Hot air balloons need light winds to fly safely, approximately 5mph on the surface or less. On average, passengers can expect to schedule 1-5 times before getting a date where the weather is suitable for flying. We get more morning flights in than evening flights. It tends to be less windy in the mornings and we also can sometimes get "timed out" waiting for the wind to drop on evening flights which can push us out of a flight. It generally is windier during the colder months and our heavy flying season is June through November when the weather is best, however, we book all year round.
