Can we fly at a balloon festival?
Check with your local balloon company to see if you can get your balloon ride during a nearby festival. Flying at a festival is a unique experience, and is one that you don't want to miss if possible.
Each festival has their own rules, and many do not allow paid passenger rides for several reasons, including FAA restrictions or insurance concerns. Some festivals, however, not only allow passenger flights but encourage spectators to fly by selling balloon rides at the festival.
Preplanning is the key - you'll want to know well in advance if you can fly at the balloon festival you plan to attend.
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.
During the flight the balloon is followed by the chase crew. The chase crew is usually in radio contact with the pilot, and the crew's job is to be at the landing site when the balloon returns to earth. This can be quite an adventure in itself! After the balloon lands, the crew packs the balloon back into the chase vehicle and everyone returns to the launch site. One of the most important parts of being on a chase crew is dealing with the public. When the balloon is landing, the chase crew asks the landowner for permission to retrieve the balloon.
