• Hot Air Balloon Ride

     

    Hot Air Ballon RideBallooning is an experience and not to be rushed through. One should allocate approximately 3 to 4 hours for the whole experience, wherein the actual time in the air is approximately one hour. Standing in a hot air balloon doesn't feel the same as standing on the edge of a cliff or being in an aircraft - you float gently along with the breeze so there's no sensation of movement. The balloon does not so much as leave the ground as the ground leaves the balloon! There is no feeling of acceleration or movement as one do in a lift Oran aircraft. Balloon floats gently along with the wind; ballooning is a calm experience.

    Standard Flight
    On a standard flight one will join a group of 4 to 8 people depending upon the balloon. For comfort, the balloon baskets are divided into compartments.
    A balloon flies at different heights up to 5,000 feet. The highly skilled pilots are experts at skimming the treetops and controlling the altitude of the balloon for the best visual experience.

    Weather Conditions
    Ballooning is very weather dependent. If the weather is not suitable for flight clients are informed at the earliest. In that case client can simply re-book for another convenient day. Alternatively, client will receive full refund of their booking amount.

    Age Requirement
    There is no upper age limit, passengers must be able to stand for at least one hour. Children must be at least 6 years of age and 1.5 m tall (to see over the sides of basket).
    Even an pregnant woman can take a balloon flight.

    Medical Conditions & Precautions
    If you have a disability, medical condition or have recently undergone a surgery, it's best to check with your doctor to ensure you're fit to fly. However, we're unable to fly anyone who is confined to a wheelchair. It is very important that you disclose any medical or physical condition that could be considered to affect your safety or the safety of others. You must not fly if you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

    Pick & Drop Facility
    A pick up vehicle will pick up the client from hotel/home and takes them to the launch site and after the flight the vehicle drops the client back to their hotel/residence.
