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:
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.
- 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.
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
In their simplest form, balloon competitions score how close a pilot can get to a pre-determined target. Small weighted markers are dropped at the target. The challenge is to be the closest to the target, but unlike all other forms of flying, balloon pilots do not have direct control of their direction of flight. The balloon simply drifts with the wind.
