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

This was the coolest and funnest thing I have ever done. Armin is hilarious and so enjoyable. He's a professional flier- been doing it for over 25 years. You learn how to move the hang glider which is a really simple thing to learn. We were 2,500 feet in the air over the water and saw 3 whales!! You feel... More

It was really pleasant and fun experience starting from last minute booking up to flight experience. Definitely recommended. But book in advance especially during high season.

Armin is hilarious! I did this activity to get over my fear of flying... and it worked! Armin taught me about flight, took me up into the clouds, and even let me control the hanglider...all while viewing beautiful Maui! He even let me attach my gopro to the wing for some awesome vids! It was very safe and fun. He... More

this is an adventure of a lifetime! and yet it's completely safe, maybe even safer than flying on a commercial flight. Armin is a real pro. since i have prior hanggliding experience, he had me steering soon after takeoff, giving me flying tips along the way. i told him i have one fear: the fear of becoming addicted to trikes....

Overall - I have to say this was hands down the best attraction I did in Maui/Hana. My wife booked this attraction based on a recommendation in the "Maui Revealed" book. I haven't read any reviews or seen pictures of the attraction so I was a little hesitant to try it out as I thought we will be jumping off... More

This is a MUST DO!!! My grandpa and grandma did this a few years back and INSISTED I get booked in my visit to Hana. Both my boyfriend and I went for our own flight lessons with Armin and could not have been more pleased. First off, Armin is a great guy. His "office" is one that people can only... More

Where do I even begin - I'll start with Armin. He's an amazing guy - laid-back, professional, informative, and passionate about flying. He made sure to provide us with all of the directions and details far in advance. When we arrived, he provided my husband and I with all of the instruction necessary to start our hang gliding flight lesson.... More
