Book a Flight

ALL FLIGHTS ARE AT SUNRISE.  We do not schedule PM flights (sunset flights) as weather conditions in Asheville rarely make ballooning in the afternoon possible. It’s OK to book just one passenger, but we require a minimum of three scheduled passengers per shared basket flight. Private flights have a minimum of two passengers.
Public Basket per passenger $ 250.00 Private Basket per passenger $ 400.00. Individual passengers who weigh greater than 250 lbs. are required to book a private flight.

Announcement: Governor Roy Cooper issued Phase 3 extending North Carolina’s restrictions. We will operate in accordance with the three phases of restrictions for opening a business to the public. See more information here.

Notice: Hot air ballooning is weather dependent. We cancel roughly 30% of booked flights due to inclement weather. Passengers scheduling flights through PayPal, pay in full at the time of booking. When flights are canceled passengers receive a full and immediate refund back through PayPal.
If the canceled flight occurs 180 days after booking, PayPal charges a transaction fee. Historically, we have absorbed the fee as a cost of doing business. However, the fee has increased and so have administrative costs. This penalty is no longer sustainable.
New Policy: Therefore effective immediately, passengers flights canceled within the 180 day window will  receive full and immediate refunds if desired. PayPal passengers flights canceled outside the 180 day period can opt to receive refund checks via the mail or direct through PayPal minus the transaction fee.
If your flight is scheduled to occur outside the 180 day window we can take your credit card number on the phone to secure your reservation. Please call 828.707.2992

  • The minimum number of passengers is two and the maximum number of passengers is six in one gondola.
  • We have a two week cancellation policy and require you to cancel at least two weeks before your flight.
  • If your plans change please notify us as soon as possible.
  • All flights are weather dependent and may have to be rescheduled, but passengers are not obligated to reschedule if the flight is canceled due to weather conditions.
  • We reserve the right to cancel any flight if safety is ever in question and/or the weather conditions are deemed unfavorable by the pilot.
  • It is best to schedule a balloon flight with a back-up date in mind just in case weather conditions on the scheduled date are unfavorable for balloon flying.

We can never give you a 100% guarantee that we are good to go until we are in real time at the launch site. A flight will likely be cancelled when any of the following basic weather forecast is applicable:

  1. Surface wind speed is greater than 6 MPH or winds aloft are too fast
  2. Visibility is less than 10 miles
  3. Raining

Please call Phyllis at (828) 707-2992 with questions and concerns.
