Hot-air balloons are typically multicolored to make them pleasing to the eye and to keep birds from mistaking them as oversized berries that could feed the whole neighborhood. See the practical side of balloon design with this Groupon.

Along with two other riders and the pilot, guests fly over the Pioneer Valley for approximately one hour. Before each flight, riders and their pilot decide on a meeting place where they can park their vehicles and head to a predetermined takeoff spot. Post-landing, participants share a champagne toast and appetizers, after which the ground crew drives each participant back to their cars.

Aerostat Promotions

Partnered with a ground crew predominately made up of fellow pilots, Dick Guisto, Mike Florio, and Vinnie Melling harness their commercial-pilot expertise for each Aerostat Promotions flight. After a half-hour of balloon inflation and preparation, up to four guests join their pilot at sunrise or 2.5 hours before sunset for an hour-long flight that affords aerial views of the Pioneer Valley’s breathtaking landscapes, abundant wildlife, and residential homes. Meanwhile, a chase team tracks the balloon from terra firma as it traverses approximately 10 miles of sky. Once visitors and their pilot rendezvous with the team, balloons are packed into a truck or twisted into to-scale elephant balloon animals before the group shares a champagne toast and appetizers.

The hot air balloon experience was beyond what I had imagined. It was fun, professional and an amazing experience. I would love to go back again with friends of mine instead of riding with a random pair/couple but the people we were with were wonderful, the crew and pilot were so funny and so efficient. I will not say it was a once in a lifetime experience because I would do this over and over again!
