Ballooning is not an inexpensive activity. My wife considers it to be a very expensive "Hobby"! That reality is driven by the fact that, when you join us for your Traditional Shared (Sparkling Cider/Champagne) or a Private Flight, we will be arriving with about $80K worth of equipment (including an FAA Registered Aircraft), as well as an FAA Certified Hot Air Balloon Pilot and 2-3 skilled Balloon Crew Team members. AEBF is fully insured. And all of our equipment is annually inspected and properly maintained and stored.
But considering everything that goes into making a Flight happen, ours is amazingly affordable. As so many enthusiastic guests have told us:
"the flight was beautiful, ...we'll be doing this again, ...it was like we were never moving and the landscape was passing us by!"
There is no age limit with children but they should be at least 48 inches tall , stand/hold-on during landing, and follow Pilot instructions very well!!!. Young adults under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian during the flight. See Eligibility and Restrictions.
Sorry, no senior or military discounts as this time. We do thank you for your service! We DO however, offer a small discounts for any of our return passengers, or "frequent flyers". And we've had a few.
*Prices are subject to change without warning or update to this site, but they haven't changed in quite a while.

Paying by Credit Card:
