I wanted to celebrate my wife’s birthday with a hot-air balloon flight. I have heard of Thompson Aire on the radio station for a few years. I researched Thompson’s website as well as two other balloon companies. It was easy to make the choice to go with Thompson Aire. Now for my experience. On the confirmation call the evening before...

Before booking our balloon ride, I spent weeks researching which company would be the best. Thompson Aire talks a lot in their website about how they are the best in town and they schedule only 4-6 people on the balloon at once and they offer a full buffet after the ride so we decided to go with them. Before booking... More

Yes we did! We went on vacation. Shame on US! And we sent out notifications by Text, Email, Phone and even put a notice on our Online Flight Calendar! So we hardly went away without notifying anyone. I will upload the photo of the actual Text sent to the SAME number that called more than TWO WEEKS before the flight... More

First class people and company. It was a little more expensive than other options but more than worth it with the professional service and expertise. You can tell that these people have a passion for what they do and do it to the best of their ability. This was a special day for me and my new Fiance and she... More

Absolutely Fantastic! One of the best experiences I've (or WE've) ever had! Thought it would be an unforgettable surprise to propose in a balloon... It couldn't have been any better!! The balloon ride is an amazing experience and everyone should try it if they have the chance. Our pilot Jeff made the ride even more special. From the moment he... More

We went up on 06/01. It was a very early start as the pick up was at 5:45. After a briefing it was off to a field in Kissimmee to unpack the balloon. These things are huge close up. We were in the sky around 7am and went along Highway 27. No real landmarks but I guess they can't go... More
