Special Needs Flights

Recommended Posts

Hot Air Ballooning is a vigorous and potentially rough outdoor sport.  It is hard work, exciting, and magical all at the same time.

However there are hugely different standards among pilots as to whom they will and will not take. 

THIS IS 100% THEIR CHOICE.  After all if someone gets hurt who will they blame?  Many people do not understand that we are at the complete mercy of mother nature and NO ONE can forecast with 100% accuracy what the weather will do.  Trust me in my 40+ years and nearly 7,000 flights I have been in many rough and tough landings.

Here is a video that shows us flying a woman with MS.  Remember the conditions this day were nearly perfect.
