What times do we fly?
Morning flights usually meet at around 6am. The exact time and launch site will be decided by your Pilot the night before your flight at 10pm. Sunset flights launch 2 hours before sunset, this varies throughout the year but is usually between 4pm and 7pm. The exact time and launch site will be decided by your Pilot at 2pm on the day of the flight.
Why can’t I book a specific launch site?
As Kent is surrounded by the sea on 3 sides it is important that the choice of launch site takes into account the wind direction. Your Pilot will check the latest forecasts shortly before the flight period to ensure that we launch from a site that will give us the longest and safest flight and mean we don’t end up in the sea! More information on this can be found on our Launch Sites page.
Want to book a date for your flight at the same time as purchasing Vouchers?
Availability for our flights is constantly changing with every phone call and email! To book a date at the same as purchasing your Vouchers call us on 01303 812 812 or send us an email to check your preferred date.
What about the weather?
Hot air ballooning is a very weather dependent activity. Certain conditions are unsuitable for the safe operation of our balloons, including winds exceeding 8 knots, rain, poor visibility, low cloud and thunder storms. As the English weather can be somewhat unpredictable, it is not unusual to have to reschedule your flight for an alternative date on several occasions. Our Vouchers are non refundable but as extra peace of mind, your Voucher comes with free Weather Insurance so if your flight is postponed on 5 or more dates during the validity of your Voucher we will extend it for a further 3 months for free.
Who can fly with us?
If you are aged 7 or over and at least 1.4m tall, not pregnant or recovering from recent surgery and in good health then we would love to have you along! If you weigh over 18 stone you will have to purchase a weight supplement voucher, please email us before you purchase your Voucher for more information about this.
