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.

Sonora Wings

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.

Customer Reviews

Amazing , Great flight experience. After soaring to 2000 ft my instructor realized that the Gopro was not working so he instructed the plane which was towing us in the sky to help us land and after fixing the Gopro we made another flight soaring upto 4300 ft altitude. so i got two flights for the price of one also my instructor told me that we believe in providing the service we committed. Definitely recommend "Sonora Wings" to everyone. If you are in phoenix and around pls visit them for an experience of your lifetime. Friendly staff , value for money and great flight experience.☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
