What should you wear during your flight?
Ballooning is not a formal occasion, so heals, dresses and suits are not appropriate. Dress like you would for an outdoor hike. Comfortable shoes (no open-toed shoes or sandals, please), long pants and layered clothing during the cooler months are recommended. Balloons don't normally land at airports, so you'll probably be standing in an open field after landing. Dress appropriately for the area of the country you're flying in.
Be sure to check with the company you are flying with for their clothing rules.
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
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.

One thing that makes ballooning difficult for the ground crew is one of the same things that make it exciting: the weather. The winds are almost always changing. Depending on what phase of the flight is being accomplished when those winds change means the ground crew must adapt their methods to deal with those changes. This is exactly why hot air ballooning is so exciting. Every flight is different! Each flight is truely an adventure.
