How many people can fly?
Standard flights can vary from 18 to 24 people capacity balloons and 10 to 16 for Deluxe flights. Passengers are seperated into different compartments within the balloon so everyone can enjoy the spectacular views from the side of the basket. Balloon volume, outside temperature, altitude above sea level, and other variables all factor in how many can fly each day.
How long does it all take?
From start to finish, your adventure will last about 3 hours. The inflation and preparation of the balloon normally takes about 30 minutes and is quite incredible to see. The flight itself normally takes around 1 hour for standard flights and 1.5 hour for deluxe flights. After the flight, the post-flight celebration takes about 30 minutes and travel back to your hotel will take roughly another 30 minutes. The balloons always carry sufficient fuel for more than 2 hours flight time plus a 30 minute reserve capacity.
Where do you fly?
We change our take-off site everyday according to wind speeds and direction so we can show you the most charming valleys and peaks of Cappadocia.
How far do we travel?
Balloons can travel anywhere between 4 and 20 km depending on the speed of the wind on your flight day.
How high up do you go?
Most balloonists enjoy low level flight over the Cappadocia region to witness the spectacular fairy chimneys and rock formations. The typical balloon flight can be anywhere from tree level to about 3,000 feet above the ground.
Do we take off before sunrise?
We have 2 flights around sunrise, first take off before sunrise, second take off 30 minutes after the first flight so just after the sunrise. The perfect time of day to get some great snaps of the valleys and other balloons in the air. Sometimes, we might have to wait due weather conditions.
What's the landing like?
The basket usually touches the ground or slides a few feet and stops. Our very experienced pilots can even land a balloon on the trailer it needs to be packed away on. In faster winds the basket may bounce or tip at an angle.
Where do you land?
Our balloons will land in any large easy accessible area including large yards, parks, fields, school grounds or even alongside roads. No airport is required and the ground crew will meet your ballloon at the landing site.
How do I get back to my hotel?
The balloon is followed by a chase vehicle and the ground crew. They are in constant contact with the balloon pilot by radio and should be at the landing site at the same time as the balloon. Once the balloon is packed away, and we have enjoyed a champagne toast, one of the chase vehicles will take you back to your hotel. We have you back in time for any additional tours you may have booked for that day.
What should I wear?
As it can get a little cold up in the balloon it is advised that you wear long trousers and tops with long sleeves or take a jacket with you. It is important you are comfortable as you will be standing in the balloon for at least an hour so suitable footwear is highly recommended. For passengers blessed with height, wearing a hat is useful because of the radiant heat from the balloon's burners.
What should I bring?
Bring your camera, video cam or phone to capture the best views of the Cappadocian region. Our crew will be happy to take pictures of you in the balloon.
What are the best conditions for a balloon flight?
A balloon flies better in cooler weather since the hot air gets a better "lift." Balloonists usually fly just after dawn or before dusk, because there is less wind at these times.
Can pregnant women fly?
No. If you are pregnant or think that you might be pregnant, you shouldn’t fly with balloons due to possible bumpy landings.
Can children fly?
Children aged 0-5 are not allowed to fly. For maximum safety and enjoyment, our pilots will only fly with children who are old enough to understand a preflight briefing and tall enough to see over the side of the basket unaided by a parent or guardian (typically at least 6 years old). Parents/guardians should be mindful of flight times with small children as well, as many can get bored and restless standing in the balloon for an hour.
How are balloon pilots licensed?
Balloons are registered like any other aircraft and are subject to regular air safety checks. The FAA will not allow a balloon to be certified as airworthy unless these inspections and checks are done by authorised maintenance personnel and certified. All pilots are licensed by the FAA and have to pass regular flight checks.
