    What to Expect
    Standard basket hot air balloon flight reserves flights for you and your group, maybe with others sharing the same flight in one of our balloons. Pending the number of guests who reserve the same Standard Balloon, your flight maybe with others. 

    Balloon baskets are sized according the number passengers it will carry, from an open sport basket to our compartmentalized ride baskets. (No matter what the basket size each person will have the same cozy space.)  Ride baskets, designed with safety first, feature compartments, higher sides & padded side walls for comfort of our guests as well as providing functionality.  Flights usually originate from our primary location - Warren Co. airport, Lebanon.  Passengers have a bird's eye view of Warren County and surrounding areas. Enjoy complimentary bottle water & celebratory champagne toast available for passengers over 21 post flight with souvenir champagne cups.  Flight certificates & non-alcoholic sparking are available upon request.

    This is not an exclusive basket – maybe with other passengers - required minimum bookings confirms flights.

    And thank you for your patience and hanging in there with Mother Nature didn't agree with our ballooning schedule. Unfortunately weather postponements happen, but when the flight occurs, it's all worth it! Thank you for flying with us, Brian is our senior pilot. We'll let him know you had a great time!

    Our pilot Brian and the entire Gentle Breeze team did an amazing job on our flight! They were so good at involving our 3 boys in the take off and landing process and giving them jobs to help. It's something that they will always remember. The ride was super smooth and very

    Thank you Cara and Justin!!! The boys were a HUGE help! Especially getting the balloon back into the bag and 'squeezing' the remaining air out. Ballooning being a team sport helps to build camaraderie. (And any little help is also appreciated). They also had an interesting chase as the winds were a bit flirty with the balloon. Thank you for flying with us it was a pleasure meeting you and the family.

    Thank you Connie!!! And Happy Birthday again! From the photos it does look like you had a gorgeous day to fly. Patrick is very good with everyone and as with the other pilots has great piloting skills with everyone's safe keeping in mind first. (I forwarded your review to him) When you friends contact us, as always we try to honor all requests. So just let them know to let us know to request Patrick if they like. Thank you again and we appreciate the time you spent with us.

    Hi Steve, I remember that evening! Dan landed in a very large front yard. It was a perfect landing. We had 4 of the balloons up that evening. Our own mini balloon rally. Yes Dan is entertaining and loves teach and explain the ins and outs of ballooning. (I'll be sure to forward your review to him.) Thank you for flying with us, your assistance on inflation and the pack away. We appreciate your kind words.
