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 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.
