Hot Air Balloon Ride Orlando are weather permitting. A Hot Air Balloon requires very specific weather conditions for safe flight. Light and stable winds are a must. These conditions occur most often during the first hour of daylight each day. This is the primary reason balloon flights are conducted at sunrise each day. Once the sun rises it begins to heat the earth. This heating effect begins to make the atmosphere boil like a pot of water on a stove. When the atmosphere becomes turbulent it will create conditions that make controlling the balloon difficult. There are also many days that are simply not safe to fly and Capt. Terry never takes chances! With a 100% safety record spanning over 45 years you are in some of the best hands around!
