Searching for Ballon rides in Norwalk? Welcome to the end of your search! Finding a pilot to provide Ballon rides is easy. Additionally, you can check our Balloon Ride Directory, or look in the local yellow pages.
Enjoying Ballon rides is something everyone can enjoy, but it is also a very popular way to get married! When you speak with the company you are considering flying with, be sure to ask how many others will be in the basket.
When it is time for your charter, your ride company will offer to let you help with the assembly and inflation of the balloon. Go ahead and do it - it adds to the entire experience!
Deal direct with the company you fly with:
Our guide is unique since it lists the actual ride companies in a particular area. This offers many advantages over the 'Prepaid' ride companies.
First, you can visit with the company and find out all you need to know, including their specific terms and practices. Secondly, when you book directly with the flight company, you know exactly where you'll fly, how long the flight will last, and what is included. Our directory also allows you to comparison shop when there are multiple operators in an area.
The companies that advertise 'hundreds of locations nationwide' usually contract with a single operator in an area and pay them only a fraction of what you paid for your flight. Passengers that come from these 'aggregators' are used to fill vacant spots on existing flights, and it may be more difficult to actually schedule your flight if all seats are full during the most desirable times of year. As with most things, you get what you pay for!
Famous Balloon Quote:
The balloon seems to stand still in the air while the earth flies past underneath.
— Alberto Santos-Dumont.
How do you become part of a chase crew? You can look up in the sky and follow the next balloon you see until it lands. Please allow the crew to pack the balloon away before you approach the basket. Then all you have to do is tell one of the crew that you are interested in ballooning. You will more than likely be directed to the pilot, who will either snatch you up for their own crew, then and there, or place you in contact with someone who can find you a home.

What are balloon envelopes made of?
Rip-stop nylon is the most common material. Polyester and other fabrics are sometimes used. The lower portions around the opening are usually made from a fire resistant material like Nomex, similar to what race car drivers and firemen wear to protect themselves.
