Overview

Imagine flying with the birds in your own open cockpit aircraft. With an instructor along, you can take the controls and soar white sandy beaches, blue waters, pineapple fields and majestic mountains. Our state-of-the-art fleet of two new powered hang gliders are the best ways to see O'ahu's north shore, while learning a bit about flying at the same time. Each student leaves with a certificate showing instruction received that applies towards FAA Sport Pilot certificate.

Flying the powered hang glider was a lot of fun. The views were spectacular. For the 1-hour lesson we flew along the northern coast at an altitude of 1000 ft, so could easily see surfers, turtles and dolphins. Denise was great. Definitely not an inexpensive...More

This was the most fun experience ever. Tom, Denise, and Heidi are awesome. They run a first class operation. Rather than just a discovery flight, the flight is instructional. I have never met people more enthusiastic about their profession. This was just plain fun!

I believe it would be $60 per person. My father and I went on flights and we paid $60 for the photos for each of us, not as a pair. Understandable since we each went on a separate glider so our photos were not together.

Sorry, We do not offer hotel pickups. Pretty much everyone rents a car to get to us.
