Hot Air Balloon Flight Information and Pricing 

If you have questions about our services or have a special event please let us know. 


Our Hot Air Balloon Rides give you the chance to fly with the winds, safely and comfortably. Along with the breathtaking views of the Hampton Roads area, you will also be able to witness birds flying, talk below to neighbors up early for their morning coffee, or maybe even catch the sun right before it goes to sleep! The experience is like no other form of flight will make memories that will last a lifetime. Below is a sample of a few of our flight packages, however we are always willing to try and accommodate your special requests! We are available for weddings and parties, or even corporate events! All flights meet either 1/2 hour before sunrise or two hours before sunset when the winds are the calmest.

The day of your flight.


Your flight begins at the launch site where if you choose you can assist your pilot and his crew with the assembly of the aircraft.  As the balloon slowly inflates you will watch as your pilot fills the fabric with cold air, and then you will experience the powerful burners heating that air as the balloon climbs up and stretches itself into its true form! Or you may just want to climb in and fly.

After climbing aboard and receiving a safety briefing, we will take flight and ride the winds as our trusty support crew follows along on the ground. In flight, you will have the opportunity to get pictures and video as we climb higher and higher, all suspended by hot air! As you near the end of your flight the balloon will descend to treetop level and look for an appropriate, safe and suitable landing spot to end our travels. Once back safely on the ground the chase crew will be there to assist in packing the equipment back safely into it's trailer ready for another flight! Our flight will end with a recap of the adventure and a celebratory champagne (or sparkling cider) toast and there will be plenty of time for photos! Your entire experience lasts approximately three hours.
