|It is very important to be punctual on the day of the appointment. Indeed, Ballooning depends on the weather: the best conditions are early in the morning, at dawn or late evening, two hours before sunset. So, in order to make the most of these time windows, we thank you for your punctuality.||In general, we set appointments to our passengers 1 hour and 15 minutes before take-off for the evening flights and 45 minutes before take-off for morning flights.|
Ballooning is largely dependent on weather conditions. We fly only when conditions are good: calm winds, no precipitation and no atmospheric instability. The flights are early in the morning or late in the day, shortly before sunset. It is at these times that we have the optimal conditions for this activity.
In case of bad weather, your pilot will cancel the flight. You can plan the date of your flight again according to your availability.
Our qualified pilots and crew share their talent and experience with you! They make every effort to make sure that our passengers have a pleasant and memorable time with us.
We provide continuous training for our pilots. Our balloons meet the highest standards in terms of safety and control.
The location of our meeting will be defined by the pilots according to the weather conditions, the types of flights and the regions chosen. Our flight regions

Passenger dress code
For your comfort, we recommend to wear clothes similar to those you would wear for a hike. Flat shoes are essential. We also invite you to wear pants and a top with long sleeves.
It is not necessarily much colder once in the air: the temperature drops usually by 2°C per 1000 feet (+/- 300m). Nevertheless, an extra warm sweater may be useful, especially for morning flights or after landing for evening flights.
Do not hesitate to pack a sweater or jacket that you can remove or put on according to the conditions of the moment.
Pants and long sleeves
We invite you to wear long clothes to avoid being bitten by thirsty mosquitoes and annoyed by insects.
We recommend closed shoes and slightly high similar to hiking boots.
If you are sensitive to the heat, do not forget to bring a hat.
Heels and/or open shoes
Avoid heels and/or open shoes as they will not protect your ankles and feet when landing on steep or wet terrain.
Skirts or uncomfortable clothes
It is important to wear comfortable clothes that will allow you to get in and out of the basket without difficulties.
