I got to soar like a seagull along the NS coastline and got carried by the wind to the slopes of Mt Kaalaa and Kaena Pt.

From the moment our glider plane was pulled toward Mt Kaala in a small prop plane commandeered by a skilled pilot whose big stature matched his great ability to fly us high above the clouds I knew we were in for a great flight. My companion and I watched the pilot do a spiral roll downward after the cable from... More

I wanted to find interesting, unique activities for my 9 and 11 year olds and this is it! Both kids had. What they described as a "totally awesome" experience. From my perspective, Yuko and her pilots were fabulous to deal with...friendly, instructive and efficient. Hana Hou Air is located on the North Shore, very close to Haleiwa, so plan accordingly....

I live on Oahu and wanted to experience a glider flight from Dillingham airport. I found Hana Hou Air in one of the Tourist acitivity magazines. I called and made a reservation on the same day. I took a 30 minute scenic tour with the owner Yuko. She is very nice and a good pilot too. The fee was money... More

This was my second visit to Yuko and Brian at Hana Hou Air. As a private pilot, I can attest to their diligence in safety of glider operations and overall professionalism. And they are patient and willing teachers for those of us eager to expand our skills and explore alternate aspects of aviation. Dillingham provides an exceptional venue for soaring... More

I joined this activity with my sister and brother. I come to Hawaii, I always enjoy shopping and not rarely join something activity. But this time, my father found this activity and I thought I can't do like this experience in my country. So I decided to join. When I was in Dillingham Airfield, I had no worry because the... More

I'm not a person who drive a glider, just a traveler. When I drive to North shore by car, the great view welcomes me anytime. Then, feel like jumping into the grace wave of the ocean. But, this place will provide you different view of Hawaii. You can see amazing view of mountains and ocean waves from a plane! Besides,... More

As an experienced military and airline pilot, I took the time to find the very best people and equipment available before committing to the many flights I have taken in Hawaii. Without a doubt, Yuko and her team are the best! Safety is their first concern, and this is reflected in everything they do - from maintaining their equipment to... More

There are choices... Flying with Yuko at Dillingham, you are with a safe and experienced glider operation. Yuko is an FAA designee, CFI and a great stick! I am a pilot with over 13 thousand hours and I was impressed with everything from the "hello" to the tow, release, flight, instruction, approach, landing and post flight briefing. Quality equipment as... More
