How long do balloon rides last?
Most balloon flights are in the air for 30 minutes to one hour, but you should plan on being out with the balloon team for three hours or more. First, the pilot must determine the launch site based on current wind direction. The chase crew will follow the balloon during the flight and will be there when the balloon lands. the balloon is packed up and passengers and crew are returned to the original meeting place.
Be sure to check with the company you are flying with to see how long your flight is expected to last.
Famous Balloon Quote:
Build lightness in.
— Alberto Santos-Dumont.
A balloon team is often a family affair. Crew people come in all shapes and sizes: singles, married, and entire families can be found. Pick any combination of these types of folks, and they are here too. There are crew people ranging from new born babies, to folks well into their 80's still enjoying the sport. The only special skill needed for the balloon ground crew is a willingness to learn and ask questions. Some tasks require a fair amount of physical strength, but don't worry, there are even more tasks that do not.

Why is the angle of the sun important?
The sun is the source of wind, because it heats the earth unevenly. Sunlight falls directly on the equator, for example. The North Pole receives weaker, slanted rays of sunlight. Clouds may keep one area cool while another heats up. Water and land heat up at different rates. Hot air is lighter than cool air, so it rises. As hot air rises, cool air slides in to replace it. The result: wind. It isn't safe to fly during the daytime when different pockets of air are rising and falling.
