A flight with Hunterdon Ballooning, Inc. will be one of the most exciting and memorable experiences you will ever have. All your senses will be subject to “sensory overload”!
From the time you arrive you will have the opportunity to be part of the entire experience. We invite all of our passengers, as well as their friends and family, to be part of our team. You have the choice of either stepping back and simply watching the entire process of preparing the hot air balloon for inflation and flight, or you can jump right in and be part of the action with our guidance and direction. Our seasoned and experienced professional ground support team will gladly be your guide and show you what to do. Regardless of whether or not you choose to be part of the setup and inflation, all of our passengers will be given a thorough pre-flight safety briefing before the flight. Listen carefully to this very important information. We always encourage you to ask any questions you may have at any time.
The inflation is one of the busier and more exciting parts of the process. A lot is going on while the balloon is first “cold-inflated” with fans and later “hot-inflated” with the burners to an upright standing position.
As you gently ascend from the ground, your visual perspective changes dramatically. Your ever-familiar ground based perspective gently transforms into an airborne one. The trees and buildings that surrounded you just a few minutes ago are now below you! All of a sudden you are in another world as you commence to take a nature walk in the sky. Take the time to absorb it all. The colors, the sounds, the smells, and of course – the spectacular sights and views. Be sure to be prepared with a camera for your aerial voyage. If you are bringing family or friends to be part of your ballooning experience, they will be following you on the ground along with our ground support team. Be sure they have a camera to take pictures of your flight from the ground.As your flight comes to a close, your pilot will brief you on the landing. Listen to and follow the instructions. After landing, the ground support team will begin the process of assisting the pilot in deflating and packing the balloon and equipment. We will gladly ask you once again to be part of the team.
After all the equipment is secured and packed, all the vehicles will return to the original launch site. Now it’s time to celebrate your aerial adventure with a traditional toast of champagne.
Whether this is your first hot air balloon flight, or you are a seasoned veteran balloon passenger and enthusiast, no two flights are identical. The flight path, weather, surroundings and sights are always different.
Enjoy every minute of this experience. It will forever be one of the most memorable and exciting events in your life!
