Wonderful experience. You are up close and personal with the clouds. The only nervous part was when were over land and there were differences in air temperature causing a bit of "turbulence". However, Armin was spot on confident. Would gladly do it again. Even my wife, who was a bit nervous pre-flight, could not stop raving about her flight.

My Husband and I both took lessons in April. It was phenomenal! Armin was professional, knowledgable and one of the nicest people we've ever met. By the time you go up in the air, you feel like you've known him forever. The views are just amazing and we got fantastic photos. The flight was smooth and neither of us ever... More

Seriously, you won't stop thinking about it for days. Afraid of heights? No problem, I thought so too. My heart was pounding like crazy as I was putting on the helmet before I got on. And yet there I was 2,000 feet up in elevation singing "A whole new world" and raising my arms out, catching clouds in my hands.... More

Thank you for this wonderful review. It was great meeting you both and showing you the basics about powered Hang gliding. Check out this app: allabouttrikes it got some good videos on it. Hope to fly with you again and the next time you get to sit in the front seat. Aloha from Maui More

First of all, Armin is amazing. Accommodating to a last minute time change, funny, and really informative. You'll be able to hold the controls within minutes of getting into the air Second of all, this is one of those experiences that you will remember forever. Helicopter rides have nothing on this. You feel that you are really in the air,... More

Everything from the personal service from Armin and his wife Karin to the flights for myself, wife and son were beyond excellent. I've seen Hawaii from a helicopter and thought that was amazing but this took the cake! It is an experience that will stay with you forever and should not be missed. It's safe, exciting and breathtaking. Thank you... More

Exciting and amazing! This was such a fun, novel experience. What a great way to see the amazing views, colors, and sights of Hana. I felt totally safe and secure the entire time, and yet experienced the open air and excitement of hang gliding. The operator was professional and made this an experience to remember. I would highly recommend it... More

My husband really wanted to do this activity so he booked it for us and our two sons 13 and 11 (it states you have to be 12 but he made an exception for us as my son is almost 12). Everyone LOVED the flight. My 11 year old wanted to go up again the minute he came down. The... More

If you ever wanted to know what it's like to ride a motorcycle in the sky, this would be it. I wanted to fly since I was a little boy. Flying with Armin in the power hang glider trike open cockpit is an experience of a lifetime. This was a bucket list thing for me turning 60 this year. I... More

After several days by the pool at the hotel my high school/college age kids were begging for some adventure. Well, they got it and more!
