If you're looking for a truly unique experience, take a glider ride with Hans. I highly recommend the experience not only because of the epic views of Hana (and Maui) that I experienced, but almost more importantly because of Hand himself. My flight was scheduled for 9am. When I arrived around 830, Hans was checking the weather on his laptop.... More

This is an amazing way to see the beauty of Hana and the vast scale of Haleakala Crater. Hans circled over waterfalls and particularly beautiful parts of the coastline so I could get the best pictures, and when we finally reached the crater and he turned off the engine, it was a breathtaking experience to float down over the clouds.

I had to be talked into going in the glider plane by my boyfriend, but am so glad I did! Hans was great, he took it easy on me since I was a little afraid and he showed me the best Hana has to offer from above. It was amazing to see the Hana coast from the glider, the way... More

Don't be fooled by the weather. If there is one thing you do in Hana, it's to contact Hans and have him take you up in his motorized glider to view the Haleakala Crater. The weather was overcast and I was completely skeptical that I would see anything, but true to his word, when we reached the crater rim at... More

I set up and confirmed two powered hang gliding reservations with Hans several weeks before making my trip to Maui. When I called to re-confirm the reservations the night before the flights, though, Hans told me that the glider had broken a couple of weeks ago. Because of this, I wasn't able to fly. Due to the late notice, I... More

This is the way to see the east side. Hans is an excellent pilot with many moons of experience. Flying over the crater was incredible and this is the only way you can do it.

My wife and I have been to Maui 5 times in the last 20 years and have always driven the road to Hana. Yeah waterfalls, streams, rainbows abound and of course the drive is always worth it.... even on the other side. This time I noticed the sign at the Hana airport about glider rides. What was this all about,... More

My better-half and I each did the 1 hour flight over the crater, and the flights were well worth the price! Hans is, as other reviews have mentioned, very professional and just a very likeable guy. There is so much of the Hana area to see from the air, and Hans makes a very knowledgeable tour guide. If you want,... More

My wife and I were staying in Hana for 4 nights and on day two we decided to wander over to the Hana airport to see what this glider flight through the Haleakala crater was all about. When we got there, Hans Pieters walked over to where we were standing and gave us a quick run down of the tour.... More

My wife and I took a trip to Maui for my 30th birthday, and spend a few days in Hana (Nahiku area). My wife bought me a glider trip with Hans for my birthday, and it was a wonderful experience. Hans is a great pilot/tour guide, and was very accommodating. The weather wasn't ideal the day we went, and he... More
