Editor Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Ask to steer the plane yourself, and your pilot will show you how. Don't worry - they won't let you do anything dangerous!
  • Bring a camera or camcorder to record as much of the flight as you'd like.
  • Those with iron stomachs can do the aerobatic flight, complete with loops, rolls, and spins.
Get a bird's-eye view of Oahu as you're pulled nearly 3,000 feet in the air before gliding down at 200 feet a minute in a sailplane steered by an experienced FAA certified glider pilot. This is one of the biggest thrills in all of Hawaii.
