Our balloon ride was wonderful. Thank you to our pilot and his crew. Our bucket list has one less item on it now!

Totally fantastic experience. I felt safe the entire time. The crew was professional and entertaining. Where else could you have a full breakfast truly in the middle of nowhere? Awesome.

Pilot Randy was very professional along with the ground crew. The entire crew made sure plenty of pictures were taken. Unfortunately, the winds were against us for our ride. Our altitude gain was greater that our distance covered. We had what is called “A Boomer Rang Ride”. We will have to try again since the actual ride was fantastic! Sometimes you just have to have a re-ride!

The pilot, Randy, and his entire ground crew were extraordinarily gracious, welcoming, polite, professional, & accommodating. They infused humor into the morning, but were knowledgeable, as well. They made sure we all had the pictures we wanted so we could remember our adventure. I highly recommend Arizona Balloon Safaris & would fly with them again!

From Our Editors

Randy Long entered the working world as a travel agent, a vocation that whet his appetite for globetrotting, adventure, and haggling with airlines. When he became a father and husband, he passed a passion for thrill seeking on to his family, and their recent escapades include scuba diving in Barbados and dog sledding in Alaska. It was this thirst for exploration and a love of aviation that drove Randy to become an FAA-certified powered-parachute instructor and found Arizona Powerchutes.

Powered parachutes are comprised of two-seater, wheeled carts that float 20 feet beneath 40-foot parachutes. At sunrise—or sunset during the cooler months—Randy and a passenger climb aboard the cart, and Randy hits the throttle, gathering speed for about 100 feet before the parachute fully inflates and hoists the cart into the air. Randy adjusts the altitude to his patron's comfort level and steers crafts over the exotic plants and mountain silhouettes of the Sonoran Desert, averaging a speed of 26 miles per hour. After journeys, powered parachutes float to land safely, as they are inspected by the pilot prior to each flight and by an FAA-approved facility after every 100 hours of operation.
