I recently knocked something off my bucket list and went on a hot air balloon ride with Rick, I am terrified of heights, but LOVED the entire experience. Rick is so knowledgeable about flying and so experienced that he immediately put me at ease. This was by far one of the greatest things I have ever done and can not wait to go back up. The balloon was gorgeous, and he took the time to try and get us over the river for fantastic photos of the reflection of our balloon over the water. Truly a breath-taking experience.
Amazing Surprise Proposal
My boyfriend surprised me with a sunrise hot air balloon ride over Charlottesville with Boar’s Head Ballooning, and not only that, he proposed to me at over 1000 feet! My boyfriend and Rick had been in cahoots to plan this for a while and I think it went perfectly! It was the most amazing and romantic experience I’ve ever had. Rick and Boris are an amazing team, I felt safe in their capable hands and we enjoyed working with them and getting to know them throughout our adventure. We were blessed with good company, perfect weather, and a soft landing! Rick and Boris both took amazing pictures that we will always cherish from this special day. Thank you both again! Looking forward to flying with you again!
The hot air balloon pilot, Rick, makes flying seem safer than walking.
I took my dad for a hot air balloon flight over Charlottesville for his 75th birthday. I am pretty scared of heights…and of anything remotely unsafe or scary. However, the pilot, Rick, put me completely at ease. The whole experience was one of the most, literally, awesome of my life. What a brilliant way to celebrate my dad’s birthday. Thanks to Rick. I would highly recommend the experience.
