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:

  • 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.
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.

Famous Balloon Quote:

These vehicles can serve no use until we can guide them. I had rather now find a medicine that can cure an asthma.
Dr. Samuel Johnson
Hot air balloons use plain old air for lift. By heating the air inside the balloon, the pilot makes that air less dense (lighter) than the outside air, and the balloon rises. As the internal air cools, the balloon becomes heavier, and descends if the pilot doesn't add more heat.

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.
