This was an awesome and spectacular experience. Capt Jeff made us feel like part of the crew. We helped with the inflation of the balloon and then also the repack. Capt Jeff and Capt John were very informative in the history of the hot air balloons.

as we floated up above the fog layer, experience the height of trees and took flight, we felt such a stillness, a sense of peace and quiet in the beauty surrounding us all around and below. There's nothing else in the world like this amazing experience to leave you with such a memory to never forget. Captain Kim made us... More

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...
