HOT AIR BALLOON RIDING

The balloon is designed for 4 passengers and a pilot. During the summer and spring the flights are carried out 2 times a day, in the mornings and evenings. In this interval, mainly in the afternoon, there is a high solar activity, and the uneven heating of the planet Earth might cause some strong upward and downward streams, that might cause some obstacles for the flight of the balloon. In the winter you can fly at any hour during the day. The winter flights are beautiful in their own way, as the air is very crisp, and you can admire the stunning winter sights of Armenia from the above. Usually hot air balloons can fly at a height of several kilometers. Without any oxygen equipment, a flight at 3,000-4,000 meters is considered to be a safe one. Our free flight plan takes 4-5 hours, it includes the meeting of the representatives, transportation to the area of the flight, the process of preparing the balloon for flight, the introduction of flight conditions, the ceremony of awarding a certificate of the first flight, and the treats of champagne and sweets. The flight itself lasts for 1-1.5 hours. We offer a Tour Group Flight, Personal Flight, Wedding Proposals, Dinner in the Sky, VIP Package and Wedding Ceremony in the Sky.
