Two 19-year-old men were arrested Tuesday and face federal charges for allegedly illegally paragliding inside Haleakala Crater on Maui. Haleakala National Park issued a news release saying one man was caught after launching and landing in a critical endangered species habitat. The other was arrested after an unsuccessful attempt to launch. Their equipment was seized and impounded. Federal laws protecting critical natural and cultural resources, restrict powered and non-powered flight into the crater without a permit.
