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:
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.
- 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.
Famous Balloon Quote:
How posterity will laugh at us, one way or other! If half a dozen break their necks, and balloonism is exploded, we shall be called fools for having imagined it could be brought to use: if it should be turned to account, we shall be ridiculed for having doubted.
— Horace Walpole, letter to Horace Mann, 24 June 1785.
The burner is positioned above the passenger's heads and produces a huge flame to heat the air inside the envelope. It is fueled by propane. The envelope is the colorful fabric bag that holds the hot air. When the air inside the envelope is heated, the balloon rises. To descend, the air in the envelope is allowed to cool and the balloon becomes heavier than air. The pilot has complete control of the up-and-down movements since he controls the heat in the envelope.

What if you have to go to the bathroom?
Pre-planning is the key! Since flights average about an hour or so, pre-planning pays off in this regard. There are no bathrooms aboard the balloon.
