Payson Scenic Tours

Scenic Tours from Payson, AZ, the Home Base of Sky King Soaring™


A delightful 12- minute flight heading northwest over Tonto Natural Bridge, back southeast circling over Payson, then an engine-off glide returning to the airport. Great photo opportunity for your home and the beautiful Rim!


Penny’s Favorite

Explore even more northward toward Strawberry, Pine and the Mogollon Rim on this 22-minute journey. You will see remnants of the Zane Grey cabin as well as a great overview of the lush ozone-free Tonto National Forest. You will soar to silent altitudes and glide back engine-off.


Flying Crown

Our most requested! Come dance “the skies on laughter-silvered wings1.”

A grand 35-40 minute adventure combining Songbird with Penny’s Favorite and more! Silent gliding (October-February) and soaring like an eagle (March-September…or whenever favorable conditions exist). Every landing is engine-off and glassy smooth when you fly with Sky King Soaring.
