Balloon rides are a great gift!
Most balloon companies offer gift certificates so you can give a flight to your favorite person. Certificates are a very thoughtful gift since the recipient can schedule their balloon ride themselves. Certificates also work well when you are in a different part of the country. You may be in San Diego, California, but you can buy a balloon ride gift certificate for someone in Nebraska.
Some company websites allow you to purchase and print a gift certificate instantly, while others may require a phone call to make a purchase.
When shopping for a balloon flight gift certificate be sure to check the length of time the certificate is valid for. Be sure it is good for at least a year.
Famous Balloon Quote:
The winds have welcomed you with softness,
The sun has greeted you with it's warm hands,
You have flown so high and so well,
That God has joined you in laughter,
And set you back gently into
The loving arms of Mother Earth.
— Anon, known as 'The Baloonists Prayer', believed to have been adapted from an old Irish sailors' prayer.
What happens if a bird flys into a balloon?
It would likely bounce off! Even though a bird wouldn't get that close, it would do no harm to the balloon or the bird. The envelope fabric is much tougher than it might appear. It is possible to fly a balloon with a hole large enough for a man to go through as long as the hole is not at the top of the envelope.

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.
