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!!

My wife and I both did the one hour flight with Hans, and it was well worth the trip. You won't get a better view of the island than when you are gliding 11k feet above it. Hans makes the ride very enjoyable and is more than happy to answer any questions you might have about the island, the glider,... More

After driving the road to Hana, this is a great way to see where you have arrived.! You will see Haleakala, the ragged shoreline with its secret coves, and most importantly, the waterfalls your plan to hike while in Hana. We flew up the valley of Ohe'o with its 7 sacred pools, and even saw George Harrison's estate. Hans, the... More

This was one of my favorite experiences from our honeymoon! My husband is an aviation junkie and loves everything planes. So when we arrived at the Travaasa Hana and saw gliding on the list of activities we jumped on it! There are two options - 30 minute tour of the island or a hour tour and glide over the volcano....

My husband and I went on consecutive glider rides and were not disappointed. Hans was very friendly and persistent. On both trips he had some difficultly finding an updraft to top of the crater, but his persistence paid off and we made it. The views are spectacular and the glide back down was awesome. Definitely recommend it unless you are... More

Last Thursday I flew with Hans in his power glider. We took off over the ocean and he gave me the best tour ever of Hana and the Haleakala crater. His knowledge of the area and his expertise as a pilot gave a wonderful flight as well as a fantastic tour of the area. Thank you for the highlight of... More

Had a great visit to the Hana Hotel and one of the many activities was glider ride over the Island. An incredible view that I would recommend for everyone. Getting a good overview of the natural beauty of the island is something that all visitors should do to really appreciate where they are. Great flight. Thanks Hans. Jim

My friends and I took the gliding trip with Hans - it was awesome! I wish we had done it earlier in our vacation so we would know where all the secret beaches are!

Jan, the owner, is just the nicest guy imaginable. Husband and I took two back to back half hour flights (only one passenger at a time will fit) and it was an incredible experience. I was a little nervous about flying in a glider but Jan clearly knows what he's doing and immediately put me at ease. Seeing Hana and... More
