What makes our adventures unique?
This is not a shared-basket ride with other passengers. To keep our flights personal and unique, we carry two adults (or two adults and a child). Our personalized attention is what sets us apart from other balloon ride companies.
Flying safely since 1982, your pilot and crew will ensure that your safety is paramount!
What to expect:
Your pilot will contact you the day before your flight to confirm the meet time and provide directions to the launch site. Upon arrival, you will meet your pilot and crew, receive a safety briefing and prepare for your flight. Feel free to enjoy complementary refreshments while the pilot and crew prepare for your adventure. Many people enjoy participating in the inflation and deflation of the balloon, and you are welcome to help the crew if you wish.
Once aloft, the pilot maneuvers the balloon by changing altitude to “steer” the balloon while you float along and enjoy the scenery. Upon landing, the chase crew meets the balloon, packs it up and transports you back to the launch site, where you will enjoy the traditional post-flight champagne toast (sparkling cider is available upon request) and a continental breakfast. During the celebration you will be presented with a Certificate of Flight and custom etched toasting glass.
Actual flight time is approximately one hour, but you should allow 3-4 hours for the total experience.
Hot air ballooning is extremely weather dependent. Safety is always our first consideration and the final decision to fly or not is usually made on the field. If conditions are not suitable for flying that day, we will work with you to reschedule your flight on a mutually convenient date.
What to wear:
Dress comfortably, preferably in layers. Wear long pants, sturdy shoes, sneakers or boots – NO open-toe shoes, sandals or flip-flops.
There is no age limit on who can fly, but you must be agile enough to climb in and out of the basket and stand for the duration of the flight.
Enjoy your adventure, where you want. We currently launch from these locations
Children must be at least four feet tall and accompanied by an adult. Sorry, but we cannot take up pregnant women . We suggest that if you have any concerns, contact your family doctor.
All passengers will be required to sign (in person) a Release Waiver prior to the adventure
We require a 72 hour notice of cancellation. If your reservation is not cancelled prior to this time, or you are a no-show on the day of flight, you wil be charged the full amount of the flight.
If your flight is cancelled due to inclement weather or other circumstances beyond our control, you will not be charged, and we will work with you to reschedule for another date.
Gratuities are always appreciated by the pilot and crew, at your discretion, of course .
