Enjoying Baloon rides is something the entire family can enjoy, but it is also a great way to give a gift! When you speak with the firm you are thinking about flying with, be sure to ask how many passengers will be in the basket.

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.

The balloon seems to stand still in the air while the earth flies past underneath. — Alberto Santos-Dumont.
How old do you have to be to fly a balloon? To obtain a Private Pilot Certificate in the USA you must be 16 years old. And would you believe that there are balloonists flying in their 80's!
