WE LOOK FORWARD TO HAVING YOU ON OUR FLIGHT!
Flight packages are listed below. You have purchased the Basic flight package.
Scottsdale and Phoenix, Arizona...480-991-3666
Your ballooning adventure will include the most experienced flight teams in the west and custom designed balloons and baskets unlike any others in the business.
At highest flight levels you will experience the panorama of the desert and mountain terrain stretching out for 100 miles in all directions. Changing altitude brings different wind currents used to "steer" the balloon. We float close to the ground to skim over the unique plant life such as the giant Saguaro cactus and Palo Verde Trees. We often see coyotes, jack rabbits, desert mule deer, and even javelinas... animals that are normally too shy to let you approach when you are walking on the ground.

What to expect on your Balloon Experience?
First and foremost, a safe memorable experience.
CrewThe most personable, professional, uniformed and experienced in the valley.
Clean Modern Vehicles and Balloons.
ClothingThe temperature in the balloon basket is no colder than the temperature on the ground if not warmer. The balloon moves with the wind so there isn't a wind chill factor.
We recommend an athletic shoe, NO SANDALS, HEELS or FLIP FLOPS. Our flights are out in the desert full of rocks, dirt, cactus, sticks and other things that can hurt your feet. Sometimes guests get all dressed up for this elegant excursion. The balloons are dusty and you will get a little dirty. We recommend you dress in layers as if you were going on a day hike. Sunglasses, a sweatshirt and a baseball hat is sufficient. Some guests say the radiant heat from the burners is warm on their heads.
TimePlan to meet us at the appointed time. Please do not be late and there is no need to be early. Your balloon ride will be 45 minutes to 1 hour and fifteen minutes in the air. We always try to fly for 1 hour. Depending on the day, we land when it is most prudent for safety reasons. Total activity time is 3 to 4 hours. This includes transportation time to and from the field, time to assemble and inflate the balloon, flight time, pack up of the balloon, party in the field and transportion back to your vehicles. Most flights are done in 3 hours but can take as long as 4 hours.
Customer Dress and # of Guests on each flightNo pregnant women. Landings can be rough, we do not recommend this activity for pregnant women or those who are not able to fend for themselves. Passengers must be able to climb into and out of the basket with little assistance. Those with recent hip, knee or other weakening circumstance, may want to reconsider the balloon flight.
The balloons hold between 4 and 12 guests depending on bookings and guest weights. You will be asked to provide approximate weights of all passengers. We do have a 6 guest minimum in order to fly. Most parties book in groups of two. Most days this is not an issue, although we do recommend you book early as some days do sell out.
Cancellation and BookingAll flights are confirmed and paid for 48 hours in advance.
Balloon and Jeep safari packages are billed $85.00 at time of booking. This is fully refundable up until 48 hours prior to flight time.
A credit card number, cell phone number or telephone number where we can reach you at 3:00am are required.
Depending on the time of year, the time of day or other unforeseen circumstances, we are not always able to offer all tours every day. All tours require a minimum number of passengers. We will make every effort to accommodate all guests, but may ask for some flexibility on your part by having alternate days/times available.
