A hot air balloon is one of the most fantastic aircraft to ride in, as well as to fly.
With today's modern balloons and the pilots who fly them, statistically, a hot air balloon is one of the safest forms of flight.
Hot Air Balloon Flights operated by Thompson Aire are conducted 7 days a week at sunrise. Capt Thompson is one of the six master pilots and most experienced hot air balloon pilot in the Orlando area. Jeff has been licensed to fly balloons for over 40 years. Passionate about flying his entire life, his enthusiasm and knowledge will have you spellbound.
Since our flying area is around the Disney World area we meet near the main entrance to Disney World.
We meet at The Maingate Lakeside Resort.
The Maingate Lakeside Resort is located just 1.8 miles from the main entrance to Disney World on Hwy 192. From Interstate 4, take exit #64 and go west on Hwy 192 (5) five traffic lights and the Maingate Lakeside is on the right at the 5th light. Right behind Walgreen's.
