Flying in a glider has been on my wishlist for my whole life. Flying over a volcano crater in a glider, was never in my dreams. Holy cow, this is one of the greatest experiences, ever. You have to do it. Hans is perfect and he's been flying gliders since he was 14....ummm, he's not 14 anymore! He's retired. I... More

Spent a wonderful 1 hour plus with Hans soaring high over Maui. It was a picture perfect day for the flight. Hans has a motorized glider which allows him to fly under power to his target altitude (11,000 feet for entrance into Haleakala crater) and then turn the engine off and just glide back to the Hana airport. We flew... More

I had an excellent time flying in the glider with Hans. He is a great pilot with always something interesting to say. The views were amazing as we saw the beauty of little Hana town, with all its trees and farms, then waterfalls, gorges, and coastline as we gained elevation. At 11,000ft, we flew over Haleakala Crater, a site to... More

First of all, Hans is awesome. He is so knowledgable, funny, and a very experienced pilot. He's been flying since he was 14 so I felt very safe. I paid for a 30 minute glider tour but ended up saying up there for nearly an hour flying up and over some clouds. It is a breathtaking experience being able to... More

I am a very nervous flier and Hans agreed to take me up and then right back down at no charge if I wasn't comfortable and if I liked it he would take me on 30 min trip. He made me feel very comfortable and explained things along the way. I got to see the Waimoku Falls from above (which... More

Wow---this was an experience of a lifetime! Hans takes you up in his motor-glider (a single engine plane with glider wings)! He's a marvelous pilot; calm and experienced. I took the 1+ hour ride over Haleakala Crater ($300 and I gave a great tip as was sooo worth it!). We climbed over waterfalls, surf, and the Seven Sacred Pools. Once... More

Hans was a great guide, pointing out all the beautiful things for me to see below us. He flew me low to the ground so I can see all of Hana's beauty up close and then we flew higher to gain altitude for the glide. He let me stick my hand out of the vent hole and feel the clouds... More

Hans is the perfect your guide. Affable, generous with his time and professional. An ideal way start to our time in Hana. Got to see the lay of the land- and it's gorgeous. Highly recommend!

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
