Announcing a new Meetup for Bowling Green Hiking Meetup!

What: Early Morning Hot Air Balloon Flight

When: Saturday, May 29,[masked]:00 AM

Price: $102.50 per person

Fairview Plaza Shopping Center
1005 Fairview Ave
Bowling Green, KY 42103

Experience the thrill of flying in a hot air balloon at an affordable price!

The Hopper Flight can fit up to four passengers in the balloon basket at one time. The first group will go up and enjoy about 25 minutes of flight, as the other passengers follow along in a chase crew underneath. Your personal items will be safe with them. We will then land at a spot where we can trade passengers. Most of the time, the chase crew is at the landing site before we get there. At the end of the flight, we will all be together to enjoy and celebrate.

What to wear?
There is only a 2 - 4 degree temperature variance aloft the flight so dress according to the weather outside. Layers are best and maybe a hat. The balloon burner will produce some heat itself.

Where do we meet?
We will meet at the Fairview Plaza Parking Center at 5:00 a.m. The actual flight itself will leave at 6:00 a.m. The flight location will be determined according to the weather. We need at least 3 mph of wind but not more than 10 mph of wind on the surface and clear skies to give a quality flight. I will let everyone know the day before if any changes are made to the date or time.

What if I'm afraid of heights or have motion sickness?
Ballooning is smooth and quiet. No turbulence to affect your stomach. If you feel comfortable in an airplane then heights shouldn't bother you either. They have never had to land early to sooth someone's fear of heights.

PLEASE BRING YOUR VIDEO CAMERA OR DIGITAL FOR THE simply will not believe the photo moments you will have. There will be a cooler on board the basket for your beverages.

If there any additional questions about this activity please feel free to email me. This activity books up fast...especially a weekend flight. The owner was nice enough to hold this date for 10 days to collect payment. I'm looking forward to will be a fun thing to do as a group.

After our flight we can all go out for breakfast and discuss our adventure!

Payment needs to be collected in advance (by March 12th) in order for me to make the reservation. Once at least six people sign up I will send you an invoice for payment from paypal to your email address or you can use the link above.
