I chose the 30 mins flight as we were 4 people. Hans is a great pilot and a very nice and friendly guy. He is very flexible and helped my friend to take great pictures from top by flying the glider from different angles. He'll make sure that you get the best experience in terms of views. You can tell... More

I chose the hr flight. Hans is a great pilot. Let's you pick what you want to see. With his skills and timing we were able to do a 360 over the top of Haleakala and see inside the crater (day b4 helicopter could not). I recommend soaring over helicopter you get your money's worth! It was a awesome way... More

My two daughters, aged 14 and 17 and I took the 1 hour flight with Hans and it was an absolutely amazing experience! Hans was not only the nicest and most engaging fellow you would ever want to meet but an incredible power glider pilot as well. Every flight is an individual experience and nothing is scripted with Hans. He... More

I have to say this was my first trip in a powered glider and what a ride from HANS. He has an amazing aircraft like no other on Maui.First a wonderful drive on the Hana Road down to the airport just out of town where Hans will take you over the Hana coast toward the back road and up,up,up,up and...

tl;dr: 1. Don't both reading the review, just go. :) 2. 1 passenger at a time, 30m or 1hr tours, only 1hr goes to the volcano 3. Walk-ups welcome, but of course reservations encouraged. 4. Go regardless of what you think of the weather, he may still be able to fly. My wife and I recently spent a couple of... More

After multiple visits to Maui, I thought I had experienced it all (helicopter rides, scuba diving, hiking, etc.), a motor glider ride with Hans over, and into, the Haleakala Volcano was just amazing and well worth the money. The Maui Revealed guidebook is a tremendous resource but it misses the boat completely concerning this unique experience.

I sent my son on the one-hour (actually a bit longer) tour up to 11,000 feet to fly over the Haleakala volcanic crater and then catch some other sights on the way back. Hans was just excellent - very experienced and personable, took great care to get everything set up just right for the trip, and was great to deal... More

Recently we were visiting Maui and decided to drive the road to Hana. I have always wanted to experience gliding in a glider plane and was surprised when my husband made arrangements for me to do so in Hana. Not only was it the gliding experience I've always wanted but we were able to glide into the crater at Mt.... More

The views were breath taking!!! Hans was very nice and we were able to see beautiful waterfalls throughout Hana!! I will be back to Maui... More
