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.

Although it is pricey, it was certainly worth it. The whole crew, go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that your time with them is memorable and pleasant. Uncle T and Aunty D are exceptionally knowledgeable, helpful and kind. Wouldn't hesitate booking another flight with them again!

Super friendly, professional and fun! Well worth the money. You can tell how much everyone at Paradise Air enjoys showing/teaching you about flying and their great corner of Oahu. My wife and I did the hour flight and were glad we did the full hour. I would also recommend the sunrise flight if you can wake up that early :)

My husband found this on TripAdvisor before we left for Oahu. I called Denise after we arrived to find out more about this thing and was very excited and put at ease listening to her explain it all on the phone.

Don't get me wrong.... we LOVE helicopters too! But if you're trying to decide between the two (helicopters and powered hang gliders), take it from this review above!

So many reviewers felt the same way we did making it harder to find even more wonderful things to say about Heidi, Denise and Tom. Our first hug and greeting was warm and welcoming.
