Project: Build a new modern website for Mauna Loa Helicopter School in Hawaii. Update their previous design scheme to feel more dynamic, open, interactive and to capture the adventure of a flight school in one of the world’s most diverse and beautiful climates.
This was our fifth website for the Mauna Loa Helicopters family of businesses in Hawaii. Their industry requires them to stay updated and modern, and they like to get a full website revamp every few years. In this case, we switched their color scheme to make a lot more use of white space, used dynamic loading features to make the snapshots fade in from the sides and used a few parallax backgrounds with glorious photos of Hawaii.
We also included a new secure student portal so that students can log-in to the website to get access to pdfs of textbooks and helicopter manuals. The old site had a password protected section, but this method is more streamlined and allows them to specifically tailor access to current and former students.
