My wife and I went to the Hana airport so I could go for a ride in a powered hang glider. While waiting (there where two people who had reservations ahead of me) I met Bill the pilot for SKyview Soaring and decided to go up with him. My wife and I had been in a glider before and while I liked it she swore she would never go again. Unlike the gliders that have to be towed by another plane this one has an engine. You take off under power and glide back down on just the wind and thermals. The ride was very comfortable and the views spectacular. We seen triple waterfalls that plunged down the mountains for thousands of feet. The views of the Hana side of Maui from the air is breathtaking. It gives you the perspective of the lush tropical rain forest covering the mountains all the way up into the clouds. It gives you an appreciation for how much you miss by just driving the Hana highway. Bill is an amazing pilot with a great personality and his stories create a very relaxed and safe feeling environment. He makes it feel like you are flying with a long time friend. His knowledge of the area is impressive. After the waterfalls and other hidden and unaccessible wonders Bill took us up into the clouds, cuts the engines and lets you fly back.. On the ground it took me some time to convince my wife that she would love it and that the experience should not be missed. Bill even said that if she did not enjoy it he would come right back down. Then he let her sit in the plane to see how comfortable it was and how it was nothing like the small un-powerd glider she had been in before. When she came back from the flight she had a huge smile and said that it was a spiritual experience that she would never have imagined. If you are going to do the road to Hana you should not miss seeing it from the air. Bill can put anybody at ease and makes sure you feel and are safe. I would recommend this to anyone of any age.
