Is Balloon Flight Safe?

Absolutely! While there is an element of risk in everything we do in life, flying in a balloon is inherently safe for several reasons:

  • Pilots are highly trained and licensed by the F.A.A.
  • Balloons are registered aircraft and must be regularly inspected by an FAA licensed facility.
  • Balloons fly only when the weather is the best. You won't find anyone flying a balloon when weather conditions make it unsafe to do so.
  • It is low and slow! There are few moving parts in a balloon - it is the simplest form of flight.
If you have any specific concerns, talk to the company you are considering flying with. They can tell you how long they've been flying and what their safety record is. They can also answer any specific questions you might have about your flight.

Famous Balloon Quote:

The balloon seems to stand still in the air while the earth flies past underneath.
Alberto Santos-Dumont.
The balloon is inflated using a gasoline powered fan. Once the balloon is fully packed with air, the pilot turms on the burner and heats the air in the balloon, causing it to rise. Passengers then board the aircraft, and your flight begins!

What are the ropes for?
The crown line on top of the balloon is used to stabilize the balloon during inflation. "Tether lines" are used to tie the balloon down for display purposes. A "drop line" is sometimes released by the pilot just before landing so the ground crew can pull the balloon to a desired location.
