About 20 minutes to prepare the aircraft for flight in which time your Pilot will explain how balloons are made, how we control them and some history.Then it’s up and away on the gentle breezes over the beautiful Hunter Valley in our hot air balloon.What goes up must come down. Your pilot will choose a landing site, which is always downwind of the take off site, and inform the ground crew who will meet us as the balloon comes back to earth. Most of our flights have a gentle ending but if we are moving at more than 10kph it is not unusual to bump along the ground for a bit before the basket falls over on it’s side. Its quite safe but lots of fun!About 20 minutes is spent packing the balloon away before a short drive back to The Sebel Kirkton Park where you enjoy a delicious buffet breakfast at the Infuzion Restaurant.
The weather plays a major part in deciding if your flight takes place. Wind, rain & fog can play a part in spoiling our fun. But you have to remember that the whole idea is to have fun and do it safely.So if the Pilot decides conditions aren’t suitable don’t get upset, he just wants to give you the best experience possible.
