The view from a bubble-topped sailplane is out of this world. High above Oahu's famous North Shore, average visibility is 30-40 miles. Take a ride with one of our million-mile pilots, and watch the breathtaking beauty of the island unfold below.
See the island, in a sleek high-performance aircraft, soaring the skies over northwest Oahu. Panoramic vistas unfold as your pilot guides you in this bubble-topped aircraft; on the wings of the wind with sights and sensations never experienced before.
Depending on the length-of-ride and weather conditions, you can see all of the North Shore and most of the interior of the island including Pearl Harbor, Diamond Head and Honolulu to the South. A 20-minute flight can attain altitudes of 3,000 feet or more. Mother Nature sometimes has a say in where we can fly and how high we can get (because of cloud-cover and wind-conditions). Seating is "cozy"

No suggetions at all. Scott, the glider pilot, was wonderful, and Kim was warm and helpful, and Gary was hysterical. It was all good fun, it was one of the most incredible things I've ever done and everyone involved was fantastic! That's it, I've run out of superlatives. . .
We arrived on our scheduled day to find that our names had not been put in the appointment book....luckily they managed to fit us in as scheduled. I would not have been able to reschedule as we were flying home the next day. They were very apologetic but could have been a bit better organized. The actual glider flight was terrific!!
Loved it - would definitely do it again!
Back seat a bit tight for 2 passengers but they made it work for us. We had a great ride.
