Just checking an item off your bucket list is not enough.
We keep our prices low, offer roomy baskets, and long balloon flights.
The Phoenix area is an amazing place to fly so we get you away from the rooftops, and over the buttes and saguaro that make our area so spectacular.
We also limit the number of passengers we fly in each balloon, so everyone has a basket-edge view! We’ll keep you within conversation distance of your pilot.
Speaking of, each of our very skilled balloon operators are FAA certified, fully licensed and insured, and accident-free!
We Fly over Phoenix’s Open Sonoran Desert
We fly north of Phoenix and Scottsdale, Az. right above the world’s wettest desert. You’ll bask in the breathtaking views of the Bradshaw Mountains and Lake Pleasant, as we float gently over the tops of palo verde trees and desert.
A Glimpse Into Your
1 You’ll begin your adventure just about thirty minutes before sunrise at our meeting spot where we’ll check you in and get you warmed up with coffee from our favorite local roaster.
2We’ll then head over to our launch site, where your pilot and crew will set up the balloon for balloon ride.
We encourage you to touch the fabric of the balloon, take pictures, and learn our process if you’d like! This is all part of the experience!
3 Before you know it the balloon will be upright and ready to fly. The burners overhead will roar, and then silence. You’ll gently lift into the breeze. You won’t experience a sensation of motion or height, as we will be moving with the wind, on the wind.
4 You’ll be seeing the world as only balloonists can: an open-platform, full panoramic view, stretching to the horizon in all directions. We often see wildlife where we fly, and we’re always surrounded by the stunning desert foliage and rocky buttes that make Arizona unique. Finally, we’ll leisurely descend to the desert floor.
Time for a toast!
A fter your flight you’ll be treated to a full breakfast (or dinner!) featuring sparkling wine from our favorite local vineyard and a rotating menu curated by Arizona’s most talented chefs, organic local farms, and coffee roasters. This spring, we’ve teamed up with Pane Bianco for our brunch. Take a peek at Our Food to see what’s on the menu now!
