What is a Balloon Tether?
A Hot Air Balloon Tether is where we bring our Hot Air Balloon to your location and inflate and operate the balloon onsite using a series of ropes to hold the balloon in place during the time the balloon is in operation.
A Balloon Tether is still classified as a flight operation and all of the local and FAA regulations apply. A visit to the location may be required by one of our pilots.
What are the space requirements for the Balloon?
Hot air balloons are much bigger than people realize. Balloons come in different sizes from a one man balloon to as large as an 18 passenger balloon. For the Tether operations we use a balloon that carries a pilot plus 2 passengers. This size seems to be the best size for this type of operation.
For this balloon we would need an area about the size of Half a football field or 200 feet by 200 feet. This area must be clear of any obstacles of any kind and must be able to be driven on by our support vehicles.
