Your Adventure... What to expect Hot Air Ballooning is an outdoor sport and activity. While it does not require any
special physical requirements, You MUST be able to get in and out of the basket
without assistance! Morning flights are just after
sunrise and afternoon flights are a few hours before sunset when winds
are light and the air is stable.Plan for your balloon adventure to take about 3 hours or so.The time spent in the air is
approximately one hour. The flight length is dependent on
weather, direction of flight and available landing sites. Meeting at the
time designated is crucial, as there are other riders and crew you may
inconvenience by being late. A suitable launch site may be a 15 or 20 minute drive.
You MUST be able to get in and out of the basket
without (or very limited) assistance!
AFTER THE FLIGHT (Amenities):In keeping with ballooning tradition, upon landing
we pack up and then offer a bottle of champagne and a thank you to
the landowner. Our guests are treated to a champagne ceremony (sparkling
cider is also available upon request,) refreshments (cheese, fruit,
pastries, crackers and the like,) flight certificates and stories and
then are driven back to their cars with a wonderful memory.
Your friends are welcome to come along to watch or assist
the launch, chase and recovery and to join in your festivities, but our
transportation space is limited and following along in their own
vehicles may be necessary. Donít forget to bring your camera and four
times as much film as you expect to use.Both still and video cameras are appropriate, our crew will be
happy to take pictures of you, but we canít be responsible for your
HOW TO DRESS:Comfortably!Walking shoes and long pants are preferable and whatever is

etc., but please donít bring large items such as satchels and large
handbags as thereís no room on board and they must be left in the chase
