How do you steer a balloon?
Balloons simply float with the wind. The pilot can control the balloon's altitude to find a wind going in the desired direction, but you cannot fly upwind or crosswind.
Preflight planning insures the pilot knows which way the balloon will be traveling, and the pilot makes sure there are plenty of suitable landing sites downwind. You'll be amazed how the pilot is able to steer the balloon during your balloon ride!
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.
Can I smoke in or around a hot air balloon?
It's not advisable because of the possibility of propane fires or explosions from leaks, although leaks are extremely rare. The balloon fabric can also be damaged by a stray spark or hot ash. There is a strict non-smoking rule at most balloon festivals.

A hot air balloon has three major parts: the envelope, the burner, and the basket. The envelope is the large fabric part, the burner is fueled by propane to heat the air inside the envelope, and the basket is where you ride.
