Just finishing 10 wonderful days in Maui and the highlight was soaring with Hans over Hana and Haleakala. Was a dream for years of both my dad and myself. We celebrated his 76th birthday taking the perfect flight! Hans was a fantastic pilot and his plane gave you an unobstructed view of the scenery and clouds. I was nervous leading... More

Hand is a very reliable pilot and excellent your guide, and a glider is just the most fabulous way to see the island of Maui. This is the best value for your travel dollar and more than worth a trip to Hana for 60 minutes with the only glider tour on the island. When we landed all I could think... More

I just finished an hour ride/glide with Hans and it was truly amazing. He was a great guide and pilot. The scenery was breath taking. I've never done a glide down from 11thousand feet, amazing!

great scenery, great pilot and totally worth it. If you have ever flown in a standard tow glider this will be a little less special. This glider has a front mounted engine. It allows the aircraft to take off and climb to a specific altitude before the power is cut and the gliding begins. Fun, it's just not the true... More

OMG! Skyview Soaring with Hans was a highlight of our trip to Maui. I went first and Hans was fantastic. He took time to explain where we were and pointed out places for me to take pictures. He was so nice and informative. My husband went after me and also had a fantastic time. Thanks Hans, you were awesome!

I had an great time seeing the vistas of West Maui and Haleakala. Hans is an excellent pilot and tour guide pointing out many interesting things to see during our flight. I really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it to anyone heading out to Hana.

If you're looking for a truly unique experience, take a glider ride with Hans. I highly recommend the experience not only because of the epic views of Hana (and Maui) that I experienced, but almost more importantly because of Hand himself. My flight was scheduled for 9am. When I arrived around 830, Hans was checking the weather on his laptop.... More

This is an amazing way to see the beauty of Hana and the vast scale of Haleakala Crater. Hans circled over waterfalls and particularly beautiful parts of the coastline so I could get the best pictures, and when we finally reached the crater and he turned off the engine, it was a breathtaking experience to float down over the clouds.
