Balloon ride – Tyrol – The procedure

After we got to know each other at the meeting point, we drive to the launch site in our car. Rigging a balloon involves building the basket and expanding and inflating the envelope. Here we need the help of our guests, because without your help we cannot start!

After the start we drive about 150 - 300 m over the landscape. The journey turns into a voyage of discovery, because there is seldom a view as beautiful as here in Tyrol. Although it's still morning, we're spotted! Everyone looks up to us and waves to us! For example, the workers on the street or the students who are on their way to school! The balloon continues to float and our gaze is directed upwards. We're rising fast! Excellent! During the ascent, the sun begins to warm us. Thank God, because it was a bit cold at the starting point. The mountains of Tyrol are now at our feet.

After we have solid ground under our feet again, we pack up the balloon together and drive back to the meeting point. The so-called "balloon pilot's baptism" with champagne and certificate also takes place at the meeting point.
