Before Your Balloon Flight

Flights are scheduled early in the morning, seven days a week, year-round. Each flight is custom tailored to the weather conditions of the day by experienced pilots. Hot air balloons are completely dependant on the wind. In other words we do exactly what the wind does. As the sun heats the earth the air begins to boil just like a pot of water. Early morning air is best for your safety. The first hour of light in the morning is the safest time of the day.
To fly in a balloon you must be at least 6 years of age, and we ask that our younger passengers (under 16 years of age) are accompanied by a responsible adult of 18 years or over. Passengers should be at least 4’6″ tall, so they can see over the edge of the basket and are able to adopt the landing position. There is no upper age limit.
Relax. Hot air ballooning is an extremely safe activity. We work with companies that are commercially insured for flight, ground transportation, and chase crew operations. Balloons are fully insured by Euroko and fully covered al operation at international standard. Balloon Flights is insured for third party and passenger liability. Experienced and friendly pilots who practice wise weather ballooning, and a fleet of modern hot air balloons that pass FAA inspections.
There are two morning flights allowed by Turkish Civil Aviation in Cappadocia. The first flight just takes off before sunrise and the second flight takes of after sunrise.
Yes we call that a private balloon. Balloons come in several sizes. We will arrange the sizes or combination of sizes that best suits the number of people who are scheduled for that day.
Wear something warm as it will probably be cold when you start out. It might be a good idea to bring a hat of some kind as the heat from the burner flame can sometimes be quite noticeable. Also, you will need a pair of good, sturdy shoes.
Yes, you will be picked up from the hotel you are staying in Cappadocia.
There are about 18 different launch and landing sites in Cappadocia. Each day is different. What launch and landing sites will be used on any day is determined by the speed and direction of the wind that day. Today’s launch site might be tomorrows landing site.

During Your Balloon Flight

The balloons will fly from ground level to a three thousand feet above ground level, depending on wind direction and speed. The max. altitude is 6000 feet and its is limited by Turkish Civil Aviation for the balloons in Cappadocia.
Actually you will be WARMER in the balloon. HOT air balloons (note the clue HOT) float with the wind so there is no wind chill. Generally in the morning as the balloon climbs the air actually gets warmer by a few degree.
When the burner is off, it is extremely quiet. Quiet is one of the most enjoyable aspects of ballooning.
The basket does not sway since it moves with the wind. No need to worry about motion sickness.

After Your Balloon Flight

A balloon flight is dependent on wind speed and direction. Every flight is different and our landing sites vary.
Chase crew are employees who follow the balloon via radio contact with the pilot throughout the balloon flight. They also meet you at landing, pack up the balloon and return you to your hotel at Cappadocia.
The chase crew will follow the balloon while you’re flying and meet at the landing site. After the landing, the passengers will board the minibuses and head back to their hotels.
Like any other service provider, a gratuity is always appreciated. Like the saying goes “if you like the ride, tip your guide!”
