We were established in 1988, celebrating our 25 anniversary. We are a full time & full service company. Ballooning is all we do. At Gentle Breeze Hot Air Balloon Co, a team of commercially rated, FAA-certified pilots whisk passengers skyward on journeys over southern Ohio and northern Kentucky. One-hour flights take off from Lebanon Warren County airport and travel as high as to 2,000 feet, where visitors can take in panoramic views and snap pictures. Retrieval crews track each trek from the ground and transport guests back to their meeting location.
Along with standard flights, Gentle Breeze’s team hosts specialties such as private couples flights followed by champagne toasts, Hummer or Escalade limo rides to launch sites, and voyages over Cincinnati and Dayton’s metro areas.
To maintain its 100% safety record, Bella Balloons Hot Air Balloon Company employs an arsenal of FAA-certified commercial pilots. After a pre-flight briefing, where you'll meet your pilot and flight crew and learn the necessary facts about hot-air balloonistry, the propane burners are fired up and your inflatable vessel is inflated with motorized fans (takes about 30 minutes). From there, you'll slip the surly bonds of earth for an awe-inspiring hour of panoramic sightseeing from the comfy confines of an oversized picnic basket. The airborne adventure will skim over treetops and stampeding herds of wild office workers, soar among flocks of birds, and rise to 1,000 feet using only the wind as your propeller. The sunrise and sunset flights mean you'll enjoy glorious lighting conditions for photographs, marriage proposals, and marriage retractions.
Sportations connects amateur adrenaline jockeys to certified professional adventurers, drawing from a nationwide network of aeronauts and speed demons to introduce habitual pedestrians to the wonders of skydiving, ballooning, hang gliding, and stock-car racing. Thrill seekers can zipline across a forest canopy, hollering like Tarzan or taunting nearby birds until they agree to race. Helicopter tours ferry patrons skyward over landmarks and cityscapes, whereas paragliding adventures get up close and personal with blue skies and clouds. For most sports, Sportations accommodates groups of any size, from physics classes empirically proving gravity's existence to solo ballooning supervillains declaring dominion over all they see.
