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 one of my favourite things I did during my time on Oahu, and that's coming from someone who did an activity every day. The experience itself was absolutely incredible and well worth every cent, and Denise was absolutely fabulous in organising the whole thing. I cannot recommend this enough.

My home is on Oahu, but I work over seas and was here in January on R&R and wanted to do something different than the usual. I did the standard Google search "best things to do on Oahu" and the Tripadvisor suggestions were at the top of the page so I took a look and found this particular activity with... More

A group of six of us thoroughly enjoyed our adventure with Paradise Air. We chose the earliest flights of the day and were not disappointed with the opportunity to see the sunrise. Denise, Tom, and Heidi made it their mission to provide all we needed to make us comfortable in their hangar and, once off the ground, we were given... More

Flying over the North Shore is simply awesome especially when the pilots are so friendly and experienced. The scenery is beautiful! Buzzing above the mountains and gargantuan surf is unforgettable. Thanks Tom and Denise. Your energy is contagious.

Mahalo for your kind words Wandalee! Yes you are correct.... our powered hang gliders ARE top of the line. They are the most tricked out models AirBorne makes and we also have the NEWEST fleet in the state (probably the country!) with our 2014 and 2016 trikes. Having been in the sport and business of teaching powered hang gliding for... More

Denise and Heidi are very professional and made my trike experience one of the best things I have ever done!
