You are welcome to help with the setup of the balloon or simply stand back and take photos as your aircraft takes shape and comes to life. The actual launch of the hot-air balloon usually takes no more than half an hour after arrival at the launch site. The balloon and basket are carried in a trailer. The basket is laid on its side and the balloon envelope is pulled out of its bag. Flying wires from the ‘envelope’ are attached to the basket and the whole system is given a ‘walk around’ inspection by the pilot. Once the balloon is inflated and the passengers get in, the balloon lifts off the ground effortlessly and the wonderful experience begins. FLIGHT As the new day dawns, you will ascend into the sky in your colourful balloon. Your balloon will float gently along with the breeze, whilst in your basket you will feel completely secure with very little sensation of movement. During your flight you may find yourself drifting just above the treetops then moments later effortlessly ascending to heights of 3000 feet or more. Your flight time is approximately 45-60 minutes, however, please allow 3-4 hours for the total tour time. An optional full buffet breakfast at the Hyatt is available after the flight. Please allow an extra hour if you decide to stay for breakfast. All flights are weather dependant. Should your flight be cancelled due to unsuitable conditions you can either rebook your flight or request a refund. CHAMPAGNE CELEBRATION The excitement of the morning continues over a champagne celebration back at your landing site. Relax and enjoy a glass of champagne with your fellow passengers and your pilot as you celebrate one of the most exhilarating mornings of your life.
