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

ohmygosh! Without a doubt, the coolest, funnest thing I've ever done! I flew with Denise and just loved her. She is a total professional with a great personality. I was a little nervous before I did this and only did it because my son had set it up for me but as soon as we were in the air I... More

I'm a local girl and can honestly say this is one of the coolest experiences you'll get on Oahu. It's worth every penny for the views alone and if you're feeling ambitious you can learn to fly! Denise is extremely warm, professional and makes it all so easy. If you're a tourist and you want something cool and outside of... More

While you're on vacation and you want to experience something that will leave an indelible memory, this is it. I booked our flfights after reading the great reviews on Tripadvisor.

You have to drive all the way to the haleiwa, almost an hour from waikiki where most people are staying. And you have to wake up really early!! But it is a fantastic experience. Everyone will love it for sure. But fly just 30 min. Also expect to pay for photos and dvd. There is no way you will not... More

Tom, Denise & Lindsey were absolutely amazing! The flight was unbelievable, truly breathtaking! From start to finish they were friendly, explained everything & even went above & beyond to show us a map of North Shore so we could plan the rest of our day. If we ever return we will be sure to visit & will recommend anyone visiting... More

The flight was amazing and Denise and Tom are really nice people. The airfield a little hard to find, but they give great directions. It was a wonderful experience, even for someone like me who's afraid of heights. It was very FUN and safe. Chose the sunrise flight if you can. The view really is breathtaking. They offer a photo...

Paradise Air is definitely the company to take flight and see a bird's-eye view of Oahu. It was by far my favorite experience while visiting the island. Tom and Denise are such a wonderful duo and amazing flight instructors. Their love of the island and passion for flying are evident in their flight lessons. While you may not see their... More

Wonderful owners (Tom and Denise make you feel like family right off the bat with hugs all around), wonderful views (you definitely will see Oahu differently), wonderful experience (unique, safe, FUN!). Just do it. You'll be glad you did.

Such an awesome experience flying with Tom and Denise of Paradise Air. Beware, no hand shakes there, it's hugs you will receive. Great people. In the air you literally control your flight if you want after having instruction from either Tom or Denise. Surreal as you glide above some clouds looking down. You can't go wrong with this outfit.
