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.

The best experience of my life! The Thompson's make you feel like family. From the beginning they make you apart of the whole experience from start to finish! The captains and ground team go out of their way to show you sights unseen! Can't describe the feeling of floating over the sky and watching the sunrise! A must on your... More

Captain Jeff Thompson is so passionate about hot air balloons. He lives, breaths and sleeps them. His friendly, funny and professional manner is fantastic. We had an amazing... More

This is something I had on my bucket list...but I do not like heights. No problem. The professionals who handle the balloons lived up to all my expectations....it was a wonderful experience... Going over Disney... Seeing the sun rise, having a yummy breakfast. All good!!!😍

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...

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.

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
