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!

Scratch another thing off the old bucket list; we went gliding. Arizona Soaring operates out of the Estrella Sailport, a private airport located 20 miles south of the City of Phoenix. So close to home. We should have done this long ago. Our glider pilot,...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
