FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How safe is a balloon? Hot air ballooning is considered as one of the safest forms of flying. It is much safer than flying with a plane.
How high do balloons fly? We will fly quite low for a while to show you the rock formations from touching level and also fly around 2000 feet to taste the feeling of being a bird around the entire Cappadocia. You will be able to see more than 80-90 km (40-50 miles) in diameter in a sunny day with the balloon.
Why do we fly in the early morning? We prefer to fly during the first hours after the sunrise because it is the calmest, coolest part of the day. This makes things easier for soft landings and maximum lifting capacity of the balloon. In addition, there is the splendor of a beautiful sunrise.
What do I wear and bring? You should wear jeans or casual trousers and flat heeled shoes in summer. You should definitely wear some warm clothing in winter time. Although we usually land close to a road, you may be walking through fields. It is no colder in the balloon than on the ground, yet you may wish to bring a light jacket. Layered clothing will be the best as sometimes the weather might be different in the air than the ground. It is a must to bring your camera fully charged as you will take many lovely pictures of incredible Cappadocia.
Where do we go? We change our take-off site everyday according to wind speed and direction so that you can see the best valleys of Cappadocia. The sky is layered with air currents, so the pilot heats the air inside the balloon with the burner to rise into currents with different directions.
Where do we land? We land at different locations every day as everything is depending on the weather. Your pilot will begin the gentle descent when he finds an appropriate landing site where we are met by our experienced ground crew who are following us all the time on the ground.
Do you have Insurance? Yes. All passengers are insured up to 1,000,000 EURO.
Can we fly with our children? Children between 7-12 years old can fly with a responsible adult. However, we are not able to fly children under 7 years.
When do you cancel the flight? When the wind is faster than 10 miles per hour, during heavy rain or snow or in a very foggy day, the flight will be canceled. You will receive a full refund if we have to cancel your flight.
Can pregnant women fly? Unfortunately, we are not able to fly with pregnant women incase of a bumpy landing even though it occasionally happens.
Do we see sunrise from the balloon? We usually take-off with the sunrise and fly during the Golden Hour for photography. Sometimes, we might have to take-off later due to weather conditions.
