Is Balloon Flight Safe?
Absolutely! While there is an element of risk in everything we do in life, flying in a balloon is inherently safe for several reasons:
Pilots are highly trained and licensed by the F.A.A.
Balloons are registered aircraft and must be regularly inspected by an FAA licensed facility.
Balloons fly only when the weather is the best. You won't find anyone flying a balloon when weather conditions make it unsafe to do so.
It is low and slow! There are few moving parts in a balloon - it is the simplest form of flight.
If you have any specific concerns, talk to the company you are considering flying with. They can tell you how long they've been flying and what their safety record is. They can also answer any specific questions you might have about your flight.
Famous Balloon Quote:
Build lightness in. — Alberto Santos-Dumont.
Most balloons have a crew of between 3 to 6 people. Most balloon crews are volunteer, and do not get paid. For most of us, it is a hobby. It's how we work off the stresses of the week, and get together to have a good time with an ever-changing hobby.
