What a thrill! I recommend going on a clear day for the best panoramas in town, and be sure to check out the parrot they have at the airport! They take you up behind a towplane and release the glider a few thousand feet above the desert floor -- truly spectacular and very quiet (gliders have no engine). You can buy a gift certificate online or just call them up and go straight to the airport.
BEST DATE IF THE SKY'S THE LIMIT Phoenix 2007 - Turf Soaring School
If you really want to bond with that special someone and you and your date collectively weigh less than 300 pounds a glider ride at Lake Pleasant is the adventure for you.Our spies who've tried the experience say it's a great way to get a little bit closer and check out the beauty of mountains, the lake, and clear blue Arizona skies. For $135, you can take the controls. Not quite so confident? There are plenty of options in which you can let the staff do the work and you and your honey can sit back and enjoy the beauty.
