What you'll do
Your experience will start in the days leading up to your flight as we look at the upcoming weather patterns. Hot air balloons need calm winds and clear skies to make the experience safe and enjoyable. Once we have determined that it is safe to fly, we will designate a launch location and meeting time. On site, you will help the ground crew set up and inflate the hot air balloon before taking off on a unique flying adventure. In the air you will get the chance to pilot the balloon under the close guidance of a certified hot air balloon instructor. Don't worry, there will be plenty of opportunities for pictures and enjoyment of this once-in-a-lifetime adventure. During a post-flight celebration you can discuss next steps in becoming a certified hot air balloon pilot, or just listen to the stories of past ballooning adventures with our dedicated pilots and crew.
I am a hot air balloon lifer, having grown up in a flying family. In 2015 I earned my pilot certificate and decided to make it my passion to share the joys of hot air ballooning with the world! I want everyone to experience the thrills and relaxation of lighter-than-air flight and come away with a story that they will want to recount over and over.
