Imagine flying with the birds in your own open cockpit aircraft. 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.

The Paradise Air crew are very friendly and helpful. (Will direct you to best restaurants, etc.) Tom and Denise are very knowledgeable and safe. Schedule your flight with them early in your stay and early in the day. The weather is more predictable early in the day, and you will have a chance to reschedule if needed. You don't want... More

We took flight with Tom and Denise on Tuesday. 3 of my kids, ages 21,17, and 11 and myself flew. We each did a 30 minute flight. Wow, probably one of our favorite activities we have done. We also were able to pilot the aircraft including my 11 yr old son. The views of the north shore and the whole... More

This was the single best experience of my recent vacation in Hawaii! I've always wanted to fly a motorized hang glider (trike) and Denise and Tom made my first introduction very memorable. Registration was very easy, and they provide excellent directions to the airfield from anywhere on Oahu, as well as answering any questions or concerns you may have. Safety... More

The view from the powered Airborne XT912 was spectacular!!! Tom and Denise were very easy to talk to and the flight lesson was superb. I flew the Airborne a majority of the time with ease-- what a blast! My wife and I have been traveling for 20 years and have seen fabulous sights. This was on top of my bucket... More

My 16 year old daughter and I were on vacation in Hawaii and she wanted to hang glide. This was a wonderful experience and Tom and Denise are great at their job. I'm terrified of heights but Tom helped me out and I realized there is nothing to fear. Flying the plane was easy and fun and the views were... More

My lovely boyfriend arrived for an early morning flight and were so excited for an aerial view of the island. Tom and Denise were professional, friendly and extremely accommodating. They pointed out many famous North Shore landmarks and gave us recommendations of other things to do and see while on the island. I felt so confident and well informed on... More

Absolutely loved our trip. They are exceptional from the minute of booking to the very end. Dealt with Denise on the phone: I remember her saying no one ever says I wish I only did the 30 min trip - so we went for it and did the 60 min sunrise tour...absolutely amazing. They give you a suit to wear,... More

I am a high school math teacher who took this trip through a grant for teacher renewal. My goal was to experience as many different modes of flight as possible. My sunrise flight with Denise was hands-down the best! I also did hang gliding, helicopter, biplane, and hot air balloon on my trip, which were very fun too, but each... More

Paradise Air provided the most exciting, awe-inspiring and memorable adventure that we had on our second honeymoon to Hawaii. We spent three weeks on three islands enjoying a wide variety of activities. Our flying lessons with Paradise Air topped all of them. We had the time of our lives. Tom and Denise are top-notch flight instructors with a top-notch business.... More
