HOW DOES IT FEEL TO FLY IN A BALLOON?

It’s as smooth as silk, and a little magical.  Once aloft, there is no feeling of movement whatsoever.  You’ll be floating with the breeze.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Dress comfortably as you would for any outdoor adventure.  Sunglasses and a hat are great.  You will need to climb into and out of a wicker basket, so wear sturdy shoes.  No sandals, high heels, or open-toed shoes.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

There are lots of photo opportunities, so bring your camera and plenty of film.  Video cameras are permitted.

HOW MANY PEOPLE FIT IN A BALLOON?

Groups of any size are welcome.  The maximum number of people in each balloon is limited by weight.

WHAT TIME ARE THE FLIGHTS?

We fly year-round, seven days a week, on a weather-permitting basis.  Actual morning flight schedules vary according to time of sunrise.

IS BALLOONING SAFE?

Safety is our first and foremost concern.  We fly the most modern and advanced equipment in the industry.  The balloons we fly are maintained in accordance with requirements established by the FAA.  Each balloon is regularly inspected and before every flight, we take precautions to ensure the entire balloon system is functioning properly.  We feature dual fuel systems and burners in all our craft, for your ultimate safety.

ARE THE PILOTS LICENSED?

Yes.  All pilots are fully certified by the FAA as commercial pilots qualified to carry passengers in balloons.  Your pilot is highly skilled with hundreds of hours of flying experience and extensive knowledge of weather and flying conditions.

WHAT IF I HAVE A FEAR OF HEIGHTS?

Many people who have a fear of heights have flown with us and enjoyed it.  We do everything we can to make sure your flight is peaceful and relaxing.  However, if after take-off you feel uncomfortable, we’ll bring you back down.
