Flight Information

When We Fly
Because we require the winds to move us through the skies, we fly when the winds are at their calmest. Gentle winds are found at sunrise and sunset, therefore we meet for morning flights at sunrise and for our evening flights we meet about 3 hours before sunset.

Where We Launch
We will choose a launch site which meets your needs based on convenience, what you would like to see, your desire to fly with other balloons, and other safety factors. Our most common launch areas are in Cumming and Snellville, and occasionally other areas.

Champagne Celebration
After each flight we commemorate the adventure with a Champagne Celebration (we offer a choice of either champagne or non-alcoholic sparkling beverages). Your pilot will explain the origins of ballooning and it's celebration while we all enjoy the drinks, food, and fellowship.
