When traveling, you should not have to worry about whether your recreational activities are safe or not. Fortunately, hot air ballooning is one of the safest forms of flight known to man. Each Hot Air Expeditions pilot has hundreds of hours of hot air balloon flying experience, as well as a Federal Aviation Administration Certified Pilot's License. Our hot air balloons are of the highest quality and are inspected regularly by a Federal Aviation Administration approved facility to ensure they remain in perfect working order.
Your safety is always our number one priority, and Hot Air Expeditions is committed to only flying in safe conditions and balloons. We will not launch a balloon when it is too windy, or in unstable weather conditions. Prior to every flight, the balloon, envelope, rigging and gondola are inspected to ensure safety standards are met. On the occasion of poor weather, your flight will be rescheduled at your convenience.
Not only is ballooning safe, hot air balloons are environmentally clean, propane powered aircrafts. The propane used to provide the balloon's lift is completely burned with no residual fumes or exhaust. Hot Air Expeditions is committed to taking care of the pristine Sonoran Desert we love, and use for balloon take-offs and landings.
