This romantic experience will leave you with a lifetime of memories!
What To Wear
Air currents move in different directions at different altitudes. Before your flight the pilot will get detailed weather information which will let him/her know the altitudes and directions of these currents.A small helium balloon may be launched from the site to test the air currents at that particular location. The pilot will use this information during the flight to navigate the balloon and find a safe landing site.
Crew members that assisted with setting up the balloon will follow your journey on the ground; this is called a balloon chase. The balloon and chase crew will have radio communication with one another at all times.
Dress appropriately for expected weather conditions. The temperature during flight will be similar to the temperature on the group. Hats and sunglasses are recommended.
Cameras and video cameras are encouraged! A balloon flight is a unique and great adventure you will want to capture. It is recommended to bring a camera or video camera with a neck or wrist strap for safety reasons.
Cell phones are allowed, but must be turned off prior to the launch.
