The cloud navigators at Airbus Balloon Rides host scenic day trips inside brightly colored vessels that transport passengers across sweeping panoramas of lush farmland. An all-morning or afternoon event, balloon rides gather passengers at the Bloomington Airport to process quick paperwork and drive en masse to a launch site in a picturesque vineyard, where captains inflate balloons with a mixture of hot air and pixie dust. A 5- or 12-passenger balloon then soars aloft, floating over majestic fields, trees, and wildlife during a one-hour journey. After landing and unpacking the balloon, passengers regain land legs to tour a balloon factory, where artisans quilt fabrics into flight-worthy vessels. Tour guides pour glasses of champagne or mimosas for a celebratory toast to new acquaintances, exhilarating journeys, and the newfound knowledge that the house’s roots are showing.

About Airbus Balloon Rides

High above a lush vineyard, the morning sky brims with creatures of flight: an eagle, a large bumblebee, a pigeon that forgot how to land. These were just some of the sights Airbus Balloon Rides' owner Andy Richardson imagined would greet his future down-gazing passengers. He first fell in love with the roar of a hot air balloon's flame just before entering the second grade, and that passion has driven his dreams ever since. Ten years after buying his first balloon at age 14, Andy now commands a fleet of rainbow-colored balloons that come in standard and specialty shapes. These colorful vessels set the elevated stage for individual flights and tethered rides helmed by Andy and his talented team. Flights lift off at sunrise, in the afternoon, and at sunset, when the low sun paints an orange-red glow over water, fields, and reindeer still stuck on rooftops.

Back on land, Airbus Balloon Rides also educates visitors on hot air balloon creation inside their balloon factory, which welcomes tours. At the end of each tour, the guides lead guests in a champagne or mimosa toast with accompanying hors d'oeuvres, celebrating their skyfaring adventures together.
