Rick took us up in his balloon on a great spring morning just about 1 week ago. My wife had always talked about wanting to take a balloon ride and the fact that it was her sister’s birthday gave us a great excuse to finally take the plunge. Rick was courteous and professional and took special care of my sister-in-law, who is special needs. We were all very happy with the entire experience and would not hesitate to recommend Rick to others.
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!
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.
