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:
Like a shamanistic language, flight speaks in different idioms. We can blast rockets to the stars. We can race across the sky on fixed wings. Ballooning appeals because it is more languorous and low-tech; it's adventure in an antique mood.
What a treat to stroll through the veils of twilight, to float across the sky like a slowly forming thought. Flying an airplane, one usually travels the shortest distance between two points. Balloonists can dawdle, lollygag, cast their fate to the wind and become part of the ebb and flow of nature, part of the sky itself, held aloft like any bird, leaf or spore. In that silent realm, far from the mischief and toil of society, all one hears is the urgent breathing of the wind and, now and then, an inspiring gasp of hot air.
— Diane Ackerman, 'Traveling Light,' op-ed in The New York Times, 11 January 1997.
The burner is positioned above the passenger's heads and produces a huge flame to heat the air inside the envelope. It is fueled by propane. The envelope is the colorful fabric bag that holds the hot air. When the air inside the envelope is heated, the balloon rises. To descend, the air in the envelope is allowed to cool and the balloon becomes heavier than air. The pilot has complete control of the up-and-down movements since he controls the heat in the envelope.
