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:
The balloon seems to stand still in the air while the earth flies past underneath.
— Alberto Santos-Dumont.
Balloonists are borrowing someone's land every time they take off and land, so they are very careful not to disturb or damage someone's property. The landowner is always thanked, and by the time the crew is leaving the landing site, most balloonists are already planning their next flight!

How do you light the burners?
Usually with a striker similar to that used by welders to light their welding torches. Some burners have built-in piezo-electric ignitors. Once lit, a pilot light keeps the fuel burning.
