Balloon Flight FAQs

Q: How high can the balloon fly?

A: The typical balloon flight ranges from just above the treetops to 2,000 feet high, but the operator can go higher if the customer requests it.

Q: How do you steer it?

A: Balloons float with the wind, so no two flights are the same. The balloon operator can adjust altitude to find currents of air moving in different directions that allow the operator to “steer” the balloon to a target or landing site.

Q: Why do hot air balloons fly only early in the morning or late in the afternoon?

A: These gentle aircraft need fair weather, with light winds and stable air. Conditions in early morning and late afternoon are generally more hot air balloon-friendly.
