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.
Lighter-than-air was the first aviation, and is still the choice for many pilots more than 200 years later. You don't need an airport or a runway. If you own a balloon, you don't need a hangar or even a tie-down space, just a corner of your garage. Take off from your back field, or the parking lot at the general store (with permission, of course). Drift quietly along, experiencing little or no sensation of movement of height. Land on a freshly cut hayfield, or the softball diamond before the players even get out of bed.

The balloon is inflated using a gasoline powered fan. Once the balloon is fully packed with air, the pilot turms on the burner and heats the air in the balloon, causing it to rise. Passengers then board the aircraft, and your flight begins!
