Enjoying Balloon excursions is something the entire family can enjoy, but it is also a very popular way to celebrate a birthday! When you speak with the pilot you are thinking about riding with, don't forget to ask how many passengers will be on the flight.
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 experience!
Be sure to bring a camera and plenty of film!
You'll be surprised at how many pictures you take before, during and after your flight. Bring more film or memory than you think you'll use. Once you're in the air and snapping away you sure don't want to be surprised by running out!
You can bring cameras for still or video, and we suggest you carry them in a protective case. Your pilot may ask you to put your cameras away during landing to make sure there are no objects that could fly out of your hand and hurt someone. Once you're on the ground you can start shooting again.
Famous Balloon Quote:
The balloon seems to stand still in the air while the earth flies past underneath. — Alberto Santos-Dumont.
Even if the pilot happens to land in the same field twice (which doesn't happen often) the winds will probably be different. This means the take off and or landing will have something different that needs to happen to help make it a safe flight.
