Private morning and afternoon flights cost the same, although, afternoon flights are limited to 6 or 7 passengers depending on passenger weight and ambient temperature. Balloons carry more weight when ambient temperatures are cooler, like early mornings. DUE TO WINDS THAT PICK UP DURING THE DAY, AFTERNOON FLIGHTS ARE CANCELLED MORE OFTEN THAN MORNING FLIGHTS. I recommend keeping the afternoon flights as a backup in case the morning flight's weather isn't ideal. (little trick....put your alarm far away from your bed and JUST GET UP :-)

FAQ's

Q: Are we at the mercy of the wind?

A: We are able to control the ‘up and down’ of the balloon and we can rotate like a globe. The wind does play a large factor in where the balloon flies. This is why we do intense wind checks so that we can plan our route and take off depending on where we want to land. ​

Q: What time do we meet?

A: Meet times vary depending on the day of your flight. The best ballooning weather is early morning, when it’s cooler and winds are calm. We meet an hour and half before take off. We need this time to sign waivers, do the safety briefing and inflate the balloon. Typically, plan to be at the meeting area at between 5:30am and 6:30am depending on the time of year. We will confirm the meeting time with you the day before. 

Q: Is it going to be cold?

A: Dress warm. When you wake up, open your front door, feel the outside temperature and dress accordingly. When its cold, gloves are nice. You can always take layers off. There is also a fairly large flame above your head that might keep you a tad warmer. Bring a hat to shield your head from the heat of the burners, especially tall bold passegers. 

Q: Are landings hard?

A: Landing are soft, and comfortable when there is no wind, which is why we meet so early in the morning. In the event that the wind does pick up we’ll do a standard high wind landing, during which the basket will drag a bit before stopping and perhaps tilt over. We’ll brief you how to handle a high wind landing and the basket tilting over. As long as you follow the safety instructions, you’ll probably just end up have a big laugh. High wind landings do not happen often, but have standard procedures to make handling them comfortable. 

Q: How many people will the basket fit?

A: We have different size baskets for 3, 6 or 8 passengers. The amount of people a balloon can lift changes with ambient temperatures. Mid-winter mornings our large balloon can lift 8 passengers. Early spring mornings that same balloon will only lift 6 passengers. 

Q: We have a larger group than 8 passengers. Can we make that happen?

A: Yes. You can split your group up and we can fly separate flights. The group members not in the balloon will be in the chase vehicle which follows the balloon wherever it may land. An adventure on its own!
