Bucket List Glider Flights: Soaring Flights

This is one of those bucket list kind of blogs. How does a bird’s eye view of much of southern Arizona sound? Soaring Flight’s experienced pilot will take you or your friend high above the earth in their sleek self-launching glider, starting and ending at Tucson International Airport. You will have an exciting soaring adventure, better than you ever imagined.


You will enjoy a smooth, peaceful, beautiful flight with spectacular views of the Catalina, Rincon, and Santa Rita mountains, Saguaro National Parks along with the Davis-Monthan AFB aircraft "bone yard", Native American sacred mountains and often spot elusive wild horses.

The motorized glider is equipped with dual controlled joy-sticks. Under the direction of the pilot you or your friend may actually do part of the flying if you or they wish. Almost everyone does take the stick even if only for a short time.

Surprise your spouse, sweetheart, family and friends with a unique gift. Or splurge a little on yourself for a once in a lifetime experience. Soaring Flight offers three options. Their Fun Flight Glider ride costs $169. This option offers 30 to 35 minutes of glider flight time.
