this is an adventure of a lifetime! and yet it's completely safe, maybe even safer than flying on a commercial flight. Armin is a real pro. since i have prior hanggliding experience, he had me steering soon after takeoff, giving me flying tips along the way. i told him i have one fear: the fear of becoming addicted to trikes....

Overall - I have to say this was hands down the best attraction I did in Maui/Hana. My wife booked this attraction based on a recommendation in the "Maui Revealed" book. I haven't read any reviews or seen pictures of the attraction so I was a little hesitant to try it out as I thought we will be jumping off... More

This is a MUST DO!!! My grandpa and grandma did this a few years back and INSISTED I get booked in my visit to Hana. Both my boyfriend and I went for our own flight lessons with Armin and could not have been more pleased. First off, Armin is a great guy. His "office" is one that people can only... More

Where do I even begin - I'll start with Armin. He's an amazing guy - laid-back, professional, informative, and passionate about flying. He made sure to provide us with all of the directions and details far in advance. When we arrived, he provided my husband and I with all of the instruction necessary to start our hang gliding flight lesson.... More

What an absolute blast. There is no better way to see the southern end of the island than being a few thousand feet up in this ultra-lite. Go for the hour, once you're up, you won't want to come back down. And get the pictures too, just hope your batteries last longer than mine did! Armin is a great guide/instructor... More

My wife and I first flew with Armin more than 22 years ago. We did our first tandem hanggliding flight with him from the top of Haleakala, (which was awesome) and he gave me my first lesson on a "trike" about 20 years ago. He is an incredible pilot and instructor, and just a LOT of fun to be around.... More

We found Armin's Hang Gliding Maui in Andrew Doughty's "Maui Revealed" guidebook - my husband took one look at the full page photo of Armin in his powered hang glider and said, "I want to do THAT!" I took a 30 minute flight and my husband a 45 minute flight. That hour and a half was worth every last penny... More

It was the time of my life. Armin was so friendly when he greeted us, it made us feel right at home. His instruction before we went up was very direct and he answered all our questions. The flight for my husband who gets motion sickness was smooth as glass and he was so excited to fly the glider. My... More

This was the most exhilarating experience of my life! I took the 45 minute lesson with Armin and he taught me how to fly the hang glider…whoa. I was like a kid at Disneyland for the first time. I had the biggest smile on my face for hours after. Armin was so much fun and I felt totally comfortable and... More

This is something we looked in to doing the first time we went to Maui, but there were so many other things to do on Maui we skipped it. Well we did it this time, and it was fantastic! We each took a 45 minute lesson and every minute was just amazing! Armin took the time on the ground to... More
