Soaring gently above Middle Tennessee
There is no better way to take in the beauty of our state

Always dreamed of taking a hot air balloon ride? Looking to celebrate a special occasion? Do you just want to scratch it off your bucket list?

It doesn't matter why you want to try the magic of hot air ballooning, the important thing is that you get out there and do it.

Which balloon will we fly?

We have several different balloons in our operation.


The largest balloon, holding up to six (???) passengers in the basket. Perfect for group flights.

Get Lucky

A sport sized balloon, holding up to three passengers in the basket. Great for private flights.


Our newest balloon, with a totally black envelope! It can hold two (???) passengers besides the pilot.

What's hot air ballooning like?

You don't feel motion

One of the most noticeable differences between a balloon and a plane or helicopter is that there is no sensation of movement, because it is so slow and gentle. In normal conditions, even the landing is very soft.

You get a bird's eye view

There is nothing like seeing the world from 500 to 2000 feet up (our normal flight levels).

You can hear everything

Since we fly relatively close to the ground, you can hear dogs barking, and cars honking at you. Often, after taking off or coming in for a landing, you're able to talk to people on the ground!

You'll never forget it

Passengers often say that going on a hot air balloon ride is one of the coolest things they've ever done, and something they'll never forget.
