What You're Saying
A true Charlottesville experience!
This time of year is the best for the Sunrise flight. With the cool, crisp mornings and prevailing winds blowing to the North, the flight path shows off some spectacular foliage. i could not take enough pictures. I was surprised it was not very cold, but when the pilot explained we are moving WITH the wind, so you aren’t feeling it, it made sense, but the opposite of saling, so dress for the temperature! Rick, the pilot, sure knows his stuff and is very informative. When we flew over the reservoir, he dipped the basket so it skimmed the water. Wasn’t at all scary, and very impressive flying. we were in the air about 45 minutes before we set down in a field, and every pitched in to roll up the balloon to pack it in the trailer that followed our flight. A van takes you back to the boars Head Inn. This is not a cheap outing – over $200 per person – but unforgettable and great for a special occasion for when wealthy relatives visit!
This was one of my all-time favorite adventures! From seeing first-hand how the balloon is set up, to bringing it down and helping pack it away, it was genuinely perfect!
Fabulous day of ballooning-delightful pilot
My husband and I went flying with Bear Balloon in June 2010 and had the most wonderful time! We were met at the Boar’s Head Inn and kindly instructed as to what to expect. We were taken to our departure location and had the most delightful flight. I loved the sensation of gliding through the air. The pilot was knowledgeable and personable and my husband and I liked him very much. After our flight we were given pictures of our flight and a toast back at the Boar’s Head Inn. It was a delightful experience and I look forward to flying with Bear Balloon Corporation again.
