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

It's true these reviews almost seem over-the-top, but I'll add yet another opinion that says this is the most fun thing we did on Maui last week--these reviews are absolutely legit! My wife and I both took an hour each on the powered hang glider. Armin greets you by name when you walk up to his hanger at the little... More

I can't say enough good things about this experience. Armin is a wonderful pilot and a fun person. The craft itself is both easy to fly and feels secure riding in. My flight consisted of seeing beaches, waterfalls, and flying through clouds. It was the highlight of my Maui vacation and would do it again in a heartbeat. There is... More

I had the best time taking a one hour lesson from Armin. He's a great teacher, and a very funny guy. If you're considering taking a lesson do it here in Hana with Armin. You'll never get another chance to cruise over Hana in a convertible. I can't wait to do it again. Literally puts your head in the clouds.

Armin is a fantastic instructor and hang gliding with his instruction was the highlight of my trip. I have done just about everything there is to do on Maui over the years but this one I will do again and again. Thanks Armin! Michelle

I was hesitant about this for the cost and because I'm prone to seasickness, but as others have written, it is worth every penny and Armin makes it smooth as silk -- calmer than the airline flight from Honolulu. First read about it in the Discover Maui guide book, and after seeing the web site and reviews on sites like... More

Armin’s Review My fiancée and I had an awesome experience with Hang Gliding Maui in July of 2014. We each did the 30 minute flight. Armin was a fantastic instructor and a really great guy – it was a blast just to talk to him and hear a bunch of his stories and life experiences. With all of Armin’s experience... More

This trip was totally worth every penny. Getting the photos are also a must, how else do you keep a record of this kind of experience. It's you, Armin, and the sky. I would highly suggest going for the full hour as the whole thing felt like it was only 20 minutes of air time. Time simply flew by.

After realizing we didn't have enough time in our itinerary to see Haleakala, we were a little sad we might be missing out on a big attraction. So I surprised the boyfriend with a hang gliding trip over the crater for our anniversary, and it was absolutely amazing. Its probably the best way to see Haleakala!! Armin makes you feel... More

I was very reluctant to do this but my wife insisted and of course I went for it. Boy, am I glad I did. It was simply incredible! We saw so many waterfalls, amazing beaches and views that would normally be impossible. Armin is the greatest instructor and nicest guy. He taught me many things about flying that I did... More
