Searching for Hot air balloon flights in Saint Petersburg? This is to the page you want! Finding a pilot to provide Hot air balloon flights is easy. Additionally, you can visit our ride guide, or look in the yellow pages.
Enjoying Hot air balloon flights is something anyone can enjoy, but it is also a popular way to get married! When you speak with the ride provider you are considering booking with, be sure to ask how many other passengers will be aboard the balloon.
When it is time for your ride, your ride company will offer to let you help with the assembly and inflation of the balloon. Go ahead and do it - it adds to the entire experience!
Deal direct with the company you fly with:
Our guide is unique since it lists the actual ride companies in a particular area. This offers many advantages over the 'Prepaid' ride companies.
First, you can visit with the company and find out all you need to know, including their specific terms and practices. Secondly, when you book directly with the flight company, you know exactly where you'll fly, how long the flight will last, and what is included. Our directory also allows you to comparison shop when there are multiple operators in an area.
The companies that advertise 'hundreds of locations nationwide' usually contract with a single operator in an area and pay them only a fraction of what you paid for your flight. Passengers that come from these 'aggregators' are used to fill vacant spots on existing flights, and it may be more difficult to actually schedule your flight if all seats are full during the most desirable times of year. As with most things, you get what you pay for!
Famous Balloon Quote:
How posterity will laugh at us, one way or other! If half a dozen break their necks, and balloonism is exploded, we shall be called fools for having imagined it could be brought to use: if it should be turned to account, we shall be ridiculed for having doubted.
— Horace Walpole, letter to Horace Mann, 24 June 1785.
What if you have to go to the bathroom?
Pre-planning is the key! Since flights average about an hour or so, pre-planning pays off in this regard. There are no bathrooms aboard the balloon.

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.
