The US Hot Air Balloon Team schedules balloon launches at sunrise and sunset each day, April through November. Just choose your launch time when you book your group or private flight.
Plan about 2 1/2 to 3 hours for your hot air balloon experience. Your balloon flight will last about 1 hour. The fun starts on the ground, where you can help the crew assemble the balloon for launch. Be sure to bring your camera for some great shots with the crew!
When the balloon is ready, you’ll climb on board to begin your flight. In the air, you’ll experience breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside including vineyards, horse farms, wildlife and the distant silhouettes of the Manhattan, New York city skyline.
After you land, you’ll be taken back to your launch site in a comfortable, air conditioned van. Celebrate your flight with your pilot and crew, enjoying a light snack and champagne toast. You’ll also receive a flight certificate you can frame to remember your voyage.
