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.

It was such an wonderful experience ever I had. I rode with Denise and she was one of the most nicest person ever. I definitely can not forget of the view of North Shore....spectacular view. I loved every single moment flying and I was so glad to try this Paradise Air.

If you only have time to do one adventure, fly with Denise and Tom. My wife and I took flights in October and were lucky enough to have the perfect day with winds that allowed us to fly around Kaena Point, along the western coast and then up and over the mountains and along along the North Shore to Waialua...

I found this activity while my visit to Honolulu with my husband and friends. I am glad we all did this as it is so much fun. Denise is a great instructor. Sights were beautiful. We even spotted rainbow circle. I totally recommend doing this.

My husband surprised me with a flight with Paradise Air for my birthday this year. When we arrived for our scheduled flight, we met Denise & Tom and found it was too windy to fly. So, they made us coffee and chatted with us for an hour or so before making a great recommendation for breakfast nearby. Since we're not... More

Power Hang Gliding is phenomenal! Denise and Tom are great, and make it an easy and exhilarating experience all around. Hands down favorite thing I did on Oahu!

This was the most awesome experience! I absolutely loved the flight. Paradise Air is exceptional. I was a little apprehensive before arriving at Paradise Air. By the time it came time to put on my flight suit, I did not have a nervous feeling left. Tom made me feel so comfortable before we ever left the ground. Once we were... More

This came recommended by friends, and it lived up to its billing! Tip-top view of the island, including Kaena Point and the whole North Shore. Friendly, relaxed, professional service. We flew with Eric, who normally flies over on Kauai but was filling in on Oahu, and he was fantastic. (He also literally wrote the book about weight shift control flying,... More

My wife suprised me with a Paradise Air flight lesson for our 25th wedding anniverary. To sum it up...it was perfect! Tom and Denise were so professional, and within minutes of taking off Tom gave me the controls and had me flying above the beautiful North Shore beaches while spotting turtles and dolphins! I spent many years flying Blackhawk helicopters... More

My wife and I came to the island with many activities on our agenda. If we had one to do over again it would definitely be the flight with Tom and Denise. They call it a flight lesson, but I've never enjoyed a lesson like I have with these guys. The views are breathtaking and the experience is beyond any... More

The flight lesson was AWESOME!!! It was by far the best thing to do on Oahu. They are patient, experienced, and professional.
