My granddaughter and I had planned go hang gliding before we left for Maui. It entails a trip to Hana on the winding Hana highway which is interesting in itself. Three miles short of Hana is the turn off for Hana airport and Hang Gliding Maui. Of course, reservations are a must and one further requirement, weight must be between... More

...because you will definitely want to do it again if you ever have the chance! It is an amazing experience to fly so unencumbered and open to the elements. I've flown in a traditional glider and in a vintage 1929 Travelaire biplane. But the experience of being directly in the air, wind in your face, soaring over the beautiful Hana... More

You go on vacation to paradise for an exotic environment and once in a lifetime adventures. I have ridden twice with Armin Engler out of the Hana Airport on Maui and each time have come away with a real sense of wonder. Even my daughter thought this was worth it and with his professionalism, my wife, who is not a... More

Where to begin!? A once in a lifetime experience and a perfect way to see Hana. Armin is an outstanding instructor/guide. I highly recommend doing a full hour flight and you're going to want the photos/videos so take that into account when budgeting. The flight itself is remarkable. Along the road to Hana you hear water rushing everywhere and realize... More

We had so many awesome experiences with different tours and exploration in Maui over our 4 weeks. The most memorable was getting to fly with Armin Engert of Hang Gliding Maui. Armin is a class act, funny and easy to learn from, one of those guys that makes you feel like an instant friend. We each did an hour instruction... More

Power hang gliding is terrific. Essentially it is a hang glider set on top of two seats (the front one for the pilot and the other for you) with a motor and a propeller. The engine is used to get you high enough that you can turn it off and glide. Much safer and easier than jumping off a cliff.... More

So my trip was last April 2016 and I didn’t do my review; So so disgusted with myself, but it does go to show you that my hour flight instruction was a remembrance of a lifetime. Armin and Karin were wonderful. My original date was cancelled due to a family illness and they were so accommodating to my changed date.... More

Hang gliding in Maui was an incredible new experience for me. When you are in Maui you should not miss the road to Hana. But my girlfriend and I were wondering how it looks like from the air. So we found the highly recommended 'Hang Gliding Maui' in our travel book (Maui revealed). Everything what is written there is true.... More

I am scared of heights... really scared, but I decided to face those fears and hang glide with Armin today. It was totally worth it! There was not even one moment that I felt fear or concern. (Why was I scared of heights in the first place? It is so beautiful so high up.) Armin is incredible. He is a... More

This was absolutely wonderful, worth every single dime and then some. Firstly, the gentleman who runs this place, Mr. Armin Engert is so kind and generous. His sole goal is ensuring that you have a good time and truly makes you feel like family. The entire Road to Hannah was a wonderful trip, but the opportunity to see the amazing... More
