This was our first time going ballooning, and everything from the service to the process and the experience was above and beyond our expectations. They did a really good job with getting people involved with the set up and take down, as well as keeping us informed of the procedure and expectations without being heavy or boring about it. All...

The flight was smooth and seamless. After the flight we received a goodie bag with a tshirt and pin which was the icing on the cake. Great experience,... More

We flew with Fair Winds last Saturday morning, with our two daughters ages 12 and 8. We had tried previously several times to do this trip but had always been thwarted by wind and weather.

Not being a fan of heights, I was very apprehensive. However, Jeff (owner/operator) was so good with everyone, We were completely at ease. I highly recommend this company to anyone thinking about taking a ride.
