How we do business.
All of our rides are sold
with a flight certificate. That certificate is the ticket. The
purchase of the certificate is how the initial
reservation is confirmed.
purchased, it is good for one full year, redeemable for the flight only,
not cash. It comes complete with a passenger information letter
that tells you everything you need to know, what to expect, what to
wear, how to schedule and reschedule, flight times, safety
considerations, calling procedures and maps to direct you to our
location in West Houston.
We have 3 flight packages, 2 private
flights, Basic Flight and Deluxe Flight. (1 or 2 passengers and a pilot only) and one
Group Flight (5-7
passengers and pilot).
flight is the Basic Flight
that lasts 30-45 minutes and following the flight we will do the
traditional champagne celebration with a toast (or a nonalcoholic
beverage if you choose).
The second private flight is our Deluxe
lasting 1 to 1 1/2
hours, followed by a traditional champagne celebration, done picnic
style in balloon motif, basket, table cloth, glasses, a full French
brunch with the champagne (or a nonalcoholic beverage if you choose),
plus some other nice giveaways.
Our third flight is our Group Flight
done in a "Big Balloon" in which we fly 5 to 7 passengers (an average of
6). The flight lasts 45 minutes to an hour and following the
flight we will do the traditional champagne celebration with a toast (or
a nonalcoholic beverage if you choose).
After the balloon is launched, the "recovery
crew" follows in a chase vehicle. Using
maps of the area and radios as well as visual
contact, they try to be close by when the
balloon lands. The crew helps the pilot
deflate and disassemble the balloon and return
the passengers and equipment back home.
are always looking for people who wish to become
part of our chase team!
