Sunset flights are only available November through March. You will meet about 2 hours before sunset and hop in the chase vehicle with the pilot and crew and head to the launch point. From there the pilot will begin to inflate the balloon, which is a fun process that you can help out with.
Albuquerque is one of the most desired places to balloon in the world
Champagne, Mimosas and snacks following the flight
Friendly crew and FAA certified pilot
As you lift off the 1 hour adventure flight begins! You will experience magnificent views of the Rio Grande Valley, Sandia Mountains and the unique Southwestern terrain as far as the eye can see. Remember to bring your camera because there will be plenty of chances to take some amazing photos.
Once your pilot finds a safe landing site, the basket will slowly descend and softly land where the chase vehicles and crew will be waiting. The fun is not over yet though, you will partake in a ceremonial toast celebrating a safe flight and to cap off the wonderful experience you shared with your friends and family.
Be prepared to get pretty physical. This adventure will be interactive so concentration and focus are a must. The hairs on the back of your neck will tingle as your comfort zone is nudged a little. Go in with an open mind and a focused attitude. Enjoy!
