Flight Cancellation

Ballooning is a weather dependent activity.We reserve the right to cancel a flight if safety is ever in question and/or the weather conditions are deemed unfavorable by the pilot. It is important to schedule a balloon flight with a back-up date in mind just in case weather conditions on the scheduled date are unfavorable for balloon flying. Your safety and enjoyment are our top priorities.

Morning Arrival

It is extremely important that you arrive on time to the meeting point on the day of your scheduled flight. It is understandable that, occasionally, people are held up a few minutes here and there and we allow for that when determining what time we meet. Once everyone has filled out their paperwork, it is time for us to continue on to the launch area. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to wait for anyone who is more that 15 minutes late. If we must leave before you arrive, you will be considered a no-show and forfeit any money paid to Winds Aloft Aviation, Inc.

We are more than happy to help you determine the driving time needed in the morning. It is highly advisable to allow yourself an extra 10 or 15 minutes in order to avoid any problems. Please be respectful of everyone and arrive on time!

We will contact passengers on the evening before the flight between 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM to inform them of their flight status and ensure that they have directions to the meeting point.

Please try to provide us with at least two (2) phone numbers were we can contact you. We do not schedule PM flights as weather conditions in South Florida rarely allow ballooning in the afternoon.
