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.
Even if the pilot happens to land in the same field twice (which doesn't happen often) the winds will probably be different. This means the take off and or landing will have something different that needs to happen to help make it a safe flight.
