What weather is needed for a hot air balloon flight?

There needs to be no frontal activity or rain in the area. The winds need to be under 10 miles per hour.

What's included with the flight?

All flights are 45 minutes to an hour. At the end of the flight, all passengers receive a First Time Flyers certificate. Also each flight concludes with champagne and a continental breakfast or a sunset snack depending on the time of day.

What time are flights scheduled?

Flights are scheduled at sunrise and just before sunset because that is when the winds are the calmest.

What time do we meet?

Morning flights meet a half an hour before sunrise and evening flights meet three hours before sunset.

Where do we meet?

We meet at Johnson County Executive Airport in Olathe, Kansas – southeast corner of 151st Street and Pflumm road.

How long will the flight last?

Flights are 45 minutes to an hour. Your total experience will take approximately three hours.

What do we wear?

Wear comfortable clothing. Tennis shoes or comfortable footwear is important.

What's the temperature in the balloon?

The temperature does not change much from the ground to our top altitude. You lose three degrees every 1,000 feet. So if it is 75 degrees on the ground at 1,000 feet it will be 72 degrees.

What does it feel like?

Flying in a balloon is like nothing else you will ever experience! You will become part of the wind gliding along above the treetops. A ride in a balloon is a very smooth, peaceful, enjoyable experience.

Where will we launch?

We decide where we will take off based on the wind direction at the time of your flight. Our launch sites vary daily, but all sites offer beautiful scenic views of the Kansas City area.

Where will we land?

We land where the wind takes us. Your pilot will steer the balloon using wind directions at different altitudes, but ultimately Mother Nature decides where we will land.

What altitude will we reach?

We will fly anywhere from tree-top level to several thousand feet.

What is the balloon made of?

Hot-air balloons are made of a polyester or nylon material.

What kind of fuel is used?

Propane is the fuel used for flying hot-air balloons. Therefore, due to the flammable nature of propane, smoking is never allowed during your ballooning experience.

What do I need to bring?

Bring your cameras, comfortable clothing, and a great attitude and we will have a lot of fun!
