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

My present to my husband’s birthday was a one hour flight with Armin. When I called for the booking I talked to Karin, who was so kind and accommodating to answer all of our questions and concerns. I got to watch the two getting ready for their instructional flight and off they went. Armin gave my husband an experience he... More

In an attempt to make sure our plans went off without a hitch, we made our reservations for this excursion over three months in advance, and this was the only reason we had any desire to make the four-hour drive each way to Hana and back. However, now that we also have our hotel reservations, we get a call from... More

On Monday, 2/17/14, a couple golfers and I took the day to drive the road but, more importantly for us, get to Hang Gliding Maui. Armin took us up for a beautiful, peaceful flight into the mountains and out over the sea. As a training flight, we each got to take controls for a little while. Great, great fun. Armin... More

Let me start by saying that Armin is a top notch instructor and a joy to be around. I booked this training session for my wife and I for our first anniversary and I don't think we had a more memorable experience while we were in Maui. It was an expensive excursion for us but NOTHING in Maui is cheap.... More

We were driving on the highway and happened to see a hang glider in the air, so we decided to Google it and try it out. Armin was very friendly and booked us an appointment for the next day, which worked out since we already planned on touring the Road to Hana. The location wasn't difficult to find with the... More

Armin is very personable and interested in teaching you about powered hang gliding. The day I went was a little windy and still had morning haze but the trip was still well worth it. Fantastic views and opportunity to see things you can only see from the air. Unless you want to travel the Hana Highway twice, you should schedule... More

Armin is a master. One of the world's finest, experienced hang gliding instructors, Armin is well-respected and trusted by hang glider pilots around the world (myself & my hubby included). Feel confident in his expertise. Fly. Enjoy this unforgettable experience with amazingly beautiful aerial views. You will often dream of this flight throughout your lifetime.
