What an experience! Armin is a hoot and incredibly great to work with. This takes the best elements of sky-diving, hang-gliding, and paragliding and combines them into a singular experience. It's like being in a flying motorcycle. Your open-air vehicle quickly gets up to 4000 feet and you soar over the Maui countryside, with unbelievable views of the ocean, the mountains, coral reefs, waterfalls, and all the other beautiful sites of Maui. Plus, you fly through clouds. Incredible - thanks Armin!

YOU GUYS- YOU HAVE TO DO THIS. My husband and I live based on the idea that on every vacation we do, we have to do something bass ass... Well this is it! It really is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Armin was extremely professional, courteous and a pleasure to work with. He showed us amazing views as well as his genuine love for this experience. From the minute we walked into the hangar- we were greeted and felt so comfortable and safe with him. The views you see are unbelievable and he teaches you so much not only about some of the areas you will see on the tour- but a little about the powered glider too! So fun, My husband and I highly recommend this experience with Armin!

This was not only a trip highlight but a LIFE highlight. We were pretty excited for this experience, but Armin completely blew us away and exceeded our (already high) expectations. Armin has a heart of gold - one of the nicest people you'll meet. Most importantly, he is an expert pilot and instructor. It was clear he has a ton of experience and is so passionate about flying. His energy is infectious! I was a little nervous about flying, but Armin put me at ease and made sure I was comfortable the entire time. My spouse is a bit more adventurous, and Armin responded to this wonderfully as well, giving him a bit more of an exciting experience. He also went above and beyond for us with photos and videos, getting some incredible footage that has already wowed our friends and family. We both agreed, the flight felt very safe and controlled - there is no falling sensation, and honestly this ride was way smoother than our plane to Hawaii. We were in the air for 45 minutes, and covered a ton of ground, flying over the ocean, through a cloud, over waterfalls inaccessible from the road, and seeing black sand and red sand beaches. We were speechless, it was absolutely breathtaking. We thought we had seen Maui, but this gave us a completely new perspective. When I got back down, my face hurt from smiling so much. Also - Armin takes one person up at a time, but he has a comfortable hanger with chairs, WiFi, and games, where you can hang out while your partner/family member is flying. We will always treasure our flight. Mahalo Armin and we hope to fly with you again someday!

Wow! Wow! Wow! This is such a wonderful experience! Armin is an amazing guy and will make sure you have lots of fun. He’s got that true Hawaiian hospitality! Hang gliding was not scary at all for me- instead it was relaxing and beautiful! I got to fly through a cloud and I felt like a bird! Pro-tip- Bring Armin some yummy cookies! You’ll want to give his something in return for one of the best experiences of you life!
