11. What happens if I can't make my flight?
If issues arise and you will not be able to make your flight, we ask that you
give us 72-hours notice if at all possible.
12. What conditions prohibit a flight?
Ballooning is strictly a fair weather sport. Assuming good visibility, the key
consideration for a safe flight is wind speed. Generally a launch will not
take place if wind speeds exceed 8 mph. The reason? High winds can
cause unsafe conditions when the pilot has to land the balloon. Rain,
surrounding storm systems or high winds are typical weather conditions
that will prompt us to postpone and reschedule a flight.
13. How do you make your "fly/no-fly" weather decision?
We have access to 'up to the minute' weather and wind forecasting,
provided specifically for flight related activities. On rare occasion you may
note that our reports vary from radio or television weather forecasts.
Please understand, due to the specific nature of our wind and weather
requirements, we must make our "fly"/"no fly" decisions based on the
weather reports provided to us by these sources.
14. Afraid of heights? No worries!
More than 85% of our passengers consider themselves afraid of heights in some fashion or another. For those that are adventurous enough to take
the first step, 99.9% of them will come back to the ground and ask us when they can fly again! The reason is simple, there is no turbulence, no swaying,no wind and no motion what so ever
15. Can we bring a camera?
16. Can our friends or family follow us while we fly?
Yes, you can bring someone along that just wants to watch the balloon set
up, flight and landing. We have limited room in our chase vehicle. Any
additional persons will have to follow our chase vehicle in their own car. If
you intend on following for the entire flight be advised our chase crews top
priority is the balloon and passengers so we simply ask that you keep up to them, which we admit can be difficult to do sometimes!
17. Are your pilots licensed?
Yes! All of our pilots are commercially certified through the Federal Aviation Administration. Balloon pilots must go through the same process as an airplane pilot.
18. Do I have to sign a waiver?
Yes, each person flying in the balloon will need to sign a waiver and minors (under 18) must have written parental or legal guardian consent to fly in the balloon.
