Is Balloon Flight Safe?

Absolutely! While there is an element of risk in everything we do in life, flying in a balloon is inherently safe for several reasons:

  • Pilots are highly trained and licensed by the F.A.A.
  • Balloons are registered aircraft and must be regularly inspected by an FAA licensed facility.
  • Balloons fly only when the weather is the best. You won't find anyone flying a balloon when weather conditions make it unsafe to do so.
  • It is low and slow! There are few moving parts in a balloon - it is the simplest form of flight.
If you have any specific concerns, talk to the company you are considering flying with. They can tell you how long they've been flying and what their safety record is. They can also answer any specific questions you might have about your flight.

Famous Balloon Quote:

The balloon seems to stand still in the air while the earth flies past underneath.

How long do balloons last?
Depending on the care it is given, a balloon envelope may last 500 or more flying hours. Considering that most sport pilots fly from 35-75 hours a year, balloons do last a long time.

Sunrise and evening? But I want to go flying at noontime, so I won't have to get up so early. Sorry-midday is best left for glider pilots. Balloons usually fly within two or three hours of sunrise and sunset, when the winds are calmest and conditions most stable. During the middle of the day, upper level pressure gradient winds mix down to the surface. In addition, the development of thermals which the glider pilots love can be highly dangerous for the balloonist. Balloonists try to be on the ground no later than three hours after sunrise, and not launch more than that amount of time before sunset. Time of year makes much less difference than time of day.
