My friends and I took the gliding trip with Hans - it was awesome! I wish we had done it earlier in our vacation so we would know where all the secret beaches are!

Yes. Only one passenger per flight as it is a small aircraft. Hans the pilot/owner is flying in the left side-by-side seat. The charge is by length of time (30 or 60 minutes) per person for one flight.
