Take Flight In A Paraglider

MauiSea & Air Adventures

A paraglider is a free-flying, foot-launched aircraft fitted with a harness suspended below a fabric wing used primarily to satisfy man’s latent desire to fly.

Use of the equipment isn’t complicated. At most paragliding outlets, equipment comes with an instructor who’ll do all the heavy lifting (and pilot the apparatus until you get the hang of it).

Take-off s are done on the slopes of HALEAKALĀ , with descents ranging from 1,000 to 3,000 feet. If you’re a beginner, try a TANDEM FLIGHT. Considered the best way to learn, tandem paragliding pairs a certifi ed instructor and a student pilot in the same glider. Reservations are required, so call ahead to schedule your paragliding venture.
