Can we fly at a balloon festival?

Check with your local balloon company to see if you can get your balloon ride during a nearby festival. Flying at a festival is a unique experience, and is one that you don't want to miss if possible.

Each festival has their own rules, and many do not allow paid passenger rides for several reasons, including FAA restrictions or insurance concerns. Some festivals, however, not only allow passenger flights but encourage spectators to fly by selling balloon rides at the festival.

Preplanning is the key - you'll want to know well in advance if you can fly at the balloon festival you plan to attend.

Famous Balloon Quote:

As we were returning to the inn we beheld something floating in the ample field of golden evening sky, above the chalk cliffs and the trees that grow along their summit. It was too high up, too large, and too steady for a kite; and, as it was dark, it could not be a star. . . The village was dotted with people with their heads in air; and the children were in a bustle all along the street and far up the straight road that climbs the hill, where we could still see them running in loose knots. It was a balloon, we learned, which had left St. Quentin at half past five that evening. Mighty composedly the majority of the grown people took it. But we were English, and were soon running up the hill with the best. Being travelers ourselves in a small way, we would fain have seen these other travelers alight.
The spectacle was over by the time we gained the top of the hill. All the gold had withered out of the sky, and the balloon had disappeared. Whither? I ask myself; caught up into the seventh heaven? or come safely to land somewhere in that blue uneven distance, into which the roadway dipped and melted before our eyes? Probably the aeronauts were already warming themselves at a farm chimney, for they say it is cold in these unhomely regions of the air. The night fell swiftly. Roadside trees and disappointed sight-seers, returning through the meadows, stood out in black against a margin of low, red sunset. It was cheerfully to face the other way, and so down the hill we went, with a full moon, the color of a melon, swinging high above the wooded valley, and the white cliffs behind us faintly reddened by the fire of the chalk kilns.
Robert Louis Stevenson, from his travelogue of a canoe trip from Antwerp to Paris, written when he was 25, 'An Inland Voyage,' 1878.
Balloon races are popular throughout the world, especially during summer months. We are often asked, "How do balloons race?" The term 'racing' may not be the best choice of words when talking about balloon competitions because balloons don't race in the normal sense of the word. It isn't a first across the finish line endeavor.

One of the most dangerous weather conditions balloonists face is thunderstorms. During the pre-flight weather briefing, balloon pilots want radar summaries to show thunderstorms no closer than 100 miles from the flight area. In flight, the pilot constantly looks for changing conditions which could signal convective activity. At the first sign of building cumulus clouds, rapidly changing wind direction on the surface, or other such indicators, the balloon should get on the ground as quickly as possible.
