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

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
