Balloon Flight Passenger Information

  • Flights are weather permitting! OUR FLIGHTS ARE WEATHER PERMITTING!

  • Our time frame is not negotiable.  Sunrise will not wait for you.  Meeting time is 6am or earlier.

  • Passengers need to check in the night before your flight to check weather and meeting time.

  • You will not be cold in a HOT air balloon.  Dress as if you were going for a walk or picnic.  You will be outdoors for several hours.

  • We start each morning at Champions gate Village at 8390 Champions Gate Blvd Davenport, FL 33896 See the "Meeting Spot" page.  EXIT #58 on I-4


This is an out door sport!  Balloons need large areas to launch and to land.  Hot Air Balloons need open fields like Farms, Cattle Pastures and hay fields and large open and often UN-KEPT land.  These areas can have tall grass, Cows, Bugs, Ants and many other items associated with large open areas. O did we say OUT DOORS?..!!  Launch and landing areas are determined by the wind direction and speed.  Today's Launch site could be tomorrows landing site or we may not return to that location for weeks.  SO... Assume your shoes will be soaked and have mud all over them and your pants will be wet all the way up to your knees.THEN when we land somewhere nice you will be thrilled and... when you wear sandals or flip flops you will understand why we are all laughing.  O did we say OUT DOORS.?..!!!**On a serious note.  Fire Ants are everywhere in Florida. Watch where you walk and where you stand.  If you stand near a colony or on a mound they will swarm and begin to bite you.  They are painful and if you are bitten enough you may need medical attention or an antihistamine to combat the swelling.

 O an by the way. There are no snakes.. We put a sign up that says "No Snakes Allowed"
