Commercially licensed pilots at Beautiful Balloons, a 26-year-old company with a perfect safety record, ferry visitors over the Rio Grande valley during 1- to 1.5-hour morning balloon flights. As they float along, clients ask their local pilots to point out unique landmarks, such as treetops shaped into presidential profiles, as they soak up sweeping views of Albuquerque and its surroundings. After each ride, staffers reward clients with commemorative first flight certificates, trading cards of the vibrant-hued balloon they flew in, and a celebratory post-flight brunch. Unlike bears and TV addicts, balloons do not hibernate at length, so clients can fly year round.
