My friend and I took a flight with Chad at the end of July and it was the first time either of us had ever been in a hot air balloon. Chad and his team set the balloon up and talked to us the whole time about the science of flying and he was very thorough in his safety briefing before we got in the basket. The flight was amazing and Chad is an incredible pilot. His ground crew, Vicki and Mike were very friendly and efficient and were very knowledgeable as well. The scenery amazing, the touchdown gentle and the celebratory treats we got after the flight lovely. It was a beautiful day with a great pilot and I highly recommend Nostalgia Ballooning!

Chad, the owner and pilot gave us a fantastic experience! He should be considered among the best of pilot's. He landed once on a very narrow road in surrounded by trees, a house, a gully and an escarpment with the most gentle touchdown you can get. His knowledge of ballooning and his safety record are exemplary. Vicky was fantastic too! The after balloon trip was fun and engaging. This company deserves the finest recommendation and is most highly recommended.
