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

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

I just got home from my trip to VA and the highlight of my trip was a hot air balloon ride with Bonaire Charters! Scott is a really fun pilot to fly with and put me totally at ease. We flew right over Charlottesville and the scenery was amazing. I just looked again at my pictures from the trip and... More

My husband and I went on a balloon ride to celebrate our anniversary back in the fall. It was fantastic. I definitely recommend going at a time where you can see the foliage!

My wife and I chartered with Bonaire for our 25th anniversary. we chose them because of the confidence they instilled in me when I called for information. My wife was a bit tentative about flying, but Scott Cohrs, the owner and pilot was patient and reassuring as to how the flight works. The mountain scenery and pastoral setting was beyond... More
