At Goldwings, we believe quantifiable transformation begins from the inside. Our company Network Leadership model, Hawaiian values practice, Corporate Culture training, and Value proposition drive our “how and why”. Each interaction we share with a customer or partner is with aloha and guided with pono intentions. We believe a healthy organization goes beyond the bottom line. It includes enriching the lives of each of our employees, while elevating our communities. It is with Hawaiian values that we conduct the art of business to deliver the art of the possible, and these values guide our commitment to a sustainable Hawaiʻi for all.Our team actively supports impactful community programs, including the YWCA Enterprising Women of Color Business Center and the University of Hawai‘i Family Business Center, as well as youth coaching, mentorship, alumni and veterans’ groups.
Our core community programs include:
Olomana School: Goldwings serves as a Community Partner and has been instrumental in helping create a roadmap for this Kailua alternative-education intermediate and high school to address vulnerabilities and needs to best serve students. Most recently, we partnered with the Hawaii Foodbank to create a successful meal program. As many as 50 five-pound bags of nonperishable food items have been distributed to students each week, as well as snacks. Goldwings has also been an active supporter of workforce development activities, partnerships and speaking opportunities to enhance the school’s curriculum around trade and aviation careers.
Kaulele Aviation Work-Study Program: Goldwings launched its Kaulele (to take flight) work-study program in 2021 to provide opportunities for students interested in aviation careers. Students can learn from Goldwings mentors as they study for their pilot’s license or other aviation career.
This program offers flexible hours at Goldwings’ south ramp location alongside the aviation team, with more than 100 years combined aviation experience.
Paisley Young, a graduate of St. Andrew’s Priory, started the Goldwings work-study program in 2022 and is enrolled in the Aeronautics Maintenance Technology (AERO) program at Honolulu Community College. Born and raised in Hawaii, Paisley developed a passion for hands-on projects by working on cars with her family.
Hawai’i Executive Coalition Climate Coalition Pledge: Goldwings has joined other Hawai‘i businesses and organizations in signing the Hawai‘i Executive Collaborative Climate Coalition Pledge. This pledge demonstrates an ongoing commitment to meaningful climate and resiliency action. We commit to take actions within our organization to reduce emissions and increase our resiliency, and to leverage our collective capacities to support an equitable transition to a climate resilient economy, society, and environment for all Hawaiʻi’s people.
