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

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
