What to expect
Step by step, what to expect on the day of your flight.
France Montgolfières offers you an unforgettable experience, respecting your comfort and safety..
Our flights can be enjoyed by everyone, individuals or groups. There are no particular age or physical requirements.
Balloon flights take place at sunrise or sunset when the winds are calm and the air is cool and stable.
First you will discover the balloon preparation and inflation, and once aboard, you are ready to float where the wind takes you for approximately one hour.
After a gentle take off,. let the wind carry you, and maybe pick a leaf in a passing tree, or climb so you can touch the clouds, without the slightest feeling of vertigo!
The spectacle that unfurls before you will remain engraved in your memory for ever, so don't forget to take your camera, with a charged battery and empty memory card!
During the flight the pilot is in permenant contact with the ground crew who will be there to greet you at the landing. After the packing away of the balloon you will be summoned for the traditional “toast des aéronautes” a convivial celebration, before escorting you back to the departure point.
