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.

Tom and Denise were fantastic hosts. They were very kind and got us quickly up to speed on how to fly these things. The whole experience was very exciting. If you're up for this, definitely try to do the sunrise flight.

Hello, wanting to try this out when we go to Oahu next month! It would be myself and my husband. Would we have to pay $60 per person for photos or would it be $60 per couple? Thank you

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.
Will you pick up and drop off at my hotel?

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