Frequently Asked Questions

Who can fly?
The minimum age is 5 years. Parents please be aware that smaller children may not be able to see over the edge of the basket. There is no maximum age limit. It is important that we know if you under medical supervision. Elderly folk are welcome. Due to the physical nature of hot air ballooning a moderate level of fitness is required. For safety reasons we are unable to carry the disabled, passengers who weigh more than 120 kg, or who are more than 12 weeks pregnant, without prior arrangement. As we normally fly below 2000 feet oxygen is not necessary
What time do we meet?
Our meeting times change relative to when the sun rises. We aim to meet roughly 30 minutes before sunrise so that we can have the balloon inflated for launch as the sun comes up. This gives you the most spectacular flight. In early January it might mean a 5am meeting time, whilst in mid June it might mean a 6:30am meeting time.
What do I wear?
Sturdy enclosed shoes, as feet can get wet and sometimes a bit muddy in the early morning dew. Jeans, jumper, beanie or hat and a jacket that you can remove as the morning warms up. Ladies no skirts or high heels please. It is not cold in the balloon – the coldest part of the morning is on the ground whilst we are inflating the balloon. Dont forget your sunglasses and camera
What is for breakfast?
The post flight breakfast is held at Delice Coffee Roasters and Cafe. We have a selection of fruit juice, fruit, bacon,eggs,sausages etc, fresh hot bread and espresso coffee or teas and of course our own Toms Waterhole bottle fermented sparkling. We can cater for all dietary requirements but you need to let us know when you book in.
What if I am afraid of heights?
Many people have said they are afraid of heights but in more than 35 years of commercial flying we have never had one person who had a problem with heights in the balloon. The takeoff is slow and gentle.Please advise your pilot before takeoff of any concerns you may have.
What Other Flight options are available?

If an Exclusive Flight is not for you, we have other  flight options listed below. They all finish with a presentation flight certificate and a catered champagne breakfast with espresso coffee at Delice Coffee Roasters. We also cater for non flying accompanying friends.

Sunrise Flights last for 50 minutes to 1 hour flying time depending on available landing sites. We recommend you allow at least three to four hours with us. This is the ultimate ballooning experience conducted by one of our resident commercial pilots who gives a full commentary on how the balloon works coupled with local knowledge. Ballooning is a magic experience.

Group Flights are offered for groups of 10 to 18 people BOOKING and FLYING TOGETHER. These flights are designed to give you a taste of ballooning and at a less expensive price and last for a minimum of 30 minutes flying time.

A magical experience

Wonderful experience with the Balloon Joy Flights team. Calm, beautiful still morning – early start – quickly away in Anton’s capable hands. Not one who is keen on heights, I was not concerned at any stage, was totally distracted by the calm peaceful space.

A very easy and knowledgeable person...

Graham Kerr is a very easy and knowledgeable person to be around and gave us all a great experience on the balloon flight. He and his wife made it all a great experience

This was the most fantastic experience...

Everything about the balloons were awesome!!.. Watching them fill up,…
V Harland, Australia

A must do ...

We couldn’t fault the professionalism and experience that this team displayed. And let’s face it, if you are going up so high, you really want that to make sure that you are safe. Graham (pilot) and Jan – who on our trip acted as ground crew.
