What is it like flying in a balloon?
You'll be amazed the first time you go for a balloon ride! The feeling is unlike anything else. It is very calm and serene, and not frightening at all. The view is spectacular, and depending on the location of your balloon flight, you're likely to see local wildlife as never before. It is very quiet except for the occasional WHOOOSH of the burner, and you can talk to people on the ground!
The 360 degree view is spectacular as you drift silently above the world. You may brush gently through the treetops or soar thousands of feet above the earth; either way you'll be thrilled at the peace and serenity of your adventure.
Famous Balloon Quote:
The best way of travel, however, if you aren't in any hurry at all, if you don't care where you are going, if you don't like to use your legs, if you don't want to be annoyed at all by any choice of directions, is in a balloon. In a balloon, you can decide only when to start, and usually when to stop. The rest is left entirely to nature.
— William Pene du Bois, 'The Twenty-one Balloons.'
The basket of a balloon is commonly made of wicker, which is used because it is lightweight and very strong. The baskets are made in different sizes to match the size of the balloon. When modern ballooning was born in the 1960s, aluminum and fiberglas materials were tried, but they were not as flexible.
