Ballooning is easy!

There are no age restrictions.
Dress for the season and time of day.
Casual, layered clothing and flat-soled shoes with closed toes are  recommended.

It does not matter how much or how little you weigh. However, when you make your reservation we will ask for an approximate weight for each passenger so we can distribute weight among the balloons according to F.A.A. and manufacturer limitations.

Flights are subject to last minute cancellation due to weather conditions considered adverse to safe ballooning. We do not fly in rain. We do not fly in "moderate" winds. Because your pilot is directly responsible for the flight and is the final authority as to the operation of the balloon, flights are subject to your pilot's discretion. Although hot air ballooning is considered to be one of the safest activities you will be involved with during your stay in the area, our insurer requests that you sign an informational risk assumption document before boarding.

Pregnancy :

Please notify us if a member of your party is pregnant. Additional safety precautions will be observed and boarding will be at the discretion of your pilot. If we mutually decide that the pregnant person should ride in the chase vehicle instead of in the balloon, no charge will be made for the pregnant person's unused fare.






Our balloons are between 75 and 85 feet tall, which is almost 9 stories! They contain from 105,000 to 210,000 cubic feet of air.
(think of a cubic foot as about the size of a basketball)

The gondolas are large enough to accommodate up to 12 passengers and a pilot.
(number of passengers carried per flight is determined by weight)

The envelopes (fabric part) weigh between 250 and 550 lbs. and the baskets weigh from about 500 to around 1200 lbs.
(including burners,fuel tanks and fuel)

The balloons use liquid propane
(just like you use in your barbeque grill at home)
and carry a total of up to 80 gallons. Propane weighs between 4.2 and 4.3 lbs per gallon, so in our biggest balloon, the fuel alone weighs over 320 lbs!











Hot air balloons are federally licensed aircraft, governed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) . A pilot's license is required to operate a balloon, just as it is required to pilot an airplane or helicopter. Our pilots hold commercial pilot's licenses issued by the FAA. Our pilots undergo biennial flight reviews and testing to make sure that they've maintained their skills, and they must also prove that they have flown a required number of flights within the past 90 days.
