On Tuesday, the NTSB issued a full dozen safety recommendations (A-07-18 to -29) to the FAA directed at air-tour operations, most of them specifically addressing such operations in Hawaii.

The general recommendations for all commercial air-tour operations include the requirement that all helicopters flying tours over water (regardless of the length of time) be amphibious or equipped with fixed or inflatable floats.
