What should I wear?
Dress to be comfortable just as you would if you were on the ground.  Wind chill factors are eliminated because a hot air balloon travels at the same speed as the air around it is typically a bit warmer in the basket.  Please DO NOT wear sandals.  Where comfortable shoes that cover your entire foot.
How do balloons fly?
Balloons operate through the basic principles of gravity and heat transfer.  As air inside the balloon is heated, it rises.  As the air inside the balloon cools, it descends.  To make the balloon fly, an inflator fan fills it with air, which is then heated.
Can you steer a balloon?
Winds determine a balloon's direction.  Balloonists can steer a balloon to a limited extent, by adjusting the balloon's altitude to make use of different wind speeds and directions.
Why do ballooon fly in the early morning and late evening?
Winds are generally most favorable the first hours after sunrise and the last hours before sunset.  The sun's uneven heating of the earth's surface causes strong, variable winds.  In the morning, it takes a few hours for the sun to heat the earth's surface enough to generate the thermal activity that creates wind.  In the evening, the sun's intensity has diminished enough to reduce winds to acceptable flight levels.  Ideal winds are 3 to 6 mph.
How high do balloons fly?
Balloons typically fly from treetop level all the way up to several thousand feet, depending on what the pilot is trying to accomplish.  The world record in a stock Aerostar hot air balloon is over 32,000 feet!
What equipment is required for balloons?
Balloons include several parts: the envelope (fabric portion of the balloon), the basket, burners and fuel systems.  The material for Aerostar balloon envelopes is made of an exclusive Aerostar Diamond Weave ripstop nylon with tough, durable coatings for heat and air retention.  The basket is made of wicker, with is strong, yet flexible and is aesthetically pleasing.  Burners can come in either single, dual, or triple.  The balloon you will be flying in has double burners.

Tony, our pilot, and the entire crew made the experience a great one. Tony took a lot of time to point out cool sites, and provide additional information to make the ride even better.
The guide made the whole experience fantastic. We would highly recommend him to anyone! He runs a first rate business.
