiasm for teaching and his passion for flying catapulted him to start Go Fly Maui, LLC.
“I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to fly with such beautiful surroundings and with great people on the island of Maui. Being a helicopter pilot has a distinct set of challenges and I wouldn’t be where I am with the support of my wife Magen, and the amazing pilot mentors and friends that I have met along the way.”
