important things to know
We generally schedule flights six to eight weeks in advance other than in October when we begin scheduling for the following March. If you have a specific location and date in mind, you can contact us to check availability before purchasing. Ballooning is weather dependent. If your flight is cancelled you simply need to re-book and if you have a cancellation near the end of your validity period we will extend it if necessary so you have another chance to fly. Unless otherwise stated vouchers are non-refundable.
