This was an amazing adventure! Armin is a great guide and very personable. It was beautiful to see Maui from this perspective. I would highly recommend this company. It is in Hana which is worth the drive and worth seeing all the natural beauty of Maui on the Hana side.

The ride with Armin was great, chillen in his man-cave hanger as the other people in our group flew was really cool as well. Very nice afternoon!

Armin was so much fun! My husband and I had never done anything like this, but neither of us was even the least bit scared. We felt so safe, and it felt like we were birds! What better way to see the area! We each did a 30 minute ride and felt like that was perfect. Longer would have been... More

Plane people. I know them; you know them. I am not one. I'm also not an extreme sportster or a gadget geek. However -- THIS. WAS. AWESOME. You know that dream where you're flying? YOU CAN ACTUALLY LIVE THAT DREAM. I'd describe the glider "trike" as a motorcycle-sailboat in the sky. In 1 lesson, I learned all the basics of... More

Flying with Armin Engert on Maui (www.hangglidingmaui.com/about.shtml) is the best thing to do while in Maui. He's the safest pilot I have ever flown with (I've been a pilot for over 30 years) and he flies in gentle air and you can see sights in Hana and on Maui that you can't ever see when you drive and stop. It's... More

Hovering in the pure white of the clouds a few thousand feet up was one of the more memorable and surreal things I've experienced! Both my wife and I did the 1 hr flight with Armin (July 2015) and it was excellent. We figured it would be a fun thing to stop and try in the middle of our Hana... More

Arman, the pilot/instructor was very good. Helpful, knowledgable and very accommodating. The flight was incredible! Over the beautiful Maui shoreline, the lush green jungle and the spectacular waterfalls, the scenery was breathtaking! But the best thing was that you were actually flying, like an eagle! Arman pointed out various points of interest and incorporated some instruction about the aircraft, weather... More

My wife and I did the 45 minute trips. It was great!! Armin and his wife (Karen I think) were so nice. Great views, if you like waterfalls you'll see more this way than any other. My wife even had a beer with Armin's wife while I was flying. Cost $500 (2x$230+$40 for the pictures) but well worth it !!... More

So, I will admit to fear. The day before, watching the sun ease up over the meringue castle clouds from the rim of the Haleakala crater, I asked the mountain to keep me safe on my hang gliding trip, and the drive out. The road to Hana lived up to its twisty reputation. Then, there's Armin, grinning, because he knows... More

It was my wife and I's first flight lesson and it was a great experience. Armin was friendly and very patient. Learning the basics of handling a glider was exciting and hope to learn more in the future. The views were a real treat as well. Glad we had the opportunity to do this!
