Clothing Requirements

The attire for ballooning is casual. To maximize your enjoyment, dress appropriately for the weather on your scheduled flight date and remember that the temperature on the ground is very similar to the temperature you will feel in the air.  We require you wear athletic shoes, and long pants.  It is recommended that you dress in layers (t-shirt, sweatshirt, or jacket) to increase your comfort. We take off and land in open fields and there are no doors on the basket, you will be climbing in and out.  For your safety, shorts, open toed and high heeled shoes are not allowed.  Due to heat generated by the balloon, a hat is preferable for tall passengers.
