Searching for Baloon rides in San Jose? You've come to the end of your search! Finding a pilot to provide Baloon rides is easy. In addition, you can check our ride guide, or look in your yellow pages.
Enjoying Baloon rides is something everyone can enjoy, but it is also a great way to get engaged! When you speak with the firm you are considering booking with, always to ask how many other passengers will be in the basket.
When it is time for your ride, your pilot will offer to let you help with the assembly and inflation of the balloon. Go ahead and do it - it adds to the experience!
Be sure to bring a camera and plenty of film!
You'll be surprised at how many pictures you take before, during and after your flight. Bring more film or memory than you think you'll use. Once you're in the air and snapping away you sure don't want to be surprised by running out!
You can bring cameras for still or video, and we suggest you carry them in a protective case. Your pilot may ask you to put your cameras away during landing to make sure there are no objects that could fly out of your hand and hurt someone. Once you're on the ground you can start shooting again.
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.
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.

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.
