Why don’t you fly from Balloon Fiesta field?
2 reasons, 1 its way more expensive because we would have to pay to launch every flight from there. 2. The traffic getting into the field starts at 4am. We prefer to sleep in and launch from less congested area.

Will I still be able to see the Balloon Fiesta Balloons, activities?
Yes (only exception is if the weather did not cooperate and your makeup flight was in the afternoon.) The field and balloons will be about 4.5 miles away from us but you will have a dramatic panoramic view of the area and balloons participating in the event.

Do you fly in the afternoons?
Occasionally, but we do not allow reservations for these flights because ballooning is very weather dependent. We reserve afternoon flights for making up missed morning flights.

I am not here for the entire period and I live out of town, what happens if we cancel?
We do NOT believe in being paid for something we did not do. If the weather does not cooperate, you will receive a credit toward any of our services or a full refund at your choice. However, if you fail to cancel, reschedule your flight at least the night before you will lose your 50% deposit.
