What is it like flying in a balloon?
You'll be amazed the first time you go for a balloon ride! The feeling is unlike anything else. It is very calm and serene, and not frightening at all. The view is spectacular, and depending on the location of your balloon flight, you're likely to see local wildlife as never before. It is very quiet except for the occasional WHOOOSH of the burner, and you can talk to people on the ground!
The 360 degree view is spectacular as you drift silently above the world. You may brush gently through the treetops or soar thousands of feet above the earth; either way you'll be thrilled at the peace and serenity of your adventure.
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.
The burner is fueled by propane, and is used by the pilot to heat the air inside the balloon's envelope (the fabric part above the passengers). When the air is heated, the balloon rises.

Balloonists are borrowing someone's land every time they take off and land, so they are very careful not to disturb or damage someone's property. The landowner is always thanked, and by the time the crew is leaving the landing site, most balloonists are already planning their next flight!
