When do you fly?
We fly seven days a week, twice a day (at sunrise and within two hours of sunset), weather permitting. Favorable flight conditions include clear skies and gentle breezes.
How long will the flight last?
Most flights will last at least 45 minutes, but may last over an hour depending on the weather, direction of fight, and available landing sites.
What will the temperature be in the balloon?
The temperature will be the same as it is on the ground. We usually don’t fly high enough to reach the colder termperatures aloft.
What should I wear?
You should dress comfortably. We recommend sport clothing and flat-soled shoes. Keep in mind that you will need to climb in and out of the basket. You may wish to wear a hat as some heat will radiate downward from the burner.
May I take a camera or camcorder with me?
Yes and bring plenty of film. And be sure you have fresh batteries. You will have lots of wonderful photo opportunities during the flight.
Can my family and friends come watch me take off?
You may invite your family and friends to see you lift off on your adventure. They may want to join in the chase and watch you land.
