My Wife and I started our 17th Anniversary celebration with Thompson Aire and a balloon flight over the fields and swamps of Florida We had an absolutely marvelous time. We felt completely at ease with the pilot and crew and it was worth every penny.

Hot air ballooning was on my bucket list, so I have built up this experience in my head for a long time. Suffice to say, Jeff Thomson and his team went above and beyond my expectations.

We had the most amazing experience with Jeff and his ground crew. My Partner booked it as a surprise for me on a recent holiday to Florida he booked the proposal package and it was handled in the most delightful way you could imagine we were both 'blown away' by the whole experience. This is a very family orientated company... More

STOP! IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR HOT AIR BALLOON RIDES IN FLORIDA LOOK NO FURTHER!!!!!!!! Captain Jeff Thompson is an amazing pilot and we had amazing time. First, you get to help assemble and blow up the balloon. Then, you get in the basket and take off. While in flight Jeff made the statement that all the other pilots watch... More

Captain Jeff Thompson made my first ride hot air balloon ride amazing. He has a charismatic personality and was happy to answer questions and educate riders about hot air balloons. The ride was beautiful and relaxing with an entertaining and friendly pilot.
