With an instructor along, you can take the controls and soar white sandy beaches and blue waters. Our two powered hang gliders are one of the best ways to see O'ahu's north shore, while learning a bit about flying at the same time. Each student leaves with a certificate showing instruction received that applies towards FAA Sport Pilot certificate. « less

A must do adventure if you are in Oahu! Totally recommended, i've done it twice and would definitely do it several more times! Denisse and Tom are awesome teachers and will make of the flight and unforgettable experience. You will learn a lot and see the island from a totally different perspective. 10/10!!!

This adventure in the Powered Hang-glider was amazing! I bought for b-day gift to my spouse and he LOVED it! Sunrise was phenomenal with the sun slowing coming up on the North Shore. Tom and Denise are awesome!! They are laid back and you just chill for a bit while waiting to start your flight time. They also are relaxed,... More

We had no idea this opportunity was even available when we arrived in Haleiwa. Through a fortunate cancellation two of my daughters and I were able to schedule flights. Denise and Tom Sanders greeted us at the hangar like old friends and after a few fun minutes of instruction, we were in the air for our 30 minute sunrise flights.... More

This was a fabulous adventure. I was a little scared because I really don't love to fly. But after meeting Denise and Tom I became very comfortable. They are an amazing couple with great talent not only in the air but also with the camera/video. They are informative and really put you first to make you feel completely comfortable. They... More

My husband and I had the incredible experience of visiting Oahu 8 years ago and had our first flight with Tom and Denise then. We still talk about it to this day so when we decided to go back to Oahu with our two boys 19 and 15 we decided that they should have the same opportunity to see the... More

I didn't know what to expect but Tom is a real pro and talked me through everything. The experience lasts for quite a while and you really get to know how it feels to actually fly. They seem to want you to have a great time and go the extra mile to present an adventure that you will remember. Both... More

My wife and I flew with Tom and Denise in early June. Every aspect of the experience was top notch. They are both accomplished pilots and adventure enthusiasts focused on safety. My wife and I both fly and skydive on a regular basis and we were instantly impressed with their set up. All of the equipment was very high quality... More

It was the most exciting day of my life. Meeting Tom and Denise was the first excitement. The second was to soar in the sky like an angel. Seeing the beautiful island I live on. Denise was the best in explaining everything to me and allowing me to take control of the aircraft, I felt like a pilot. It also... More

Denise and Tom were very accommodating slotting us in last minute. Nothing but warm welcomes. You know right away that you are flying with people that love what they are doing, and want to share that experience. They know their stuff. It was a fun and beautiful flight, and I did get to fly most of the flight myself. Incredible.... More
