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.

40 minute trip over the island, really spectacular to see the island from the air, pilot and staff were friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend this at the start of your trip to get a good overview of what the island has to offer.

I believe it would be $60 per person. My father and I went on flights and we paid $60 for the photos for each of us, not as a pair. Understandable since we each went on a separate glider so our photos were not together.

Sorry, We do not offer hotel pickups. Pretty much everyone rents a car to get to us.
