A wonderful flight above Maui. Extraordinary views of coastlines, waterfalls and of course the Haleakala volcano. And a motiveless glide down to Hana from 11k feet. Hans was a treat of a guide and a pro pilot. Thanks my man!!

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.
