Will my flight certificate be valid? As ballooning is weather dependent, we have to cancel your flight if the conditions are not safe. If your flight is canceled, you can simply reschedule for another date that suits your schedule. Sometimes passengers can be canceled more than once. If you have tried a few times during the flight season, and have not been able to get your flight in, we will extend your flight certificate to the following season.

A fan is used to blow cool air into the balloon. Then the burners are used to heat the air inside the balloon which makes the hot air balloon rise and eventually lift off of the ground.
