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.

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.

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. My husband found it educational, fun and just a gorgeous way to view the North Shore; he would like to take an even longer ride next... More

From the moment I got there, they greeted me and made me feel welcome. The pilot and his assistant were the most nice and friendly people i've ever met. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. And dont get me started on the awesome ride in the air. I can't explain how fun it was flying in the sky... More

Thrilling rides and the highlight of our trip to Oahu for my 16 y/o son and 13 y/o daughter. Tom and Denise are "da bomb!" and run an impeccably safe and fun(!) operation. I'm a professional airline pilot and I'm completely impressed with the dedication to safety that underpins everything they do. Other operators are not nearly as dedicated to... More

It is totally worth the money and DEFINITELY get the photo package - the pics are the best part. The... More

My wife (Sweetums) and I booked the first morning 45 minute flights. They have two planes so we were able to go up simultaneously. It was a wonderful experience. On our various vacations we have been white water rafting, white water kayaking, zip lining, parasailing, etc. This was one of our best experiences. I guess because it was so unique.... More

Wonderful experience!! I was terrified of flying because I'm scared of heights but Denise made me feel comfortable and I had a blast! This is an absolute must! The sights were absolutely breathtaking. We got the sunrise one hour flight and we got the videos and the pictures that were recorded during the flight. Definitely worth it!

This was my son's and I second experience with this type of flight. For the two others, it was their first experience and we ALL had a GREAT time!
