Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is a hot air balloon? A balloon is a non-powered aircraft that uses the principle of Archimedes to fly. Usually a hot air balloon consists of a bag that is capable of containing heated air which is lighter than cold air, hence it is popularly known as balloons. This bag may be suspended beneath a solid structure called basket whose capacity can vary from 2 to more crewmembers.

2. Why the activity starts so early?  We meet at first light in the morning when the atmosphere is cold and stable. This guarantees the absence of wind and the optimal conditions for a safety flight. It is for that reason that it’s so important to be ON TIME. 

3. What happens if it rains in the flight day? Our activity depends entirely on the weather conditions. Thus, days before the flight we monitor weather forecasts. It may be that the day of the flight because of weather conditions is not safe to fly, this means sometimes the pilot will decide to cancel the activity and book onto another date.

4. Is there an age restriction to fly in a hot air balloon? Children must be aged five or over. Adult age limit depends on physical and medical conditions; we have flown with people up to 95 years old.  

 

5. What’s the balloon ride route? Every flight is different: a hot air balloon has no rudder and therefore you cannot steer it. We can control the altitude and according to it, we look for drafts with the direction we want. We always travel on the wind. Hence, we know the launch site but you never know where exactly you’re going to land. Thus we say that ballooning is like life itself: "We know where we start but we never know exactly where we will end". That’s the dose of adventure we like.

6. How do you know where the balloon will fall? A hot air balloon never falls, it lands. When the pilot decides to land, he looks for a suitable site and starts a controlled descent then he looks for drafts that will help him to land.
