I was fortunate enough to receive a gift card to the Boar’s Head Inn for my retirement and decided to use the card for a balloon ride. My daughter and I couldn’t have picked a more perfect day for our flight. Although we had to reschedule a few times because of Virginia’s ever-changing weather we finally had lift off on October 21st. We were joined by a adventurous couple from Williamsburg, who were just as excited as my daughter and I about our first flight. The trees had begun to change colors and the sights were incredible. Rick, our pilot, has 40 years of flying experience and although he and the crew were all business in the inflation of the balloon once we were floating he relaxed and pointed out sights along the way. He told us of the years of experience he had and we are fortunate to have such a skilled pilot in the Charlottesville area. Rick explained everything to the four of us and was pleased that we had an extra long flight due to favorable winds. We felt safe and comfortable with Rick as our pilot, and although I have a tendency to have trouble with height flying in a balloon is nothing like looking down from a high place. The crew, who chased us are experienced and made our landing and return to the Boar’s Head Inn delightful. The crew took several pictures of us before during and after the flight. We received a CD of the pictures while we had refreshments back at the Inn. Thank you, Rick Behr and crew for such a wonderful experience. And thanks to my co-workers for such a perfect gift for my retirement.
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.
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.
