What is it like flying in a balloon?
You'll be amazed the first time you go for a balloon ride! The feeling is unlike anything else. It is very calm and serene, and not frightening at all. The view is spectacular, and depending on the location of your balloon flight, you're likely to see local wildlife as never before. It is very quiet except for the occasional WHOOOSH of the burner, and you can talk to people on the ground!
The 360 degree view is spectacular as you drift silently above the world. You may brush gently through the treetops or soar thousands of feet above the earth; either way you'll be thrilled at the peace and serenity of your adventure.
Famous Balloon Quote:
How posterity will laugh at us, one way or other! If half a dozen break their necks, and balloonism is exploded, we shall be called fools for having imagined it could be brought to use: if it should be turned to account, we shall be ridiculed for having doubted.
— Horace Walpole, letter to Horace Mann, 24 June 1785.
How do you steer a balloon?
Balloons simply float with the wind. The pilot can control the balloon's altitude to find a wind going in the desired direction, but you cannot fly upwind or crosswind. Preflight planning insures the pilot knows which way the balloon will be traveling, and the pilot makes sure there are plenty of suitable landing sites downwind.
