How do you steer a balloon?
Balloons simply float with the wind. The pilot can control the balloon's altitude to find a wind going in the desired direction, but you cannot fly upwind or crosswind.
Preflight planning insures the pilot knows which way the balloon will be traveling, and the pilot makes sure there are plenty of suitable landing sites downwind. You'll be amazed how the pilot is able to steer the balloon during your balloon ride!
Famous Balloon Quote:
Build lightness in. — Alberto Santos-Dumont.
Balloon pilots must be licensed by the F.A.A., just like pilots of other aircraft like airplanes and helicopters. The balloon is also a licensed aircraft, and requires regular safety inspections performed by a licenced repair facility.
