Age / Health

Balloon flying is an appropriate aspect of aviation for every age group. Our youngest guests can sometimes hardly see over the edge of the basket whereas our oldest guests can sometimes be 90 years of age or even older. The only pre-requisite is that you are able to stand unassisted for the duration of the flight. A certain amount of agility is also a benefit, particularly when climbing in and out. Otherwise, no special knowledge or physical conditions are required.

  • However, we do recommend that people with heart or breathing problems should consult their doctor in advance.
  • Pregnant women are not allowed to not climb to high altitudes.

Children

Children are welcome with us. However, we recommend only bringing school-age children but we leave the decision up to the parents. Under their control it is also possible to bring younger children. However, we do advise against bringing children who are too small because they generally get bored after half an hour.

By the way, children up to the age of 12 fly for 1/2 price. Only exeption: Discovery (no price reduction for this flight).

Clothing

As well as sturdy footwear (walking shoes) clothing suitable for the temperatures is recommended. Dress as if you are going for a walk, but not too warmly. No wind blows into the basket and you can also feel the exhaust heat from the burner. Headgear is not mandatory but advantageous due to the heat of the burner. In the summer a T-shirt or shirt with a thicker jumper is sufficient for all eventualities. As our flights generally take place when the sun is shining, you must absolutely remember your sunglasses. Also remember to protect your skin from sunburn. Snow is also hugely reflective, especially in winter!

Personal Items

You are welcome to bring a small rucksack or small bag into the basket with you. We strongly advise against drinking alcoholic drinks before and during the flight which will make the drink after the flight all the more enjoyable. Please bring along your camera, binoculars, camcorder etc. All items are brought along at your own risk in the event of loss or damage.

Cancellation / postponement of flights by passengers

This is possible up to 72 hours before the actual flight departure time without any consequences. In the event of a cancellation between 72 and 24 hours before the flight, Take-Off Balloon AG reserves the right to charge 50% of the amount and in the event of a cancellation within the last 24 hours to charge the full amount. In the event of a no-show on the date of the flight, the validity of the voucher will cease in all cases.
