We are flying the Fox and receiving aerobatic instruction from one of the best, Jason. Jason and his staff are super friendly, professional and help make for a memorable experience. This is the perfect place to start learning how to fly!

One of North America's primier soaring sites and soaring school. Very professional staff lead by Jason. Betty and Nancy at the telephone and desk will answer all your questions. Just do it!

I always wanted to try this, flying for business is a grind, but this sets your soul free. Arizona soaring was about 40 minutes out of Phoenix down a dusty trail. Pretty rustic would describe the place. But the planes are clean and very well...More

I purchased a Groupon for a glider ride at Arizona Soaring as a gift for my wife's birthday...she had a WONDERFUL time. Peter was her instructor and he was so informative, patient and nice. I would highly recommend the experience and Peter.

This was a spectacular experience out in the desert. This was less than an hour drive south of Phoenix. I went for the ‘aerobatic’ experience, which I highly recommend. Surprisingly, there are no forms/waivers to sign before participating in this. However, you do have to...More
