Hot Air Balloon Rides

Passenger Requirements

Pennsylvania Hot Air Balloon RidesAll passengers must be capable of standing for the length of the flight and be able to enter and exit the gondola/basket unassisted. Weight/loading is an important factor in hot air ballooning and determines the number of passengers we can fly. Please advise us beforehand of any passenger whose weight is more than 220 pounds to avoid possible embarrassment at the time of the flight.

If you have any questions regarding physical suitability, please discuss this with us before scheduling. We will do all that we can to accommodate you, however, we reserve the right to refuse anyone who, in our opinion, would be a safety liability to themselves or others. We consider pregnancy a safety liability; the certificate can be transferred to another party for use during the valid time period.  Children must be 12 years of age:  children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Weather Conditions

Pennsylvania Hot Air Balloon RidesThe balloon never flies under conditions that might present the slightest risk. Winds must be light, under 8 miles per hour with no threat of rain, fog, or impending precipitation, or any other condition the Pilot determines to render the flight unsafe. We hold strictly to these parameters; safety will not be compromised.

The main flying season is May through October.  Spring and Fall present some of the most beautiful days of the year:  it is, however, a transitional time and does not offer many good flight days.  FLights may be canceled and need to be rescheduled many times due to unacceptable hot air ballooning weather or conditions beyond our control.

Flights are scheduled Tuesday though Sunday at sunrise and sunset.  Scheduling is subject to availability.


Balloon Flight Schedule

Flights are scheduled 7 days a week and planned to last for about one hour of flight time. The total balloon experience from setting up-flying-landing-packing up will last approximately 2½ - 3 hours.

Launch Sites

Pennsylvania Hot Air Balloon RidesWe launch from several sites in the Delaware Valley. Actual location will depend upon wind direction; specific directions will be given on the date of the flight.

Click on a location name to be linked to a map to the area. The launch site is at the center of the map, NOT AT THE X. As always, if you have any questions, please give us a call.

Some of the locations that we use are :

Eagle, PA - Behind the Eagle Tavern, 1 mile from the PA Turnpike Downingtown Exit. At Rte 100 North, turn left onto Little Conestoga Road at the Eagle Tavern. Follow to the yellow blinking light, and turn right onto Park Road. Turn left into the first driveway at the real estate office. We take off from inside the white picket fence.

Ludwig's Corner, PA - Ludwig's Corner Horse Show Grounds. Approx. 4 miles north on Route 100 from the PA Turnpike Downingtown Interchange. Right before the left turn for Nantmeal Road, is a left turn (from North bound 100) into the Horse Show grounds. We meet right inside the entrance fence.
