Can we fly at a balloon festival?
Check with your local balloon company to see if you can get your balloon ride during a nearby festival. Flying at a festival is a unique experience, and is one that you don't want to miss if possible.
Each festival has their own rules, and many do not allow paid passenger rides for several reasons, including FAA restrictions or insurance concerns. Some festivals, however, not only allow passenger flights but encourage spectators to fly by selling balloon rides at the festival.
Preplanning is the key - you'll want to know well in advance if you can fly at the balloon festival you plan to attend.
Famous Balloon Quote:
The balloon seems to stand still in the air while the earth flies past underneath.
— Alberto Santos-Dumont.
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.

When you call a company for a balloon ride, ask how long the pilot has been flying. Ask if they have ever had any accidents or injuries. It is also prudent to ask if they company carries liability and accident insurance for their passengers.
