This was my first flight in anything but a commercial airliner. I couldn't have picked a better place to try ultralight flying, or a more experienced and entertaining pilot to learn from. The views along the Hana coast were delicious: waterfalls in the canyons, blue ocean against black lava cliffs. Being in a completely open cockpit definitely gives you a... More

My wife and I both loved our 45 minute adventure with Armand, fun, exciting and beautiful. Five stars plus. Couldn't be better.

We decided to try something more adventurous on this last trip. Something a bit more exciting than zip-lining. We found Armin, who runs his hang gliding "school" out of the Hana airport. Armin was a complete delight and the trip was fabulous. We chose the 45 minute ride, and, Armin took each of us up into the clouds, over several... More

I was the first man to fly an ultralight around the world. I did it in 1998, and took 120 days; I obviously tried for 80 days but the Chinese and the Russians had other ideas. I have visited Maui a number of times, and in particular, Armin Engert’s ultralight operation – Hang Gliding Maui - out of Hana Airport.... More

There is no better way to see Hana and Maui than from an open-cockpit ultralight. With Armin Engert at Hang Gliding Maui you can do that and also learn about how to fly a weight-shift aircraft. He's a pilot with tons of experience, a fantastic attitude and a wonderfully wry sense of humor. The man Armin took flying before me... More

My husband and I visited Maui this summer and the hang gliding experience was absolutely amazing. Armin is very down to earth and friendly and loves what he does. He took us up one at a time, and let me tell you, I just couldn't stop smiling the entire time. It is such a thrill to be up in the... More

Armin is the BEST! He will go out of his way to make your experience unforgettable. He has thousands of hours of gliding experience and loves to put his "students" at ease with individualize attention. A great sense of humor and very personable. The highlight of my hour lesson was the 4 minute, power-off glide down from 4500 feet to... More

Wow what a great flight Instructor. This was my third lesson with Armin and my wife's first, we both had a ball. I took two lessons four years ago with Armin and got hooked. Went home and brought my own trike. If you have ever wanted to learn to fly, or just thought you might, you will want to do... More

Loved this from start to finish and Armin is the perfect pilot/guide. The closest thing to being a bird that I'll probably experience and the views are just amazing. Being up in the clouds was "heavenly" :-)
