Your ballooning adventure takes about three hours from beginning to end. Don't forget your camera! Your journey begins at the Trappe Tavern where we meet early in the morning or late afternoon. We depart to one of our launch sites and you receive a pre-flight briefing.
The pilot and crew assemble the balloon and inflate the envelope with a motorized fan. Once the envelope is filled with air, the burner is ignited to heat the air inside and the balloon rises up. Time to get in!
You then gently rise above the earth and float for about an hour over a very scenic part of Montgomery county. You enjoy a 360 degree view of farm land, forests, ponds and streams, occasionally spotting deer, foxes, rabbits or other animals.
Your pilot may fly high for an overview of the valley and sight of the Philadelphia skyline by good visibility, or descend within inches of the tree tops. Eventually,the balloon lands in an open area where the crew picks us up. After packing the balloon we return to our starting point.
After landing each flight is celebrated with a traditional champagne toast.
