In Full Detail
Your Arizona Balloon adventure kicks off with a "pre-flight briefing" where our seasoned pilots share with you how the balloon flies as well as other facts to make your flight as enjoyable as possible.
Once your balloon is inflated, you will climb aboard the luxurious over-sized basket and join your pilot for the experience of a lifetime. After a gentle lift-off, you'll be floating across the desert at speeds of five to six miles per hour with virtually no sensation of motion because you are flying with the wind.
Be sure to bring your camera along as we commonly see animal life such as jack-rabbits, quail, roadrunners and coyotes! Your pilot will even descend to within inches of trees and cacti, much to everyone's delight. And don't be surprised by all the excitement and curiosity we stir up down below by the passage of our balloons! Sometimes cars will follow us over the desert terrain to rendezvous with us after landing.
Traveling down below during your flight is our ground crew so that as we descend back to Earth again they are ready and waiting for you upon your landing which is always a gala occasion! Watch as carpeting magically appears on the desert floor beneath your feet as you are greeted in the traditional manner with flutes of champagne and scrumptiously prepared gourmet food. After enjoying your meal, you will be inducted into the ballooning society and awarded the Certificate d'Ascension En Machine Aerostatique. There is simply nothing finer.
If you light a candle aloft the Hot Air Balloon, the flame would remain motionless because there is no breeze since you match the speed of the wind exactly.
Hot air ballooning history can be traced back to the 13th century
