A Great Experience
Rick Behr and his flight crew were very pleasant and professional. Our safety was their first concern, so our flight was rescheduled when the winds were a bit too high on our designated day. But when we rescheduled for two days later, conditions were perfect and so was our flight. They have a special accessible basket (with a door) available upon request, so ANYONE can fly. Our group had a 91 year old who says “Everyone should have this experience!” It’s at the same time both peaceful and exciting, comfortable and thrilling, what you’d hoped for and still surprising. The post-flight toasts and picture viewing at the historic Boars Head Inn cap a great time. Don’t miss the chance to fly with Boars Head Ballooning.
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.
Wonderful experience and service
Had an amazing experience with Boar’s Head Ballooning. The weather was perfect and the owner, Rick Behr, gave a group of friends and me an incredible and long trip over the Charlottesville area. Rick and everyone else working there were friendly, communicative, cool, and just fun to be around. They were fun to talk to and very understanding, and they even taught us about the ballooning process. In such a beautiful city/area, and with a great group of people at Boar’s Head Ballooning, people in Charlottesville are missing out if they haven’t taken a hot air balloon ride with these people yet.
