Experience a tandem introduction to the skies during a breathtaking 3,000 ft Tandem Hang Gliding Flight over Maricopa, Arizona. You will meet with your Certified Instructor at the Phoenix Regional Airport, just 40 miles south of Phoenix, and learn to fly like a bird during this exciting adventure.

Following a brief orientation, you and your Instructor will be towed by a powerful ultralight 3,000 feet into the blue Arizona sky.
