For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, which is why every time a human attempts to fly, a bird attempts to drive a stick shift. Engage in one of the primary mandates of physics with today's Groupon: for $100, you get a three-hour group paragliding lesson from Fly Hawaii (a $200 value), which is based in Waimanalo. Customers will receive their lesson location when they call to make their reservation.

Fly Hawaii introduces gliders to the basics of flight, equipping them with all the materials necessary for a safe takeoff and landing in the luscious, rolling green hills of Oahu, Maui, or the Big Island. Chief instructor Joachim Hagemann carries more gliding experience than a paper airplane from World War I, with 32 years of paragliding instruction and more than 1,500 hours of airtime. Locations may vary because of weather conditions, and classes usually begin in the mornings.

Fly Hawaii

USHPA– and American Paragliding Association–certified paragliding instructor and pilot Joachim Hagemann has been recertified three times, logging more than 1,500 hours of air time to keep his gliding school, Fly Hawaii, accident free for 32 years. Boasting clearance for cliff and cross-country takeoffs as well as for flying in turbulence, Joachim helps both beginning and advanced students spread their wings in various paragliding lessons. His excursions take paragliders soaring over island locales such as Mauna Kea, Pu'u Loa Crater, and Big Sur, avoiding ground-bound obstacles such as traffic cops and jealous ostriches. Joachim also supplies flight seekers with new and gently used paragliding gear.
