The call of the wild is like a call from an elderly grandparent: though you can’t quite make out what’s being said, you feel better about yourself when you answer. Pick up nature’s phone with this Groupon.

The Deal

After strapping into the hang glider, a plane tows you and your instructor until it reaches an altitude of 2,500 feet. There, you both are released from the plane to ride thermals over Arizona’s Sonoran Desert. Depending on conditions, this scenic flight lasts approximately 20 minutes before the instructor guides you in for a landing. You may choose to upgrade to a 5,000-foot flight for an additional fee.

Sonora Wings Hang Gliding

On tandem flights, Sonora Wings Hang Gliding's instructors, who are certified by the United States Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association, take their customers to soaring altitudes, where they glide like birds over Arizona’s Sonoran Desert. The unique vantage point allows for breathtaking views—wild mustangs running through the desert, distant mountains, and red-tailed hawks that soar within a robotic arm's grasp. To reach these heights, hang gliders are towed behind the company's Dragonfly, a small aircraft specifically designed to launch hang gliders. Sonora Wings Hang Gliding's pilots and instructors take off on these adventures from sunrise to sunset, and they can capture each moment on HD video.
