Searching for Balloon flights in Rockford? This is to the right place! Finding a pilot to provide Balloon flights is easy. In addition, you can check additional pages here, or look in the yellow pages.
Enjoying Balloon flights is something everyone can participate in, but it is also a great way to celebrate an anniversary! When you speak with the ride provider you are thinking about riding with, don't forget to ask how many others will be flying with you.
When it is time for your adventure, 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:
Build lightness in. — Alberto Santos-Dumont.
What are balloon envelopes made of? Rip-stop nylon is the most common material. Polyester and other fabrics are sometimes used. The lower portions around the opening are usually made from a fire resistant material like Nomex, similar to what race car drivers and firemen wear to protect themselves.
