Choose from Three Options

  • $119 for a tandem discovery hang-gliding flight for one ($169 value)
  • $174 for a tandem sunset hang-gliding flight for one ($349 value)
  • $348 for a tandem sunset hang-gliding flight for two ($698 value)

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.
