Enjoying Balloon rides is something anyone can $do, but it is also a very popular way to celebrate a birthday! When you speak with the firm you are thinking about flying with, don't forget to ask how many other passengers will be on the flight.
When it is time for your charter, your ride company will offer to let you help with the assembly and inflation of the balloon. Go ahead and do it - it adds to the entire experience!
What should you wear during your flight?
Ballooning is not a formal occasion, so heals, dresses and suits are not appropriate. Dress like you would for an outdoor hike. Comfortable shoes (no open-toed shoes or sandals, please), long pants and layered clothing during the cooler months are recommended. Balloons don't normally land at airports, so you'll probably be standing in an open field after landing. Dress appropriately for the area of the country you're flying in.
Be sure to check with the company you are flying with for their clothing rules.
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
Hot air balloons use plain old air for lift. By heating the air inside the balloon, the pilot makes that air less dense (lighter) than the outside air, and the balloon rises. As the internal air cools, the balloon becomes heavier, and descends if the pilot doesn't add more heat.

Competition pilots have become quite skilled in reading the winds aloft and using them to their advantage to get where they want to be (the target!). Competitors have gotten so good that the difference between first place and third or fourth can be fractions of an inch.
