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

Armin is the sweetest guy. I am the most risk adverse person and rarely do anything adventurous but this was hands down the best vacation experience I've had in all my 29 years! If Armin decides he wants to go into business as a cognitive behavioral therapist he will have much success! Maybe 15 mins into the lesson Armin realizes... More

This was def a highlight of my trip! After driving the long road to Hana this was an exceptional way to see a birds eye view! One cool thing I was not anticipating was that you actually get a certificate for your flying time which can be put towards getting a license. To qualify for a license all you need... More

We were lucky enough to experience this magic. Armin is a wonderful human and extremely passionate about this activity. He is very safety cautious. This is worth your time, money and energy to do. Yes, it is Hana but if you are headed that way anyway why not try it. I can not speak highly enough about this experience and... More

After living on Maui for 10 years there aren't many activities I haven't tried… but private hang gliding instruction is one that I some how missed over the years. Armin is a champion instructor! He went over some basics on land and then had us up in the air flying in no time. It was such an amazing experience! I've... More

Driving the road to Hana is fun, but flying along the coast is spectacular. I fly small single engine planes, but this is like a motorcycle in the sky. Breeze in your face and unobstructed views below. The hour flew by and Armin was a great instructor. Highly recommend this unique opportunity, it truly is a breathtaking view.

My teenage daughters and myself took the introductory lesson with Armin and it was amazing! He is a knowledgeable, wonderful instructor and fun guy! The road to Hana is overwhelming to experience from the ground, but, from the air... you get a bird's eye view! Rainforest, waterfalls, shoreline... Peaceful, heavenly, awesome experience. My daughters also loved it. I thought it... More

This was an AWESOME experience. To soar free like a bird and see some gorgeous scenery was incredible. To be able to learn to fly it during my one hour lesson was a life long dream. Haven't you always dreamt of flying free with the breeze in your face and a view in every direction? Do it. I will again... More
