Searching for Balloon excursions in El Monte? Welcome to the page you want! Finding a firm to provide Balloon excursions is easy. Also, you can check our Balloon Ride Directory, or look in your local yellow pages.
Enjoying Balloon excursions is something everyone can $do, but it is also a popular way to go on a date! When you speak with the company you are considering riding with, be sure to ask how many passengers will be on the flight.
When it is time for your ride, your pilot will offer to let you help with the assembly and inflation of the balloon. Go ahead and do it - it adds to the 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 best way of travel, however, if you aren't in any hurry at all, if you don't care where you are going, if you don't like to use your legs, if you don't want to be annoyed at all by any choice of directions, is in a balloon. In a balloon, you can decide only when to start, and usually when to stop. The rest is left entirely to nature.
— William Pene du Bois, 'The Twenty-one Balloons.'
The burner is fueled by propane, and is used by the pilot to heat the air inside the balloon's envelope (the fabric part above the passengers). When the air is heated, the balloon rises.

What are the differences between gas and hot air balloons?
A gas balloon is completely enclosed and is filled with helium or hydrogen. A hot air balloon gets its lift from heating the air within it. The Breitling Orbiter, which flew non-stop around the world in 1999, was a combination gas and hot air balloon.
