Scott with Bonaire Charters knows ballooning! He is a master balloonist and gives such attention to your trip. From the sparkling toast to the memorable photographic CD presented at the end of the best hour of your life or at least the top!

Wonderful experience with Captain Cohrs and Bonaire Charters! Couldn't ask for a more beautiful sunrise and flight over Charlottesville. First time up in a hot air balloon and would definitely do it again!

We had the honor of experiencing an amazing balloon ride with Bonaire. I called several operators in Charlottesville and I chose Bonaire because of how responsive Scott was to calls. Scott is top notch. He was incredibly responsive throughout all aspects of the trip. He immediately called back to help use set up our trip and was very flexible about... More

A GREAT FLIGHT, beautiful sunrise and fantastic views over central Virginia, got some really cool photos, couldn't wait to share them on facebook. Scott & JR were professional and friendly. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and hope to do it again, perhaps during the autumn season!

High praise for Bonaire charters and Scott, our pilot and guide. Beautiful weather, and we were up in the air early enough to catch the sunrise. Scott is easy going, and I loved that he explained about the air currents, where we were headed and pointed out various landmarks. Great launch, and easy landing - I highly recommend this as... More

This was the best hot air balloon trip I've taken. We had an early morning flight on July 20 and the 3 pilots decided to take off from the same field. The launch was interesting - lots of great photos - and all went smoothly. The Bonaire balloon was tracking toward Keswick where there passengers were staying. The other balloons... More

My wife and I had the opportunity to do our first hot air balloon experience with Scott of Bonaire Charters while staying at Keswick Hall. He has well over 20 plus years of experience flying a hot air balloon and it shows. After sending up a test balloon, we launched from an area behind Keswick Hall and flew about 12... More

My husband and I have been up with Scott 2x in the last 5 years..first time we took our kids, they had a fantastic time! Scott Cohrs is an excellent pilot and I felt completely safe and comfortable on my first flight. The scenes from up above were amazing, and the peaceful relaxation of floating through the sky was one... More

Flew with Scott and Bonaire Charters recently. Great host and pilot. It was the four of us and Scott. Weather was perfect. We felt totally safe. Scott is such an easy going, knowledgeable and fun guy to "hang out" with. Over the years, our family has taken many guided outdoor experiences. Sometimes the guides are just over the top and...

I was able to take a second trip with Bonaire Charters after taking my first one in November. You just can't go wrong going up with these guys - they are just so much fun! Both flights were really fun of course! They were both sunrise flights in very nice weather. What was interesting on this flight was going with... More
