Once you arrive to the field, our crew gets to work unloading and preparing the aircraft while passengers are briefed and take photos.
The balloon takes 20 minutes to prepare for flight and once ready, passengers are requested to board.
The flight is approximately one hour, determined by weather and available landing locations. Upon landing, our ground crew will pack the balloon while passengers and pilot celebrate the flight with complimentary champagne, light snacks and a story about the origin of hot air ballooning.
