Stuart Enloe has logged some serious time in the sky. He's spent more than 200 hours in gas balloons, performed more than 80 parachute jumps, flew for 600 hours in airplanes, and totaled a whopping 2,700 hours in hot-air balloons. In total, he has spent enough time in the air to justify carving a second home into a cloud?more than 145 days.
At his main aerial outlet, Balloon Atlanta, Stuart carries this experience with him on every flight. He maintains a fleet of colorful hot-air balloons, available for scenic flights over some of the Southeast's most stunning landscapes. His passengers float over Lake Lanier, just barely skimming the surface, or sail up until mountains frame the warm light of sunset and set the scene for a romantic kiss or engagement. Regardless of which route he follows, a dedicated crew follows on the ground to pack away equipment and provide passengers a ride back to the starting point once the balloon lands.
Imagine floating with the dancing wind, somewhere between the treetops and the clouds, a unique experience that airplanes and helicopters can't capture. An FAA-licensed pro pilots Sun Dancer, which lives up to its name as it waltzes amid the tranquil breezes and the sun?s gentle rays. Hot air balloons launch at either sunrise or shortly before sunset, weather permitting. Sunrise flights are more peaceful, sometimes with a hint of fog hovering below, while sunset flights are more lively, sometimes flying low enough to chat with pedestrians on the ground recently diagnosed with an incurable case of gravity. While flying, customers might see the Chattahoochee River, Lake Lanier, Stone Mountain, Atlanta?s skyline, the Appalachian Foothills, and wildlife scurrying through trees and tall grass. Flights last up to an hour, but Magic Carpet Ride suggests planning for up to four hours, as attendees assist with bringing Sun Dancer to life, then enjoy a post-flight champagne celebration.
Balloons Over Georgia's owners Daryl and Lynn's flirtation with flotation began as a hobby, and then grew into a full-time family business, allowing them to share the breathtaking skies and sights of Northern Georgia. Helmed by certified FAA pilots and holding up to 16 passengers, the colorful, inflatable vessels haul groundlubbers up and over the skyline, at times skimming treetops or sailing at thousands of feet, depending upon wind, weather, and which measuring stick they use. On days when the clouds cooperatively part, the 40–50 miles of visibility incorporate stunning vistas of downtown Atlanta's high rises, Stone Mountain’s carved façade, or the vast, glittering puddle of Lake Lanier. Low-altitude riders occasionally spot deer frolicking beneath the craft or observe the grace of a red-tailed hawk hunting unsuspecting prey such as a mouse or a senator's toupee.
Air Balloon Rides Atlanta provides passengers with a one-of-a-kind view of the local landscape from the wickered confines of a blissfully bobbing basket. Each sunrise or sunset atmospheric cruise begins with a safety briefing, including an explanation of how to pronounce Sir Isaac Newton's name backwards to reverse the laws of gravity. Following the preliminaries, mock the futile flapping of penguins and ostriches while climbing upwards of 3,000 feet into the air, where the sky chariot and FAA-licensed pilot will carry passengers back to the days when all transportation was balloon-based. After an approximately hour-long flight that might travel as far as 15 miles, passengers celebrate the return to Earth with a Champagne reception and receive a personalized flight certificate autographed by the balloon's pilot, crew chief, and highly literate cirrus clouds.
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.
