Myself and my wife went to big island for our anniversary in May 2015. it was a great experience flying with Jeff, I should say for me an experience I will never forget in my life. Jeff is not a usual business franchise guy where they will take pictures and sell you Tshirts etc. He takes his time to make... More

I came across this looking for a bday present for my husband who always wanted to fly. And what a perfect gift this was! We decided to all go, hubby, 14 yrs. old daughter and myself, because it's way more fun if you can share your experience. It's one thing to go up in the air and enjoy the landscape.... More

This was, by far, one of the best thing we did on our trip to the Big Island. Never before have I seen such awesome views of the island. Brandon was such a great trainer and guide. I am deathly afraid of heights, but my husband talked me into going up. Although I didn't stay up as long as he... More

This was one of the most amazing experience ever! There are no words strong enough to describe how wonderful it was. Jeff is knowledgeable and I felt very safe with him. It is the best way to see the island. While I was up in the air, I saw 6 whales and a pod of 80 dolphins swimming near the... More

If you're looking for someone to take you up on an air tour then this isn't the company for you. But if you're really interested in hands-on flying experience where you learn about the instruments, wind currents, and the equipment, and you control the wings for most of the flight, then this is PERFECT! We loved our time with Jeff,... More

My husband is a bit of a reluctant traveler, so I wanted to do something special for him for his upcoming birthday. It's a long trip from NY to Hawaii, so when I learned about Jeff's introductory flight, I knew this was a winner. And it sure was!. Jeff is a great pilot, enthusiastic and happy to share that enthusiasm.... More

Jeff is an experienced pilot who made sure my travel companion knew how the ultralight worked and what he would be doing during the flight. From the enthusiastic reaction once they returned, I could tell it was an amazing tour--the best possible way to see the coastal scenery, and you get to do a lot of the flying yourself. A... More

After years of hang gliding in Colorado and Utah in early adulthood, I developed an interest in powered hang glider flight that stuck with me for 20 years. I came across Advanced Recreation on tripadvisor when researching our 2 week Christmas holiday trip to the big island. Based on the reviews, I knew I had to give it a try.... More

Motorized Hang Gliders are amazing. It feels more immersive than riding in a plane. It's fascinating to pull the wings left or right, up or down, and feel the glider react accordingly. And why not do it in Hawaii, where the views are better and the conditions are perfect? Jeffery is a wonderful teacher. My wife and I each went... More

When else will YOU have the chance to FLY an aircraft ??? Then tell all you know, that you flew an aircraft ??? Parasail ??? No - this is it. Spend the nickel. FAA - 100 % Asked if I could "buzz" the golfers below... Jeffery's reply - sorry
