Additional Information

Before the flight

There is no wheel or engine in hot air balloon. It is the only air transport which moves freely in the air. That’s why if you want to see the exact specific object/place during the flight please tell us in advance. So we will plan our flight, we can start from that place or we will wait for the perfect time to fly over that place.


To start the flight there supposed to be a field or a piece of land (50 meters x 50 meters square) or any place except for specific controlled air space, where it is possible to fly only with a special permission. If this place is marked on the air navigation map as a restricted area (for example NATO’s airfield, Adazi training camp, gas storage etc) in this case we will have to change the flight route. If the airspace is restricted or closed because of military or aviation trainings, the flight will be rescheduled to a different time and place, when and where it will be possible to arrange the flight.

If the pilot is asking you to tell him what is your weight, please, don’t be offended. This information is needed to make a calculation of air balloon’s lifting weight in accordance with the air temperature.

The warmer weather is, the smaller weight the air balloon can lift. That’s why in winter time the air balloon’s lifting force is greater and balloon can stay in the air longer, so you will be able to enjoy the views of the land in its white beauty longer as well.


If you booked the transfer we will pick you up from the hotel with mini-van or mini-bus (depends on the program and the quantity of people).


If you didn’t book the transfer we will send you an SMS or email with all the details (the meeting point and time) approximately 12 hours before the flight.


There are not many people who get sick during the flight, but we would recommend you to don’t eat fatty foods and don’t drink alcohol.


If you often get sick in transport, it would be better if you take some medicine.


If you have any health problems or you are pregnant, we recommend you to talk to your doctor.


We recommend you to wear comfortable sport style clothes and shoes, also wear a hat and sunglasses to protect yourself from the active sun. Usually it’s pretty windy so we recommend you to take a jacket with you.

The flight depends on the weather (clouds, wind strength, precipitation). The flight can be arranged, if there is no prescription, no fog and the wind strength is less then 5 m/s. We check the weather forecast before the flight, but sometimes the weather can change. We are responsible for the safety of our clients and the flight can be cancelled even before the start, if the weather conditions does not allow us to fly.

It is forbidden: pull the ropes and tubes; open and close the valves; hang over or seat on the boards of the balloon basket; take with you on board the weapon and explosives, firework for example; smoke in the balloon basket; drink alcohol; seat on the basket’s floor.

Allowed: hold on to the rope loops on the sides of the basket; take pictures and shoot videos; carefully monitor personal belongings so that they do not fall overboard; enjoy the view.

Usually the duration of the flight is 40-50 minutes, but because of the weather issues or some other obstacles we might need to land immediately. In this case the time of the flight will be shortened without rescheduling the flight to another day. The money paid for this flight will not be returned also.


During the landing

Hot air balloon landing will give you very unusual emotions. During the landing you need to hold on to the rope loops on the basket’s boards until the balloon stops moving.
