SAFETY! - We have very safe, conscientious pilots and a very safety oriented Balloon Crew Team. Our pilots follow all FAA regulations and DO NOT fly in unsafe situation and our Balloon Crew Team obeys all traffic laws. We attend at least one Safety Seminar Annually!
I'm very proud to honestly say that we are 100% accident free before and since we've started our business in 2001. Your safety is our number one goal!!!
All of our flights are NON-SMOKING flights! We carry 40 gallon of LPG (propane) on board. We only want one fire and that's from the burners.
Most of our flights ARE "private flights". However, if you choose a Traditional Flight, you could meet and make new friends to join us on our adventure if they booked the same time. We can carry up to 800-900 lbs - 4-6 passengers (plus the pilot). This all depends on the outside temperatures at the time of the flight. We can even accommodate 2 or 3 more private balloons. If you invite more people along! (Very picturesque!)
Probably somewhere (...they're out to sell lots of rides, we're out to sell you an adventure!). Our belief is that when you're out to make a buck, there will be sacrifices; and safety is one we're just NOT willing to sacrifice.
Heck yea, who wouldn't want a discount, but this is one of those activities in life where it may be prudent to AVOID the "Low Bidder," ...for obvious reasons. We don't play the price "matching game."
We want you to know that we price our Flights on a sustainable basis, so that our equipment is maintained ABOVE the minimums required by the FAA; and our Pilots and Balloon Crew Team are improving their skills and training levels on a continuing basis.
