Hanggliding Maui integrated the Autogyro in 2021. It can handle stronger winds and crosswinds. We fly the Autogyro MTO 2017 with the reliable 914 turbo charged Rotax engine.
An autogyro, also known as a gyroplane or a gyrocopter is a type of rotorcraft that uses an unpowered rotor in free autorotation to develop lift. Forward thrust is provided independently, by an engine-driven propeller. While similar to a helicopter rotor in appearance, the autogyro's rotor must have air flowing across the rotor disc to generate rotation, and the air flows upwards through the rotor disc rather than down.
The first autogyro was invented and first flown on 9 January 1923 it is considered the predecessor of the modern helicopter.
In case of an engine out the Autogyro can land in tight places with a very slow touchdown speed.
It handles turbulences with ease and you can barely feel them. So no problem if you are prone to motion sickness.

This is truly a must do in Maui. We made our one day road to Hana trip into a 2 day trip because we wanted to do Hang gliding on one day and it was so worth it. Armin is super friendly, very experienced and made the whole experience amazing. We had done a helicopter tour a couple of days before (which had made us a little queasy) and this was way better to see the island. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The ride was smooth (didn't have to worry about being airsick), exciting and the views and experience just cannot be described.
"BIRD'S EYE VIEW OF MAUI"
This was definitely one of the highlights of our Maui trip! After reading about this in our Maui guidebook, my wife and I opted to do this instead of a helicopter tour and we were NOT disappointed! Hang gliding over Maui offers you an unparalleled view of this gorgeous island. Armin is an incredibly kind and charismatic guide who even gives you a lesson while you're in the air and allows you to steer! Can't recommend this enough for anyone looking for a unique experience that you won't forget.
"To The Top!"
Had a blast! This is definitely one of the best things to do on Maui as the tagline says. You get an hour lesson on how to fly a trike and go up with Armin as your instructor. You get an amazing view, learn a lot, and photos of an activity that might soon become a hobby. I am already thinking about more lessons back on the mainland. During my flight, we went to the top of Haleakala and flew over the crater! Thats 10,000 feet!!! Cant wait to go back.
