Come & fly with us

We will begin flying in October this year.  Until then, please call Blue Ridge Ballooning at (434) 589-6213


Who We Are and What We Do

Weather permitting, we fly everyday at sunrise, April 15 through November. In addition to the cool air and calm winds, absolutely essential to hot air ballooning, this time of day enhances the beauty and tranquility of the flight. Your hot air balloon flight will average one hour and all of our flights are followed by a celebration back at the Inn where you will be served Martinelli’s Gold Medal apple cider and given a color flight certificate.  You will also be given a disk with of all the pictures our chief chase crew / photographer took of your flight. These pictures will also be posted on our Facebook page.
