A storm off the East Coast affected the wind as far in as Charlottesville so our May morning flight with Rick Behr of Boars’ Head Ballooning was cancelled the night before our scheduled flight. Rick offered to reschedule for the day after in hopes that the wind might calm. We said yes! Cancelled again. After that, we had only one more day in Charlottesville but no opportunity for a third try as Rick was completely booked for that day. Didn’t look like we were going to get our balloon ride. Then Rick offered to check with another balloon pilot in the area; a competitor or Rick’s. Our last day in Charlottesville proved to be perfect weather for hot air ballooning so off Rich and his balloon-basket full of students went, soaring skyward towards beautiful puffs of clouds. We watched them ascend from the perch of our own already airborne balloon. Thank you Rick for making it happen!
Great experience for any occasion!
Rick was a great pilot with a great sense of humor and stories about his experiences in ballooning.I felt more than safe while up in the air with him and the views were fantastic! Would recommend to anyone!
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.
