Famous Balloon Quote:
The balloon seems to stand still in the air while the earth flies past underneath.
— Alberto Santos-Dumont.
Sunrise and evening? But I want to go flying at noontime, so I won't have to get up so early. Sorry-midday is best left for glider pilots. Balloons usually fly within two or three hours of sunrise and sunset, when the winds are calmest and conditions most stable. During the middle of the day, upper level pressure gradient winds mix down to the surface. In addition, the development of thermals which the glider pilots love can be highly dangerous for the balloonist. Balloonists try to be on the ground no later than three hours after sunrise, and not launch more than that amount of time before sunset. Time of year makes much less difference than time of day.

A two- or three- person crew helps the pilot rig the equipment, holds open the envelope while it fills with cold air, and applies weight to the outside of the basket as needed before launch. Then they follow the balloon on the ground, and after the landing help the pilot pack everything up and bring it home again. Much of the crew workload consists of carrying heavy equipment from the truck to and from launch and landing spots.
