This is the team to go for if you want your hot air ballooning trip. These guys are without doubt the best. Smaller intimate balloons make for a more personal and intimate experience. Scale the heights, brush the tree tops and pick off your own pine cone!! Absolutely brilliant and a great breakfast to round it off with. A must... More

Flight was 16th September 2014. My wife and I booked this flight, well actually it was a surprise for the wife on the first morning of our holiday. As soon as we arrived the team explained what they were doing this immediately put us at ease, being in a small group we felt really looked after, a really personal service.... More

I must admit I was a little skeptical when I first booked. It was our first time and I planned to propose to my Fiancée so I wanted everything to go perfect and run smooth. After a few failed attempts to fly due to the bipolar weather Florida State has to offer, we finally got to fly. Everything was amazing!!!... More

My brother-in-law, sister-in-law and I all participated in our first hot-air balloon ride last week with Thompson Aire Inc. and it was an amazing experience! Our pilot was Doug. Never were any if us uncomfortable or uneasy at any time. He was an experienced pilot and entertaining also! My husband and niece decided to take part in the Chase option... More

What an amazing experience for my 50th birthday! A hot air balloon ride was on my bucket list and Thompson Aire certainly made it a total joy.
