Balloon captains pilot their crafts over the countryside at speeds usually no more than 8 miles per hour during each 45-minute flight. They then touch down to celebrate with a post-flight nonalcoholic sparkling beverage. Because ballooning is a fair-weather activity, flights may not take off in the event of rain, excessive wind, or flocks of paper airplanes.
Boise Hot Air Company
As the early-morning sky lightens and the sun paints the horizon in purples, blues, oranges, and yellows, a fleet of balloons takes flight. These are Boise Hot Air Company’s balloons—colorful inflated vessels bedecked with purple and yellow stripes, red checkerboard patterns, and the stars and stripes of the American flag. Captains take groups aloft at 30 minutes before official sunrise in baskets equipped with seats and dividers for added safety. Flying only in fair weather and usually at speeds of no more than 8 miles per hour, the captains pilot leisurely flights low over the countryside of rolling hills from March through November.
