Choose your preferred location, register with your chosen balloon operator and advise them of your weekday morning availability. The operator will then contact you when there is a promising weather forecast, and a morning flight is being arranged for your preferred day, to see if you are available. Call for a final weather check the evening prior to your morning flight to ensure the weather is suitable, and be sure to arrive in plenty of time for your flight. Your itinerary starts just after dawn at which time you will be invited to help prepare the balloon for flight with the rest of the guests. Flights last about an hour, the whole experience lasts around three and a half hours.
