Ballooning is an extremely weather sensitive activity, so we keep a very close eye on both the aviation forecast and the current conditions leading up to flight time. If there is anything unfavorable in the forecast and/or conditions, we will call off the flight. The definition of “unfavorable” for ballooning includes: any precipitation in the area, low visibility, thunderstorms within 50-100 miles of our location, surface winds above 8-10 mph, or upper winds above 20-24 mph. We do our very best to accommodate all of our passengers, so if we are able to find another flight time that suits everyone, we are happy to reschedule. But we absolutely will not compromise the safety of our passengers, crew, or equipment in the event of marginal weather!
