Searching for Balloon excursions in Evansville? You have found to the right place! Finding a ride provider to provide Balloon excursions is easy. Additionally, you can check our Balloon Ride Directory, or look in the yellow pages.
Enjoying Balloon excursions is something anyone can $do, but it is also a popular way to go on a date! When you speak with the company you are considering flying with, be sure to ask how many other passengers will be aboard the balloon.
When it is time for your charter, 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 fun!
Why can't I get a balloon ride in the middle of the day?
Balloons fly early in the morning, right after sunrise and late in the day, right before sunset. This is when the wind is calmest since the sun is low in the sky. The wind is generally too unpredictable, with severe up-and down-drafts, during the middle of the day. It isn't safe to offer balloon rides when the wind is unstable.
Famous Balloon Quote:
I have known today a magnificent intoxication. I have learnt how it feels to be a bird. I have flown. Yes I have flown. I am still astonished at it, still deeply moved.
— Le Figaro, 1908.
How old do you have to be to fly a balloon?
To obtain a Private Pilot Certificate in the USA you must be 16 years old. And would you believe that there are balloonists flying in their 80's!

Every task the crew performs has a reason for why it is done a certain way, and once that reason is discovered, it makes perfect sense. The trick to learning is to ask questions. Lots of questions. I have met many pilots, and have assisted with the set up of every major brand of balloon. I have asked hundreds of questions. I have yet to have any pilot treat a question like it was silly of me to ask.
