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:
Build lightness in.
— Alberto Santos-Dumont.
The balloon is made of nylon, which is strong and lightweight. There is a valve at the very top of the balloon which the pilot used to descend. The valve is also used to deflate the balloon after landing.

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.
