Talk about a breathtaking experience! Michele and I flew in the balloon named "Lightening" on October 14th and had an absolutely fabulous time. Seeing the woodland scenery and wild life from 1500 feet about the ground was awesome. D.J. Ostrand, the pilot, provided a fantastic flight. Diana, his wife, and other chase crew personnel offered warm and friendly conversation during the drive to the launch site and again returning from the landing area. We cannot say enough good things about everyone that works for "Sky Adventures"! Great job Dennis in assembling this truly magnificent team of people. Finally, thank you all for the memories Michele and I will cherish from this phenomenal hot air balloon ride!!

From the very first phone call to hours after the flight, Dennis was always very pleasant, helpful, patient and accommodating. The weather did not cooperate for us on the first, 2nd and 3rd try but safety is first. Dennis was patient and was able to finally gather up a catch crew to take us on the last day of our vacation. We met the crew at Red Knapps and like Dennis they were all very caring, helpful and fun too! Our pilot DJ is very knowledgable and our ride was amazing. There is no need to be nervous even if you are afraid of heights. Inflating the balloon and packing the balloon are all a great part of the adventure as well. After the flight we had champagne, snacks and we were given very nice souvenirs. Hours after the flight, Dennis sent us some pictures of us in the air. If you have any questions, even if you are not sure if you are going to book, please do not hesitate to give Dennis a call. He would be more than happy to talk to you. And once you talk to him you will understand why I would highly recommend you book with Sky Adventures!

I cannot say enough positive things about Sky Adventures! My brother and I decided to surprise my mom with this experience for Mother’s Day. Sky Adventures offered a 3-person private flight that not many other companies offered. I decided to give them a call and Dennis was very informative and went over all of the details. From that initial conversation I knew we were in good hands. On the day of the flight we made the trip to Oxford and dined at Red Knapp’s American and Grill (the meeting place) which was delicious. Dave was our pilot and he was calm and had a good sense of humor. My brother is/was afraid of heights and Dave made the experience very comfortable for him. Dave was a great pilot, answered all of my mom’s questions and wonderings, pointed things out (deer, people waving, DTE, Mt. Holly), told stories, and was great at what he does. It was evident Dave loves his job and I appreciate his hospitality. It was pretty neat to be involved in the pack up of the balloon and basket once we landed. This wasn’t the end of our experience though. We all went back to Red Knapp’s for a champagne toast and bread and were gifted two surprise souvenirs (a magnetic pin and engraved glass block). The crew was very friendly and I would recommend anyone to fly with Sky Adventures! I cannot think of another business that has treated my family and I as great as Dennis, Dave, and the team at Sky Adventures! Thank you VERY much. While I anticipated this being a once in a lifetime experience, I would definitely consider saving up to fly with this company again.

We just came back home after taking a balloon ride, and it was great. We happened to land in a field of wildflowers that we chanced upon, and luckily, the field had a wide path which had been mowed. We actually landed on the path, which was wonderful, so we didn't have to walk through tall grass (which may have had ticks). It was a very soft landing. The entire flight (takeoff and landing) was gentle - our pilot was Richard, who pointed out some interesting landmarks along the way. We were able to participate in the packing-up process, which was really neat. Thank you, Richard and our chase team!
