No, but I would sure like to know. I'm going to be moving to Tucson next year.

try flagstaffflyers.com
They show some good flying sites. Probably all but Green's Peak are within an hour or two of Sedona. Most sites in Arizona are foam-only because landing zones are usually rocky or non-existent. Green's Peak is an exception.

a few hours north and you have the grand canyon. but I think the dnr will get all sorts of wild.

I hooked up with a great guy named Dawson who took me north west of Flagstaff to the cinder cones, we had 40mph with gusts to 45 and my little traveling glider got pretty busted up. I then took a trip up Schnebly Hill road and had a great flight in the most scenic place I've seen, easily as beautifull as the Grand Canyon. Yesterday we spent the day out at Moromon Lake, even had a couple of bald eagles fly with us. I'm home today and have some work to do to be ready to travel again, but Dawson really showed me some nice spots.

My little traveling sloper now has flown;

Charlotte, NC
The Hump, Blue Ridge Parkway, NC
Columbia, PA
Seattle, WA
Everret, WA
Abbacos, Bahamas
Merrit Island, FL
Cocoa Beach, FL
Flagstaff, AZ
Sedona, AZ
Mormon Lake, AZ
