Most balloon companies offer gift certificates so you can give a flight to your favorite person. Certificates are a very thoughtful gift since the recipient can schedule their balloon ride themselves. Certificates also work well when you are in a different part of the country. You may be in San Diego, California, but you can buy a balloon ride gift certificate for someone in Nebraska.
Some company websites allow you to purchase and print a gift certificate instantly, while others may require a phone call to make a purchase.
When shopping for a balloon flight gift certificate be sure to check the length of time the certificate is valid for. Be sure it is good for at least a year.
Famous Balloon Quote:
The best way of travel, however, if you aren't in any hurry at all, if you don't care where you are going, if you don't like to use your legs, if you don't want to be annoyed at all by any choice of directions, is in a balloon. In a balloon, you can decide only when to start, and usually when to stop. The rest is left entirely to nature.
— William Pene du Bois, 'The Twenty-one Balloons.'
In their simplest form, balloon competitions score how close a pilot can get to a pre-determined target. Small weighted markers are dropped at the target. The challenge is to be the closest to the target, but unlike all other forms of flying, balloon pilots do not have direct control of their direction of flight. The balloon simply drifts with the wind.
