Harnessed together, a certified instructor and pupil jog 20 yards, towing a paraglider until it lifts them into the air. Paragliders soar at elevations of up to 3,000 feet with views of desert landscapes and cacti stampedes. Finally, they glide back down to earth at the end of their 20- to 25-minute journey.

Paraglider Rides

Using the sky as his classroom, certified paraglider Sean Buckner introduces his pupils to elevated views of desert and mountain terrain. Sean travels to various sites, where he uses a winch towing system to launch tandem flights in most wind conditions. Beneath the glider's elliptical shape, Sean teaches basic skills or the art of thermal flying, which calls fliers to hunt for air lifts, soar at higher altitudes, and make awkward small talk with hawks.
