Guest Review Jan:   My gliding trip was the BEST! I especially enjoyed our attempts to fly along with a hawk. I highly recommend this experience for locals as well as visitors to Tucson! 
Guest Review Feb:   My girlfriend purchased a gift certificate for me and just came back home after almost an hour of soaring. We lifted off and found 3 separate thermals about 10 miles from the airport. I got a chance to fly the gilder. It was as fun and a great learning experience. We could see south well into Mexico, north all the way past Picacho Peak, west past Kitt Peak and east past the Catalinas. Although l live in the Tucson area for over 20 years, I never realized all there was to see. I strongly recommend this adventure and it is close by at Tucson Airport. 
Guest Review April:   This was such an amazing experience! Phil was the best!!! He has so much knowledge and passion for flying... The day was perfect and the views were amazing! I definitely recommend it!
Guest Review November: Had an awesome time! I don't usually write reviews but this was totally worth it! We took off out of TIA and 10 minutes later we were gliding over Mt Lemmon at 10 thousand feet! Phil was very knowledegable about the area and answered all of my questions. I have flown in several small planes and this cannot compare. When you shut down the engine it's so peaceful you can talk at a normal voice and just take it all in. Views were spectacular. Was well worth the money.
Guest Review, Latest: Since I was a very little boy, I had dreams of flying through the air and my grandmother made me a book about me flying on the back of a bird. They thought I was having an out-of-body experience and were helping me understand... so all my life I have thought if there was such a thing as reincarnation I want to come back as an eagle, like a bird of prey... Today was the closest I came to the dream. Thank You.
