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! Our hang gliding experience with Armin nothing sort of spectacular. We got hands on hang gliding experience over one of the most beautiful locations on earth. Armin is an incredibly experienced instructor and left me... More

First trip to Maui for my wife and I and loved every minute of it. We had so many great experiences, but I have to say, this was one of the highlights. Armin (the owner and pilot) was great pre-trip and also during the who experience. Not only did I have a great sightseeing experience, I actually learned some things... More

We chose this over a helicopter because we wanted a unique experience to view the Hana coastline. My wife and I booked back-to-back lessons. My wife’s lesson went east from the Hana airport to Hana and as far as the Seven Sacred Pools. My lesson went west along the “Road to Hana” viewing dozens of waterfalls most of which you... More

Armin was so great~! We were able to get spectacular views of Hana from that height and it was such an absolute thrill. Driving teh road to Hana is one thing but the vistas and the experience of being so high up, definitely a different perspective A total must-do~!

Hang gliding with Armin was an unbelievable experience. The bird's eye view of Hana was spectacular, you won't believe how many waterfalls you can see. Armin was a great instructor, after a 30 minute flight you come away with an understanding of the basics of power gliding. If you are going to do the road to Hana I can not... More

Armand is great, my kids had a fantastic time hang gliding with him. He made it a lot of fun and yodels when coming in for a landing, We highly recommend doing this and hope to return to do it again
