WEATHER CONFIRMATION

 Weather is always a factor with ballooning and for safety reasons, the conditions do have to be ideal.

  • A few days before your flight (normally on Monday) you will get an email from us about your flight with a weather update, meeting location, balance due and other needed details.
  • If the weather doesn’t look good or we need to change the meeting location we will contact you the day of your scheduled flight with update information.

WHAT TO BRING

  • Feel free to bring handheld camera equipment.
  • Due to limited space in the basket, we recommend handbags; backpacks and large camera bags remain on the ground. The baskets are designed to carry passengers, not luggage.

 

WHAT TO WEAR

  • Passengers should wear outdoor clothing that is comfortable for the particular season and the time of the flight.
  • Dress for being in fields (for landing) by wearing full shoes or boots and long pants. Please NO open-toed shoes, high heels or skirts.
  • Morning flights may encounter dew or wet covered ground. For winter and cool weather flying, we recommend wearing layers of clothes. Put on as many as needed to remain comfortable. You can always remove a layer or two. It will not be noticeably colder in the balloon.
  • If temperatures are comfortable on the ground, you should be comfortable in the air.
