It was my wife and I's first flight lesson and it was a great experience. Armin was friendly and very patient. Learning the basics of handling a glider was exciting and hope to learn more in the future. The views were a real treat as well. Glad we had the opportunity to do this!

My husband and I each spent an hour doing the introductory flight. It was spectacular! We flew through clouds, over crystal blue ocean, passed a waterfall, and then glided with the engine off! Armin, the pilot, was warm and witty. He taught us some basic maneuvers via a two way radio in the helmets. We were also able to purchase... More

First, when you first meet Armin, you will know immediately that you are in good hands! He has a LOT of experience, his warm welcome and smile will put any nerves you might have immediately at ease. To fly above Hana and to see such detail and beauty of Hawaii and her coastline is simply incredible. Armin will be explaining... More

I booked the 45 minute flight lesson, but I recommend booking for the whole hour if you can. This was an amazing experience, and it's not one that you can find at just any place. I've been to Maui several times and have done almost every local and touristy thing there is to do. This experience ranks at the top.... More

I booked the 45 minute intro flight and had a blast. Armin is a very experience pilot and I took over the controls just after a few minutes. Bouncing around the sky above Hana's coastline is just stunning.

I booked the 30 minute flight with Armin, and my only regret is that I wish I booked the longer flight. It was absolutely beautiful and stunning. The coast, the mountain, the waterfall - all look amazing from the sky. Armin is fun, personable, and funny. He is easygoing, easy to talk to, and he makes you feel comfortable doing... More

Camping out in Hana and then flying with Armin Engert in timeless Hana was the most defining moment of my life. I went on a solo trip to Maui to do some soul searching. Never had I imagined that would I fall in love with aviation and especially flying in a trike! The challenge and feeling of flying is what... More

50th BDay present for my wife Said it was the highlight of the trip and I agree. Armand is very knowledgeable and safe. Tons of instruction as we were able to guide the glider at numerous points during the flight. Armand's knowledge of the island and many years of flying experience gives you the confidence you need to think about... More

This hands down was the best learning experience I have ever had. What a wonderful way to learn a new skill while seeing the most beautiful views. Amin is a great teacher and is most enjoyable to spend time with. This is a must do! You will not regret it. Call in advance.

The flight with Armin was an amazing experience. I've visited Maui and Hana numerous times and the view from the glider was unbelievable, much more enjoyable and relaxing than a helicopter. Also had a great learning experience as Armin shows you how to control the glider. He's a great teacher and makes sure you have a really fun experience. Some... More
